I love this

I love this podcast. Heartwarming and sweet, this pod puts a smile on your face. Kitty does a great job! We all need to just be quiet more often and listen to our elders talk!

Just too sweet

I love these stories. Do often they go untold. Love!

So authentic and genuine.

Kitty has a natural knack for storytelling and guiding these stories so authentically. I love this podcast and its intention to tell stories we all hope to preserve from our own grandparents and elders. This is perfect if you’re looking for a listen to hear really personal stories and make you feel “at home.”
