I absolutely LOVE this podcast. The stories are all very different but equally compelling and interesting. I’ve even downloaded the app to go back to listen to episodes in their archive. I look forward to the new weeks where new episodes come out. A great podcast for someone looking to learn more about the world and other people via great storytelling.
