Intimate & Geniune
This is show that I've longed to exist - it's incredible to hear stories of true emotion and connection that don't sound cheesy or forced. The exploration of human connection in this format that blends doc style seemlessly into fiction feels fresh, unusual and charming all at once. Will recommend to all!
CBC has knocked it out of the park with this one. This is a beautifully crafted podcast. I've listened to the preview and the first two episodes. Can't wait to hear more! Haven't enjoyed a podcast like this since WireTap.
Love Love Me
Just gorged on the first two episodes like a delicious treat. I'm obsessed with this show now.
