I DIG IT

Really dug this. Producation and voice acting are pretty high quality. The stories are also quite compelling. It is, in my own words, certifiably dope!

Like a really good audiobook

Haven’t made it through the whole series yet, but this is a really interesting look at local history! Intro theme is super catchy too.
