Great for concentration

The background noise helps me focus. And it’s pretty cool to be “transported” to work in London for a bit. Thanks for posting these.

Exactly what I was looking for

You’d be surprised how hard it is to find podcasts like this. Just clean, simple recordings of the white noise of every day life. Thanks for doing these. I’ll be looking forward to more.
