Customer ReviewsSee All
We all love stories, and that’s what makes this podcast so great. Give it a listen!
I love history, cultural glances, this is something new. A completely different approach to categorizing, looking, and detailing out stories. To oral traditions to the song, You are my Sunshine. Just a wonderful approach.
I listen to a lot of podcasts. I prefer ones that tell a story, whether it’s historical, mythological, or fictional or non fiction. This podcast is about people and subjects no one would have ever been introduced to except through this podcast. I enjoy the way Steve leads the interviews but let’s the subjects tell the story. I definitely recommend this one.
