Good melange of everything weird!

Found this show as I was searching to learn more information about the Merchants House in Manhattan. This host presents a podcast that is straightforward, informative, and entertaining, while managing to connect with listeners on a personal and supportive level. Very pleased that I stumbled upon it :)
