You may not know his name, but you certainly know his story.

Jeff Bauman was at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013 when the explosion happened. He lost both legs that day and was immortalized by a photograph of Carlos Arrendondo carrying him to an ambulance.

Jeff's memoir Stronger formed the basis of the movie of the same name which was just released. He is played in the movie by Jake Gyllenhaal.

He called into the WDHA Morning Jolt and spoke with Jim Monaghan about the movie, some personally poignant scenes for him, the incredible performance by Gyllenhaal, and (of course) the Boston Red Sox pitching as the team heads into the playoffs.
