Casey Vejvoda ,

Very great padcast!🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️❤️🤯

I love this podcast! I found it through “Your brain on facts” and I love it! I also love cats too and I was wondering if you could do more animal stories? Also I really liked when you read the diary of a insane man I think it was called that. Well I love you podcast😘

A Winner

The reader is excellent. The stories are well-chosen. Even within the limitation of having to use non-copyright texts, most of the stories are well worth a listen.
Best of all, there is no buzz-fuzz, the plague of so many podcasts, in this program.We get no bells, whistles and congratulatory pats on the back. Good job!

Wonderful!

Great voice, short and informative author introductions and the stories selected are worth listening to again and again.
