Husband and Father WARRIOR


We all face hard times. Challenges in life. Sometimes larger than we can ever imagine surviving. It’s in those times you realize you have the power of choice in how to respond in those circumstances. Today we’re talking about making a choice when you are at the intersection of happiness and despair.

It’s not very often I get to interview a friend. But then again, it’s not very often we are fortunate enough to have friends as highly accomplished as Jeff Benedict. Jeff and I go way back having fought the good fight in CT state politics. Jeff is a New York Times best-selling author, a special features writer for Sports Illustrated, and a television and film producer. 

He has written fifteen books on topics ranging from violence against women to a deadly E. coli outbreak to the discovery of a 10,000-year-0ld skeleton in North America. He’s also written for the New York Times, the LA Times, and his stories have been the basis of segments on 60 Minutes, 20/20, 48 Hours, Good Morning America, and the Discovery Channel.

Jeff’s national best-selling book The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football – is being developed into a television drama by STARZ Networks. Jeff is a producer and writer for the show. He is also an Executive Producer on the forthcoming motion picture film “Little Pink House,” based on Jeff’s book by the same title about the controversial Supreme Court decision on eminent domain.
