I cried. This is amazing.

Why am I lying in bed at 3am bawling my eyes out? This stunning, moving podcast that’s what.

Mesmerizing - Takes your mind to a whole new place

Been delaying starting on this just cause when I first heard news about a Serial & This American Life collaboration I literally felt like a rare gift was gifted to me. Seriously as an auditory learner all content released by WBEZ.. Is good!

Intriguing protagonist and an interesting glimpse into rural America..
