This Nighmare is Good

I have had some crazy work experiences in my life so this podcase simultaneously makes me feel happy that my experiences aren't as terrible as these stories, and makes me want to throat-punch the people who ARE the actual nighmare-causing agents in each story. Thanks for the stories, thanks for making the stories clean, and thanks for helping me be aware of "crazy" people.

A must listen podcast ! Excellent and we all identify somehow

This is a must listen podcast.
We have all worked with one or some of the people in the experiences in this podcast.
It is good to hear the experiences of others and continue to be aware of who we just might be working with ....
