Incredible

The most fascinating, moving, comprehensive and compelling podcast. Remarkable. Absolutely loved it.

Very Moving

The best podcast I’ve ever listened to. It begins as one thing and ends as something completely different.
A story told with truth and compassion. How sad, though, that John was unable to see how many people held him in such high regard.

5*

One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to. Loved the way the story was told and definitely did John justice.
Would love to hear an update on Tyler, was the gold ever found? How is Mary Grace doing?
