I LOVE IT

listened to this at work. Mostly 5 hours of it. Didn’t take my air pods out 😂 best podcast I’ve heard honestly. They should make a movie. Or a tv show. Thanks

Brilliant and tragic

I fell in love with John and had thoughts of contacting him to fill the space Reed May have left vacant. I’m grateful for having met him through this podcast, getting a glimpse of his world, and a number of laughs out loud.
