Boston College faculty member and author Michael Serazio joins Mark to discuss his new riveting and eye-opening new book “THE POWER OF SPORTS: Media and Spectacle in American Culture”.  The immense power of the big sports world to the local ball fields – how athletes (novice to pro), parents and  viewers are hooked into the endless sports cycle that can leave both a financial and time deficit in our lives.

“Mark Farrell is a dynamic speaker who will captivate the audience by sharing his personal story of how he was able to overcome challenges in life and worked his way to success.  We scheduled Mark for 45 minutes, but our students were so engaged in his story that Mark spoke for over 1 hour.  I still have students approach me and discuss Mark's message and say, "if he could do it, so can I”
