Fantastic

Just so cool. The episodes from the 1930’s are like entering an auditory museum. And the contemporary episodes (2018 & 2019) have a really eclectic mix of music. Probably 2/3 of which I’ve never heard before, but I really appreciate the wide variety. What an excellent project. My favorite recent podcast discovery, thanks to being featured on The Browser newsletter.

Immersed in a bygone era

I really love listening to these podcasts. It’s like opening a bottle found on the beach, and finding a legible 100 year-old note inside! Thank you!
