753: What We’ve Got Here is Failure to Communicate
Getting the point across — or trying to, anyway.
628: In the Shadow of the City
Stories that take place on the edge of civilization, just out of sight.
752: An Invitation to Tea
A man who was imprisoned for 14 years in Guantanamo Bay, without charges, gets out and issues an invitation to all the people who kept him there. Amazingly, three of them agree to talk.
751: Audience of One
In a world where a virus spreads across the country and most people are not going to movie theaters, we bring the movies to you.
750: The Ferryman
Stories about getting from Point A to Point B—with expert assistance.
749: My Bad
An hour devoted to embarrassing stories. They’re not always just little moments – funny, daily stuff that we laugh about later. Some can change you for the rest of your life.
The first podcast I ever listened to. I have since tried to find other as good, but never have. I listen every week without fail.
I cannot speak highly enough of this podcast.
