Fascinating

It’s interesting what people are willing to divulge when they can remain anonymous. I’m starting from the beginning on what’s available on i-tunes and there were a couple doozies. I admire Chris’ ability not to judge. Can’t say I’m that open minded...

OMG!!

My first episode was the “laugh” episode, Puppet Master and I had to pull over towards the end of it. First, what a great idea for a show. It just goes to show that plain old conversations have so much life. Great podcast!

A Good One is Rare

The first episode I listened to was great-the woman was open, honest and ready to talk. Most of the ones since then have been people constantly laughing in order to avoid talking, taking 10 minutes with filler words to express a 10 second point, being distracted by what's around them ("I saw a squirrel!" Then 10 minutes about the squirrel.) I can't take it anymore.
