    You love asking questions wherever you go, especially “why.” Why is the world the way that it is? Why doesn’t everyone get along? Why can’t we all just be better people?

    Life moves slow in your sleepy little hometown. You long to escape to someplace else, where life is fast, exciting, maybe even a little dangerous.

Love the podcast but not every narrator

I love when Robbie is the narrator but when anyone else is the the narrator, I turn off the podcast.

Obsessed.

Update: I just listened to the most recent episode. I love Robbie and Virginia but they need to call back Cree Summer for more episodes!!! Her voice filmography is out of this world so it’s wonderful to hear her doing this podcast!

I’ve been truly enjoying this podcast. I love the concept. Only on season 2 but the people who they choice to spotlight have been so interesting. Sometimes I want to just skip to the end and figure out who it is but I contain myself. Looking forward to what/who is to come!

I’d REALLY like to listen to this podcast but i can’t afford it. I listen to imagine life family but that is just not enough. Please make this wonderful podcast free. I listened to one episode and I am obsessed. But please make it free!😑😑
