Best Ever!

I’m addicted to this incredible podcast. LeVar Burton has been a part of my life since Reading Rainbow...Roots...Star Trek...and these intriguing short stories. His narrative is immersive and brings each character alive. Some of the subject matter can be enchanting...some disturbing...But always leaving a lasting impression. I think about these podcasts long after they have concluded. I have been fortunate to meet LeVar in person and he is completely gracious and warm. I can’t recommend this series enough. Well done! Can’t wait for the next season. And make sure you don’t miss his Live Reads! Will buy tickets to attend every time and enjoy his on stage interview with the author, reading and featuring a local live musician in accompaniment. I was fortunate enough to see LeVar with Nisi Shawl and Gretchen Yanover in Seattle.
