The Heat Stroke Podcast provides an outlet to distract, entertain, educate, inform, provide laughter and perhaps even tears, and overall acts to elevate the podcast medium. Christopher Ferman has bizarre and a little bit crazy life stories and James Fryer’s sarcasm leave you laughing out loud.
Many of Christopher’s stories are from his years living in Los Angels. James dry humor is flavored with his growing up in New York and other cites on the East Coast.
It is occasionally deep, but broad all at once. I enjoy listening to this weekly podcast, especially if you are from Phoenix, or Los Angeles. This podcast is a guaranteed laugh out loud every single episode show.
