All right all right

Next time I go for a drive, I would have this podcast cued up inside.

That way- I could listen to the podcast... AND drive a Lincoln

More please!

You know something is very good when you want more and hate for it to end. So Dramatic is engaging, entertaining and informative in such a creative way. If you are curious about unique artists, their drama, and what makes them tick, this podcast is a complete joy ride.

So Enjoyable

So Dramatic personalizes some of history’s most dramatic characters. This is a really fun look at the artist behind the art and it tells their stories in a really relatable way. I look forward to learning about each artist and I hope there are more seasons to come!
