perfect to binge

i’m obsessed with this podcast! the idea is so original and makes me feel very nostalgic( prob bc i’m listening in BK during the age of social distancing). Everyone behind this podcast is extremely talented. I’ve been looking for something to listen to while painting and this is perfect. I’ve been hooked for 2 days and I’m already on episode 30😳 It’s made me laugh, cry, & even kind of horny.

Get ready to be hooked!

I love listening to Luke’s adventures when I am going about life, on my way to work or cooking or taking a walk. It’s as if he is my best friend who’s sending me voice recordings to catch up. That’s how genuine and intimate the storytelling and narration of Adam Hurly is. Luke’s stories and his self reflection often makes me cry and laugh out loud while also giving me a lot of thinking points about relationships, friendships, relocating, running away, Berlin, loss of a parent and how to deal with it and much more. Cannot recommend it enough! It has healing powers <3

All the feels

I am on Episode 26 and I am absolutely hooked on these characters! I listen during my commute and I find myself laughing out loud or even sometimes tearing up. Adam is an incredible storyteller with a real gift for engaging his audience. This series will take you on a wild rollercoaster of emotions and you won’t want to get off!
