An Incredible Fun Time

Come to listen, come to learn, have fun in the telling. Aaron’s vision here is a fun wedge of information and entertainment you would be a dummy to miss.

So glad I found this show

Where do I start? Aaron, the host, has such a love and passion for theater that you can FEEL through his show. He brings surprise topics to his guest and listeners that are truly fascinating and such a pleasure to dig into. As someone who has a history podcast myself, I first listened to check it out” and very quickly found myself binging for hours. Though I enjoy theater, one doesn’t need to be a theater major to understand and enjoy this show!

Grandma loves it, too. ,

Fun theatre history

Wow, I learned a lot while being thoroughly entertained. The host and guest seem to have great chemistry, and covered a whole lot of ground.
