Pretty good!

I am sucked in to this podcast, when I first started listening to this I thought it would be completely different than what it ended up to be. But still an amazing podcast, definitely give it a listen!

Binge this podcast!

S-Town is fantastic. Lou from Beme News recommended this, and I’m so glad. John is quite the character. I’m from Alberta, Canada, and the story telling and accents and characters are so intriguing. It’s 1 AM and I’ve got to work tomorrow but I’ve got episode VI to listen to!

Deep and unexpected

I almost stopped listening to this podcast half way through the first episode. Thank goodness I didn’t. Maybe one of the best stories I have ever heard. So artfully told. Deep and unexpected. Really incredible and fascinating, I loved it.
