Favorite weekly listen!

This is my absolute favorite podcast!!
It’s so well put together and thought out. You can tell the host puts his heart into the stories that he talks about each week. Plus who doesn’t love not having to do all the work of finding top stories in the recent news and taking time to scroll different news outlets and read all the articles??! It’s so conveniently put together for me to LISTEN on my time. Thanks for this!! Such a fan 🥰

Best Cure for Homesickness!

I recently found this podcast and I immediately started looking forward to each new episode. It’s about to be 5 years since I moved away from my wonderful birthplace and this helps me so much with my homesickness! It makes me still feel connected to my beloved Homeboldt. Plus I found some amazing new music from the episodes. Keep up the great work!!
