Just brilliant

This is everything a podcast should be. It goes outside what you expect to hear on mainstream media, and takes you so deep and close into a person's life that you almost feel you are surrounded by them. Fascinating examples of "different" lives that paradoxically show us how much we all have in common. By the end of each podcast you know the person. And you have found out more about the life you are not living, which is the most precious thing. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Addictive listening .... I love the fact that each podcast stands alone as a fascinating glimpse into a life one could never imagine........ and yet in each one I have found myself identifying with something in each one of these people's experiences and desires. That is what makes this series so compelling, finding some unexpected response or realisation of my own.
Podcasts have come of age with this series.
