Give it a listen!

You’re gunna like the way it sounds. I guarantee it.

THIS!

Love it when a host with a comfortable vibe and a pleasant voice just tells the story. No sound effects or annoying character voices or bantering with another host like they’re doing a morning show on the radio. None of it. Just the story. 👍

Fafave ,

Great podcast!

Interesting topics, well presented, great formatting and overall an enjoyable podcast.
