The Best podcast I’ve ever found.

I absolutely love your podcast, I’ve been a listener for years. It’s the best I’ve ever heard. Great story telling and the subtle audio in the background? Swoon. I also love that you avoid advertising, it truly ruins the podcast experience for me.

I hope you all are able to keep putting out quality content!

Best story telling team out there

The one thing I listen to before going to bed and it helps me sleep like a baby. Each story is unique and interesting. These are just some people trying to share their stories. If you can please help them out by going to dam.mn/donate

Refreshingly good audio content

Tells interesting, obscure stories in an entertaining way. No disruptive commercials, useful but Minsk sound effects. It seems to be a love letter to humanity from a small, talented team. Recommended!
