900: Once again we celebrate a podcast milestone by learning more about host Fred Greene. This time through the comments and insights from his wife, Joanne who has just written and published her first book called “By Accident: A Memoir of Letting Go” which is available in paperback, e-book, and audiobook from everywhere you get your books. You can also learn more at The book recounts how she gracefully made it through the trauma of being hit by a car as a pedestrian, beating cancer, losing her mother, sister, and brother in a short span of time, and getting caught in a hurricane. The pre-release reviews and blurbs have all been wildly positive and we know that you’ll enjoy, and probably learn a lot, from her story…which some readers have said is a love letter to Fred. This episode also provides you with a chance to meet our two sons and two grandchildren.
