Big fan

Big fan of all the Grim and Mild podcast. Episode 1 of G&M Presents didn’t disappoint. Looking forward to the next ones.

American Sideshow

Excellent program very well researched. I did myself a great service by listening to this podcast because my knowledge of PT Barnum really only came from the movie The Greatest Showman with Hugh Jackman. This movie was so far off in the historical data. Thank you so much Aaron and keep up the good work I love listening to you.
