Any more?

I have only got until May. Is that the end?

Fantastic listening

Sometimes I feel like I’m there with them. It’s true, so it feels more tense.

I like it

It doesn’t go super in depth and really rushed through the end parts. Not much detail about assimilation back into their lives. Still great though
