Outstanding!

I’ve had this podcast in my earphones at work for three, 10 hour days now and I’m dreading getting to the end, I love it so much. I laugh and cry (yep, at work), and feel so lucky to have these stories in my world. I’ve reflected so much on my own life and experiences because of various telling of ‘strangers’ ...and it’s incredible how much of myself I’m able to find in most others; even the ones who’s lives are so, so different from my own. Our emotional bodies are far more similar than our physical ones.
Thanks to everyone at Strangers for this cathartic show.

Oh Gal, That Sounds Awful! ,

Beautiful

For people like myself, this podcast takes you into the lives of people we would otherwise not have the opportunity or courage to speak to in real life. It's a beautiful reminder that every individual has a story behind them.

This podcast used to be quite valuable. But now it is so pathetic. This reminds me a livejournal account from the early 2000’s. Just an esoteric painfully answering questions no one asked that relate only the lea. Her lonesome woeful dialogues are akin to weak cringe compilations found on YouTube. The sociological rhetoric of corespondent emotional podcasts can be done very well, and this has some memorable episodes, but at this point lea needs a serious adjustment, and maybe help. Maybe others will find value in her new voice, but I’m out.
