A new way to engage books

As a young person I was an avid radio listener, and now as a not-so-young person I listen to a lot of podcasts. Today I listened to a recent episode of Unfictional, a program of storytelling and documentaries from KCRW. The episode "A Need to Build" includes what I found to be an intriguing story of one person's move into bookbinding. As one who also loves and has studied texts, enjoys bookbinding, and has had his own encounters with head trauma, I found this story personally satisfying.

The bookbinder story begins around 17:50, but the first story about building an enormous treehouse is worth the listen. (I'm not sure if embedding the audio is working, so if not, just go to the episode page and listen there.)
