The deeply authentic and courageously vulnerable, Marisol Rerucha, joins me to discuss her new book, Beyond the Surface of Restorative Practices: Building a Culture of Equity, Connection, & Healing.

Our friend and colleague, John Berray, passed away under tragic circumstances in 2020. Father, husband, educator, San Diego County Teacher of the Year, friend...and much more. His memorial was scheduled for Pi Day last March 14th, 2020 and it had to be canceled due to the breakout of the pandemic and much of the world shutting down on March 13th. One year we are...still in the grasp of Covid-19. This is the eulogy I wrote to represent The Five Guys and our special relationship. It would have been delivered with the other 3 (Jarrod Carman, Dan McDowell, & Reuben Hoffman) up on stage with me. One of the cruelties of the pandemic has been the inability to gather together to celebrate, to mourn, to grieve, to commemorate, to memorialize...none of it. With a special thanks to Michele Berray for granting her it is exactly one year later on March 14th, 2021. Pi Day. Feel free to share your thoughts on social media using the #DaveBurgessShow hashtag. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen. If you knew John...well, then you know he was a remarkable man. If you didn't know him, we wish you would have had the chance. We miss you, John.
