Coffee With Jeff #172: The Great Farini!

29 mins - Published Sun, Mar 10, 2019 by Jeff Kelley

Imagine a man who defied his parents, turning down the chance to become a doctor. Instead, he followed his dream and became a high wire performer, acrobat, strongman, entertainment promoter, inventor, as well as the first known white man to cross the Kalahari Desert on foot (and live to tell the tale).

This is the tale of a man who had an amazing life; the tale of William Leonard Hunt, better known as The Great Farini – right here on the 172th episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
