Real People

I love how you, through stories, pull back the curtain on public figures so we get to know them on a personal level.

Better Than Any Sitcom

Kent Hance (I know him as Chancellor Hance from Texas Tech where my son attended) is absolutely hilarious.I laugh more listening to 30 minutes of his podcast than I do from any of the silly sitcoms on TV and I gain more wisdom than I do from watching ANYTHING on TV. He is a true Texas treasure and anybody from Texas will recognize the elements of his stories. Those so unfortunate to be from somewhere other than Texas will certainly see why we love it here so much.
