Rolf Gustavson ,

What a journey

This is by far the best podcast series I’ve ever heard. The immersive storytelling, stunning audio and beautiful music created a completely enchanting experience that brought me to tears. My most sincerest thanks to all of you that created Blockbuster.

PS. I was especially happy for giving the music of John Williams such an integral part of the story. What would movies be without music, right?

All the best!
