Ep244: Kennel of Truth

Today, Ian talks with New York Times best-selling author W. Bruce Cameron about his series of wildly popular, dog-centric novels. Lasse Hallström's big-screen adaptation of Cameron's first such book, A Dog's Purpose, debuted earlier this year and was the subject of a damaging media controversy.

Cameron talks about a bit about the resolution of that scandal, but the thrust of this insightful and inspiring conversation is his latest book, A Dog's Way Home, which hit stores in May. Ian asks about the very specific choices the author made in building connections between canine protagonist and reader; how Cameron transitioned from writing humor books like 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter to family pet stories; and the key to nailing time and place in a wilderness adventure without getting lost in the detours.

Episode 244 will fetch you a big bone of contention with a sloppy, wet kiss!
