Adam

Love them all the episodes specially the multi ones

Elena Sarakali ,

Stop the Episodes 1, 2,3,4,5.

I can’t stand that Adam! I want to listen to a 30 or 40 minute episode and not have to come back time after time to listen to the other episodes! By the time I listen to part 1,2,3 or 4 ?
I’ve already forgotten what that show was! What ever possessed you to do that? Thanks !
