In this first episode of my podcast, we are having an interview today with author Doug Motel. Doug is the father of a student who is currently attending Kingston High School in Kingston, NY.

Doug: Thanks so much for inviting me on your podcast, Sean. So I have some questions for you about your Kindle ebook, “Mind the Gap, Eight tips for Designing a Custom Gap Year. My first question is, What do you mean, when you say “custom gap year”? What do you mean exactly by that?

Sean: What I mean is exactly what it sounds like. You get to make it up. Unlike when you head off to college and you look at what is required of that major, or what you’re gonna have to be doing in the first semester… this experience is customized to you.
