What We Have Been Reading | Brian O'Leary

Warren Buffett says to read 500 pages a week.  Yet, The Atlantic recently reported that kids aren't "following in love with reading" anymore... what gives?

Guest: Brian O’Leary is an independent media personality spanning several fields—podcasting, professional copywriting, internet marketing, broadcasting, and more. The mission of this “once & future” baseball coach is to restore, build, and promote a more robust and serious culture.
