Love ya man.

Thank you

The guided breathing. The feeling of nostalgia from having what feels like an old childhood friend reading to me again. It’s everything. You get me through my day.

I would love to hear Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl!

This Makes Me Happy

I love listening to the stories. This podcast has exposed me to stories and authors I would never have read. I have read a couple of the books from authors I heard about through this podcast and have enjoyed them. Thanks for expanding my book world.
