Brilliant

I loved this podcast. Albeit somewhat strange, Brian and the various interviewees throughout the podcast tell a story of a brilliant, strange man.

Deeply touching story

A profound story sensitively told. Brilliant

Fascinating and bizarre

Even if you know what’s coming, it’s a strange and interesting story, give a little insight into the world of trying to create a podcast, and find a story.
