Great Stories

I love this podcast. The stories shared from people who have lived long lives are treasures. The first season is fabulous. Note: the mixing of the interviews is in one audio channel, which makes it hard to hear. If you're listening on an iPhone, go to Accessibility settings and throw the audio to the right channel and the static is gone. Maybe season 2 will be mixed in stereo. I love the content so much that the audio mixing doesn't detract from the podcast.

Excellent podcast

This podcast digs deep and shares some great insights on life. It's also a good reminder that everyone has a story to tell. Can't wait to see what next season has in store!
