A Hidden Treasure

I heard an interview on Dennis Prager podcast with Lee Habeeb a month ago. I gave Our American Stories a try, then I went back to February 2021 (possibly when it started), and now am addicted to these stories. So well done and so diverse in subject matter. Highly recommend this to anyone and everyone.

Thank you Lee Habeeb!
