Great podcast

Fascinating , in tense, human stories. Fear of what might come and the realization that life goes on so be ready for that.

Highly Recommended

I loved Finding Richard Simmons and the new Y2K episodes are even better. Amazing show.

Thought provoking

Engaging and entertaining. Dan, the presenter, has a voice like treacle.

Is it invasive? Yes, but it’s an investigation. We’re taken on a journey, it makes the listener question why they’re listening, their own motives.
