    EP 312 - With Fists Raised

    Well...shoot. Thanks for listening to our yarnin’, travelers. This last one has been a long meandering road, full of unexpected twists and turns and yet here we are standin’ at the end of it. It’s a wonderful thing, listeners, finishing a story. Almost as wonderful as starting a new one.  We may be finished up with this tale, but there’s always a new one to tell, if you know where to look. So keep a weathered eye on the horizon. Thanks again for coming with us on this journey. But don’t get too cozy. I’ve a feelin’ we’ve got another one coming right around the bend.

Giddy up!

Really well written and acted show that explores the lives of these different town folk and it really delivers on the feeling of the time it is set in. A great show worth checking out! The show seems to have ended and although I love the podcast I am still yearning for a more clear ending.

Disappointed user and listener ,

Pleasure indeed!

I only discover Pleasure Town a few weeks ago and have been binge listening ever since.
It has been a fabulous journey getting to know the town’s people and piecing together the fragments of their stories, their fortunes and misfortunes.
I love the story and the production but mostly I love the idea of listeners collaboration.
I know you guys all have a day job but please hurry up, I can’t wait for the next season!
