Favorite Podcast

This podcast is second only to Serial on my list of best all time. They go in depth on so many of the issues that I thought about my city but had never put in words. Very relevant to more than just Clevelanders. I keep checking back to see if there are more episodes but they haven’t produced one since March—hence me writing this. I hope they get back into it. Thanks Amy and George for your great contributions to Northeaest Ohio and afar!
