Great, but the hosts get on my nerves
I may be impatient, but i skip past the bollshipt commentary at the beginning. shut up!!!
Slater/ Von Trapp
child (Von Trapp), and especially the hope to be wise, brave and gentle in my own life (Slater). I find myself hoping Ms. Slater knew of her gift for writing. That, even without critical acclaim, it brought her great satisfaction, such as I receive from my own creative work. She probably never imagined that 60 years hence her voice would reach generations beyond her own, to connect with the "housewives" of the 21st century. I listen to her essay and wish I could invite her for tea, and at the same time feel as though I just did.
blast from the past
The 50's were about 30 years before my time, but I can still appreciate these little windows into history. Most podcasts just talk about the past but with this one you can hear it for yourself. Really interesting.
