    A Contrarian's Non-Lessons for Life

    Author and Amazing Race winner Josh Kilmer-Purcell reflects on his Midwestern roots, his advertising background, his days as a drag-queen and his current life as a rural farmer to share some of the best "non-lessons" he's ever learned. Watch this hilarious and clever talk, and you just might pick up a true lesson or two (whether Josh likes it or not).
