About This Episode
Who’s in your line of dominoes? Who is going to affect you in some way, and have something to say about your future, and ultimately, the future of everyone you touch, and possibly the world? On today’s Tuesday People episode, host Mitch Albom honors a man who did just that. Jack Thomas was the reporter who first covered Morrie Schwartz’s story for the Boston Globe. He sadly passed away earlier this month. Without his story, there would have been no Nightline episode for Mitch to watch that fateful evening that led him to the home of his beloved professor, that led to “Tuesdays With Morrie,” that led to this podcast. And for all of you who “Tuesdays With Morrie,” touched, you have spread Jack Thomas’ work infinitely over the past 25 years. It’s a lesson that teaches us that you never know how far the kindness you extend to one person can go.
I can’t say that there is a lot of people that influence me. I listened to all kinds of people and their opinions and decide if it is something that I need in my life.
You influence Mitch in what you talk about. Most things I can relate to or agree with.
