Very different!

A different kind of podcast that explores the life of a very unique man.

Captivating from the jump

I started listening to this on the plane, with little clue as to what it was about. I was drawn in by JBM from the start. I finished it last night and I’m still reeling. The storytelling was superb - you feel like you’re in Alabama with the narrator. A+ job.

Surprise

This is the first time I listened to a podcast that my son recommended and I glad I did.
This is definitely a different type of story that transforms your perspective of humanity. Very well done. I loved the music and lyrics.
