Five whole stars

Started off with your latest episode with Mr. Wings (my cousin, no brag) and went on from there! Great listen, love Kenosha! I have nothing else to do at work other than listen to podcasts so what better podcast to listen to than one about your city.

Great micro journalism feel

I love local news, deep dives into community, and micro journalism in general. This reminds me of This American Life’s style of reporting and interviewing, but all focused on one town. It’s fascinating to think what exists around you that you may never know about. This show inspires me to be more curious about my own town.
