Dolly Dolly Dolly

As a big Dolly fan, I loved how this podcast involved her directly and expanded on so many aspects of her life and public perception. I recommend it to Dolly fans and those who may not know as much about her (so everyone).

Best podcast I’ve ever heard

I can’t tell you how much I love this podcast and Dolly Parton. I literally hang on every word. I’m sure I will listen to it over and over again.

A little disappointed

A lot of assumptions were made about Dolly and her life. After interviewing Dolly for two years you barely get to hear her speak. I appreciate this podcast but the hosts seemed to be looking too deep into certain topics and reaching for things that weren’t there.
