Favorite Podcast!!

I’ve listened to every episode on this podcast and I absolutely love it!! I can’t believe some of the stories I’ve heard. Some make me laugh, others make me cry and some leave me in disbelief!! Ben is an amazing host who asks all the right questions!! My favorite episode is the one where a girl manages to graduate college without doing the work. I think it was an episode numbered in the 60’s. Keep the awesome shows coming, I look forward to each new episode!!

LOVE

Love this podcast- I listen to a lot and it is one of my favorites. I love the range and variety of topics and I think Ben, the host, is spectacular at what he does. He asks thoughtful and insightful questions, is really quite funny, and really seeks to connect with the people he has on the podcast- you can tell he really genuinely cares about the folks on there.
