PrettyMinniee ,

Wonderfully comforting

This is truly a one-of-a-kind podcast that not only entertains listeners, but provides sound advice on how to tackle everyday life and relationships. I’m not kidding when I say that I feel like I’ve sat through a therapy session after listening to this podcast. It’s insane, yet wonderfully comforting, how relatable all of the callers’ stories are. It’s poetic in that way… by showing us that no matter how different we are from one another, we all experience life and its struggles. Truly, thank you for this podcast!

Rusty Chill ,

Utterly adorable, frequently moving, consistently wise, and remarkably funny

The title says it pretty well. This show rewards close attention while also being gentle enough to help me fall asleep on anxious nights.

Kent(random string) ,

Brilliantly clever

A wonderful trip into the world of the liminal, cleverly developed and delightfully presented. HRO takes a novel, but simple idea and develops it fascinatingly. I look forward to snatching a few minutes to listen to this amazing podcast whenever I can. I look forward to whatever they do next!
