Couldn’t Stop Listening

This podcast is incredible! It taught me a lot. Gave me a taste of Southern culture, demonstrated the beautiful intricacy of life and all its torture and grace, but I think most of all, I learnt the importance of listening to both sides of a story. You learn as a kid that there is two sides to every story, but often times we cling to one as right and the other as wrong. The situation with Tyler and Rita really showed me the importance of listening to both sides. Initially I only really heard Tyler’s side but then hearing Rita’s I saw things from her perspective as well. Incredibly well done!
