Welcome to The 5 Great Questions podcast, where I ask people interesting questions, and you get to hear their answers.

My guest on episode two is longtime friend and former lost teenage soul Christopher Sell. Chris is a middle school teacher in middle California and is a multi-talented storyteller specializing in thoughtful acoustic songs and the occasional screenplay. Chris is happily married with three kids, one dog, and a trampoline in the backyard.

I introduce the podcast and welcome Chris, and then I unleash him for a ramble of a story that is sometimes excruciating, sometimes profound, and entertaining throughout. The question of what to do when your "Plan A" fails is almost as universal as teenagerism itself. Chris sets the stage of how and why he thought a trip from San Diego to Wilmington, NC would be a good idea after failing out of law school.

Did he make it to Wilmington?

Did he take up smoking?

Did he take his screenplay to Screen Gems and apply for a job?

We answer these questions and more and finally circle back (in multiple attempts!) to help Chris recognize the larger meaning of his journey. And the purpose of such a worthwhile trip.

Lastly Chris shares a fun short involving an ex-gf and caller ID - and why he would have never picked up the phone today.
