AMAZING.

I LOVE this show! It’s funny, it’s endearing, it’s wildly clever. Found through the many “The Memory Palace” recommendations (my absolute FAVORITE show), and am still playing catch-up on episodes. Just finished “Atsuko-Bagpipes” from 10/19/2021 (today is 01/14/2022) and had to write a review. This episode in particular made me laugh, and then cry, and then laugh again (“a…cat?” “I’m sorry, what did you just”—-BAGPIPES IMMEDIATELY INTERRUPT)…I especially loved the bagpipes playing at the end. I’m crying again because of it, because when bagpipes are played, they “make you feel”, and I have so many memories attached to the sound. I’m grateful to you all for the wonderful and hard work you do, and am super appreciative of this show. I’m truly sad that I’m almost caught up to current episodes, but I look forward to many more episodes in the future!
