Well-seasoned variety

This clever twist on a variety show is thoughtful and timeless but time-bound, with better organized higher quality than 99% of podcasts. The Rhythm of the Seasons covers every age and stage of life and the full spectrum of emotions accompanying them with faithful respect. Made in Los Angeles, talent is as open-minded, progressive, creative and professional, with authentic conversations as intimate and universal as love can be. Add terrific radio plays, original music, and literary fiction dramatized with flair, and you have a sensual feast. Although the series has concluded, at least now it may be binged…perfect for listening on long trips or (as was the case when the show premiered during the Covid-19 pandemic) while in quarantine.
