    Do You Like My Little Lie?

    Do You Like My Little Lie?

    It’s the time of year when skeletons come out of the closet. We honor the dead, as we get ready for holidays among the living, where secrets will be spilled, and secrets will be created that will haunt us for years to come. You might describe today’s story as a classic “noir,” if it wasn’t … Continue reading Do You Like My Little Lie? →

Such an incredible story!❤️ makes me so happy you received such love

From the outside looking in ,

People in the review section are shady...

Strangers is a fantastic podcast with excellent story telling. There have been episodes with storylines worthy of being adapted into full length films. Producing podcasts is a challenging gig, and there are so many on the App Store that lack the production quality Leah (I apologize if I’m misspelling your name here) brings to the table. The listeners who left negative reviews are calling the host narcissistic for taking a few episodes to share her own story. C’mon. If you’re not a fan, skip the episodes. There is no need to drag this woman and publicly shame her for being vulnerable. People have so much to complain about when it comes to free content, it’s not even like you’ve spent money to be here. Just don’t listen? Hahah. Long story short, it’s a solid podcast, would highly recommend.

SORRY I meant to say so NOT lame.

I was trying to contradict the ppl on here complaining but messed up my title.

Listen to “falling slowly”. Beautifully told.
