Jessica Prentice talks about her children’s book – The Duck With No Legs

Episode 20

OMG.  I can’t believe how great it is to be a podcaster!!  

For today’s show, I interviewed one of my oldest friends!!  How lucky am I???  This conversation, with Jessica Prentice, is all about her book The Duck With No Legs and all of the underlying themes and messages that show up in the sweet, heart warming story.

We get into all sorts of discussions in this show – from spirituality, to overcoming perceived disabilities, to living with the discomfort of not being the child we think our parents want us to be (not to mention parenting a child who marches to the beat of his own drum)…

You are going to love this show!

I do say “asshole” one time, so I marked the episode as explicit – sorry about that. 🙂


I bring up Nick Vujicic – a parapalegic motivational speaker who has an incredible spirit and message for the world.  You can find him at or watch his youtube video about Never giving up by clicking here.
