This is an absolutely fantastic podcast! One of the best I have ever heard --- Breda Donlon Skeados is a born storyteller with a wonderful story to tell. I could have listened to her beautiful speaking voice for hours more. As she introduces us to her lively siblings -- most of whom are still thriving in their 70’s and 80’s -- as well as her remarkable parents, we are completely drawn in and fascinated to learn how their lives unfold. And this is not the story you might expect -- including Breda’s own detour to enter a French convent before coming to America to teach, and ultimately leaving the convent for marriage, motherhood, and an impressive career as an innovative educator. I was sorry when it ended and only wished I’d been a childhood friend of the Donlon clan back in Ireland -- it would have been an extraordinary adventure! Brava, Breda! Thank you for sharing your family and your talents with us.
