California news junkie ,

Here from the beginning

I have loved this podcast from the beginning. First, I enjoyed learning new facts and the great humour. Now, I care about J Keith and Helen so much. Their rapport is truly friendly and kind and they help make a welcoming space for their guests and experts. I love learning about what is interesting to other people, and especially about the deep cuts for a movie or genre of music or style of art. This podcast has expanded my listening and my viewing and my reading experiences. Keep it up! Lorienne (rhymes with orient, Delorean, Julienne, or where Galadriel lives—lothlorien) in Cambria CA.
