Wonderful

I think this podcast is perfectly charming. The stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder events, the history, the travel logs are all perfectly charming. The one where she had her disrespectful nephew who didn’t pay attention to what she was saying or what was going on was horrible and I worry about the host not standing up to him. Otherwise this is perfection.
