Not a big fan

I am not usually a fan of biographies

This is the funnest guessing game, even if you’re not into biographies. The hosts do a fantastic job and the production value is fabulous. I can’t get enough!
I love the regular hosts as well as the incredibly moving and powerful narration by guest Hill Harper.
