Great show!

Tack1123 ,

Way too many commercials

Way too many commercials for the length of the episodes. The stories are good but for a 12 minute episode there’s 5 minutes of commercials if you count the beginning and end commercials. I listen while working so I can’t skip commercials every 5 minutes. The worst part is subscribing doesn’t even eliminate the commercials. What a waste of $4 that was.

Amazing and inspiring

I just got into podcasts and tried a few. I’m not into hearing people just talk about their opinions or current events so many were rejected. Then I found this beauty. I love the stories and how much it gets me writing my own again. I love the story tellers and how they relay the stories. I listen to at least one a day and plan on catching up. This is my favorite podcast and I can’t wait to check out their other stuff in the vault.
