Beautiful & Raw

I feel so moved by this entire series. The way that these complex characters are revealed. These real people. Thank you for sharing this piece of humanity. Absolutely inspired by this thoughtful & carefully constructed storytelling. And, of course, in awe of John B.

This one will stay with you

Months after finishing this series, I continue to think about the enigma of John B. The reporting is excellent, the narration is well done... probably the best series I’ve ever listened to.
