Hey Buddy: A Comedian's Letters Home

Nathan Timmel
Book cover photo: Hey Buddy: Dubious Advice From Dad

Nathan Timmel is a stand-up comedian, which means he can often be away from home on weekends traveling.  Years ago, he decided that time away could include writing letters to reflect on family events and moments.  

After Timmel first became a dad, he wrote letters to his daughter which were published in It's OK to Talk to Animals: (and Other Letters from Dad). Now he is a a father of two kids, and he has been writing advice for a son.  Those letters are published in Hey Buddy: Dubious Advice From Dad.

Timmel joins host Charity Nebbe for the first portion of this Talk of Iowa program.
