Wow, if you haven’t listened yet. Please do.

This podcast was recommended to me by a friend who claimed it was the best she has ever listened to. That her and her friends listened years ago and still discuss it. I am now in her club. An amazingly done, thoughtfully put together story of a man we all wish we could know more about. This is a story is going to be worth listening to again

A little disappointed

This podcast was recommended to me but I’m confused.. I felt like I kept listening for it to come together and make sense. Just feel disappointed and feel like it was a waste of time.. there is no real ending or answers to anything. It’s just all over the place.

I just gotta say

The guy interviewed in chapter 1 is the best thing I’ve listened to in years, I know he’s talking about something serious but his voice has got ALOT of personality and it’s extremely entertaining to listen to.
