This speaks to my heart

I adore this podcast. And I adore Cape Cod. I don’t use the word “adore” lightly. There is something wild and so very natural about the Cape and these short essays about this wonderful place make me yearn to be there full time. I hope these stories continue. Thank you for this podcast that speaks to my heart.
