A refreshing surprise

I am not a podcast aficionado, but found this particular podcast well-produced and easy to listen to. I especially like the notes, or explanations given before some of the stories helping to convey details that some readers (like myself) may not understand or be familiar with. The narrator has a distinctive voice and reads well with a pleasant cadence. The added sound effects and music are not overly done and accentuate the stories well. Overall, listening to this podcast has been entertaining and pleasurable.
