Jan 21, 2009 — From the NCPR studios, our guest is Dustin Beall Smith, author of Key Grip: A Memoir of Endless Consequences. Smith has led what used to be called a "checkered" life--full of ups and downs, both literal (as a skydiver) and figurative (as an alcoholic). He has a fresh wisdom and honesty. Very engaging. Ellen Rocco and Chris Robinson host.
