Review

Ari continues to be an interesting creator

Magpiefarm ,

Solid and quirky

Just listened to and loved the jail cooking episode. The topics Ari chooses are great; and then he follows through with an amazing, well researched show. Love his editing and the quirky funny tangents that only add to the main line. These are some of my most “look forward” to podcasts.
