A gem.

This podcast is a testament to the power of independent podcasters telling meaningful stories. It is well written and wonderfully narrated. The storytelling highlights the complexity of the family with refreshing honor and honesty.

No more singing!

Could have been a lot better without erupting into song every episode. Also in every episode she brings up something and then says “but we’ll save that story for a later episode”... half of these things were never brought up again.
