I never review but…

Episode VI of this podcast moved me, it was beautiful. I haven’t listened to the last episode yet but the rest have been amazingly put together, sensitively and thoroughly reported, and I’ve enjoyed the pastiche of a small town in Alabama, but episode VI is something truly beautiful.

Actually I got bored

I listened to the whole thing at the time but I didn’t like it that much and I didn’t think it was that well done. Just thinking back. Central character was a bit of a trip obviously
