773: The Longest Distance Between Two Points
Getting from A to B via Z.
672: No Fair!
Stories of very small injustices and also one very big one.
772: The Kids' Table
Kids navigating hairy situations all on their own, with no help from grown-ups.
771: The Parents Step In
Government isn’t doing much to prevent school shootings. So parents are jumping in: parents whose kids have died in mass shootings, in the wake of each shooting. They take practical, effective action — and they get results.
770: My Lying Eyes
People staring squarely at the truth, and still finding it hard to believe what they’re seeing.
769: The Reluctant Explorer
A man finds himself thrust into a new world he didn’t necessarily ask to visit. He takes a look around.
My type of show
My new life goal is to be on this immersive , exciting and lighthearted podcast. The stories are jaw dropping and hilarious. I await every episode with anticipation and I love the latest episode with referencing to ‘Leprechaun’
Look forward to this podcast every week
