Hermit of Desolation Sound is Grant Lawrence’s latest story-telling podcast: this is the true tale of a man who dropped out of society to live a self-imposed life of solitude along the shores of the West Coast Canadian rain forest for many years. Russell Letawsky is the hermit – a man who grew up in Alberta and was a downtown Toronto business man before something snapped. He made his way out west and completed an epic crossing of the Coast Mountain Range on foot, without following any trails or roads. In Desolation Sound, British Columbia he lived alone in a tiny, hand-built, one room shack that was way, way off the grid. Then he met the Lawrence family, and an eleven-year-old Grant Lawrence.
