Great Podcast! Keeps you wanting more!

Stories you may have heard before, but more in-depth. Presentation of the stories makes you want to listen to the whole story without pausing. I drive a route, so I spend a lot of time in my car. This podcast keeps me company on the long drives. Thanks to my son-in-law for telling me about this podcast!

I'm always happy when a new one comes out

This is by far my favorite podcast. This show releases new episodes on a irregular basis. That might sound like a drawback, but each one is so good that serendipitously finding a new episode in my feed is like finding a $20 bill in an old coat. My favorite episode is called The Derelict. Oh, BTW: there are no ads at all in the podcast or on the website.
