Great storytelling

Makes me think you should interview the other 2 great podcast storytellers paul and Sasha from comedic, fictional, serial podcast Community News” would love to hear you all together.

Always enjoyable

Consistently great storytelling. I’m always glad to see a new episode dropped because I know it’ll be a good show.

Good Show, but

Real quality show, good editing. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get past the lisp from the host.
