Interesting & soothing

I’m in the US and haven’t had accessibility issues. I’ve enjoyed hearing about these different places, love the nature sounds especially, and find it soothing/calming.

Genius

This podcast is truly a work of art…and like art you must spend time with it! Over time it literally opened up in amazing depth and gave me a sense of gratitude!

Can’t access episodes

I like the podcast, but it stinks that nearly all of the episodes can’t be accessed. Kind of pointless to put out a show no one can listen to. 😕
