Fantastic

Only discovered the show a couple months back and have already listened to 80+ episodes. Host style is great, he sticks to the facts but brings a contagious level of enthusiasm for the subject matter as to create a compelling narrative. Not over produced but clear that he puts a lot of effort into the planning and presentation of each episode.

I’ll never forget him saying that a review mentioned that is helped the listener overcome his insomnia. While it could be interpreted as a backhanded complement, I can relate, it’s so relaxing to listen too. It’s helped me overcome more than a few restless nights.

My long winded way of saying keep up the great work.
