Top notch

Just a few episodes in and already amazed by these stories from in and around the lakes. Interesting guests and a stellar host and interviewer. Recommended!

City Dwellers ,

What a find!

I stumbled upon this great podcast. Growing up on the great lakes and now living in the city, this podcast is a welcome break from the rat race. Allison shared the stories of those who love and enjoy lake life. Thanks for the mental break and escape to the water virtually.
