Something different!

I needed something different and this was the search result! I love short stories, history, old time radio and biographies. This is an awesome way to present and enjoy all of them! Such a great podcast I’m so glad I found. Thanks!!!

Super Interesting

This podcast is really great at getting a look into things I would have never really thought about before. I heavily enjoyed their Prison Guards episode. It felt real and raw, but the sound effects and transitions made it super entertaining and I didn’t feel like it dragged on too long. The information felt legitimate, and after looking into the subject after hearing the episode, everything matched up. This podcast definitely has a new listener, I’m really happy I was introduced to it!
