Damn Interesting, damn right!

When I go to my podcasts I always check to see if there is a new episode from "Damn Interesting". The stories are always interesting(!), and usually off the beaten path so it is rare that it is a topic I have knowledge of, they are well produced and narrated and always leave me yearning for more. Enjoy!

Consistently engaging

DamnInteresting is a fantastic way to learn new ephemera, gain unguessed-at knowledge and fill a useless journey with something fulfilling. Top end.
