Blown Away!

I met Willow in a dinner line at the 2022 Tour de Wyoming. In answering the usual chit-chat questions, she said she produced a podcast out of Laramie, Wyoming. Out of curiosity, I had to listen to an episode. I must say it exceeded my expectations in all ways. Why?

Let’s face it, any wannabe with a microphone can make a podcast, so my expectations weren’t super high.

But the production quality, the music, the narration, the storyline, the moral of the story were all outstanding. Willow is a skilled, insightful storyteller, who holds your attention, creates drama, and makes you think. Can’t wait to catch up on the other “Out There” episodes.

Pioneering

High value, intelligent and long-running pod. Best of its kind. Thank you!

Could be top notch!

The content is usually pretty good stuff, but it’s difficult to listen to the sad sounding host (we’ve compared the tone of voice to Eeyore), along with the long in-breaths. Just minor polishing up could bring this to an easy 5-star!
