Helps me appreciate the show more.

I’m only a few episodes in and I love how it’s showing me the layers in the show. I totally hadn’t noticed all of the layers in the show and the literary devices.

It’s a new podcast so I think they’re still hitting their stride in quality etc which is why I haven’t given them 5 stars but I’m sure they’ll get it soon!
