Uncle Ulty ,

Fascinating Interviews

Listening to this podcast, I've found myself having quite a few 'driveway moments,' where I parked the car at home not willing to get out because I wanted to hear the end of the guest's story. Jesse is a fantastic host and always keeps the energy up and the conversation moving.

CornyPorn ,

Our culture shall survive.

This is a great way to learn more about the culture I hold so dear to my heart.
Keep it up my friends, keep it up.

DALinMA ,

Good Guests

I learn a lot with every episode. Keep those great guests coming! Lise Pelletier was particularly interesting. I’m half Québécois and half Acadian. I didn’t know much about that Acadian side until the episode with Lise.
