Tales by Tom

This podcast showcases the audio stories of Tom Cagley Sr.

Apr 6, 2014

Welcome to Tales By Tom. Today we continue with the third installment of  "Take It To Heart." In this series my father will make you cry, laugh, reflect and maybe even provoke you.

This podcast includes two new stories:

Doodleedoo is what I do. And you? I have always doodled, sometimes on paper and sometimes in my head, like my son, Nick. My last doodle of note was before a BCS Bowl game. How about you?

When did you first hear your own voice? As a volunteer at a middle school, I helped “engineer” a debate in the 4th/5th grade gifted class and heard the students voice opinions MAYBE for the first time. It made me wonder when I heard mine. How about you?


New Book!  

Recently my father, Tom Cagley Sr published a new book titled, I Was Your Son: A Troubled Journey.  The book is a view into Tom Cagley Sr's soul.  When asked why should anyone read this book ?  He answered, "Because the end effect is restorative and invigorating and because everyone who’s ever had a father like this wants to believe there is a happy way out." 

A recent review stated it even more powerfully, "I received a package from Amazon today, it was your book. I started reading it and I absolutely could not put it down. You really poured your heart and soul into this and it really touched me. Thank you for sharing your journey."

Buy  "Was Your Son: A Troubled Journey" on Amazon
