Ed Gavagan: Drowning on Sullivan Street

.: Please take 16 minutes out of your day and listen to this amazing podcast by Ed Gavagan. Ed lives and works in NYC.¬† I met Ed for the first time a few years ago one on of my trips to NYC, after he met and started dating a friend of mine. He’s an amazing guy, friendly and immediately likeable, and I always look forward to seeing both of them when I am in NYC.

This podcast was posted on 25 August 2008; I don’t know when and where Ed recorded it, but it is part of The Moth Podcast¬†series; its website notes that “The Moth features people telling true, engaging, funny, touching and eye-opening stories from their lives.”. Listen as Ed tells the tale of what happened to him one day while he was walking on Sullivan Street – it is a remarkable story, made even more so by the way Ed tells the story of the day his life changed forever.

Ed’s story is available on this page on the Moth site.
