Through the eyes of the world

Marvelously captured first-hand account of of an atrocity that MUST never be forgotten. Maurice’s recollections deserve to be archived, because, as he himself fears, this could happen again (and has) in several circumstances. Loved the musical scoring and background, which richly enhanced the saga. Well done Meg!

Authentic, interesting, out of the box

The interviews have been so varied and surprising. The questions that Meg asks bring out the best in the people she interviews. Their answers are so forthcoming. And her followup questions always ask exactly what I would want to ask next. Love the tone of Meg’s voice and I never have a hard time understanding anything she says. Looking forward to the next interview. Keep them coming!

Engaging subject

I listened to “Single, Sixty and Searching” and have never heard the subject discussed before. Meg Robinson asked thoughtful questions that guided the conversation nicely. Both she and the guest have very pleasing voices. I look forward to hearing more of these podcasts on a variety of topics.
