Amazing

So happy to have heard about this podcast. I own and have been cottaging in Barry’s Bay since 1968 so to listen to these great shows is amazing. As a podcast listener this one is very well done. 👏🏻

Reminiscent

I grew up in Barry’s Bay and listening to his podcast sure brings me back home. Whenever I’m feeling homesick I play a few episodes.
