recently discovered this and i’ve been trying to slow down with the episodes, i really wanna savour this. it is so very tender and funny and somehow really, really human, despite it being interviews with inanimate objects. i think i’ve found my dream podcast

Touching and funny stories

Oddly faschinating stories. Interesting trivia delivered in a way that i’d never have expected to be so cool! It’s a funny sideways way to hear the stories from the objects, and I’m often giggling to myself while still being touched when I hear them. Great podcast that I would not have looked for! Thanks to Radiotopia!!
