Amazing!

How can one woman play 100 characters, young and old, male and female? Play them in such a way that you come to know them, to care about them, and even fall in love with them (well, most of them)? And how can one podcast take on love, sex, and climate change (plus about 100 other social issues), and still manage to be funny, beautiful, and make you cry? This podcast is addictive, mesmerizing, and somehow fills you with compassion, for yourself, and for others, people who are both like you and as unlike you as possible.
