Fascinating stories and very well produced
I love all the different kinds of stories and people Glen finds for the Stories of You podcast - it's the kind of podcast where I just hit play without even wanting to read the episode description because I know I'll always enjoy it.
It doesn’t look like this channels been updated for a long time not many podcast on there
I only gave your two star rating because of this not being updated in a long time by the looks of it
Insightful story telling
I am enjoying these stories immensely. Glen's talents as a storyteller shine in these podcasts, and the content is interesting and insightful. There is just the right level of commentary to flesh out the individual stories. Looking forward to listening to future episodes.
