A welcome slice of Tucson and SE Arizona!
I left Arizona in 2000 (where I'd lived for almost 12 years) to tend to my mom back in CA, who had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. With the exception of a 3 day visit in 2005 when I was newly pregnant, I haven't been back since. Despite that, Tucson has been in my heart and mind without skipping a beat, and now I can *really* stay connected to this mythical place with Arizona Spotlight. Great stories, thoughtful interviews, and a true sense of place no matter the topic. Thank you Mark and crew for producing such a great show for your listeners. I wish I could force everyone I know listen, they don't know what they're missing!
Great podcast, though there are some boring episodes.
Great quality, mark does a great job finding interesting things to talk about. I would recommend it to others. I can’t always listen to it because some of the things don’t interest me, but I always come back and find great episodes even after a long absence. Thanks
