Customer Reviews

At last, one of our favorite PHC monologues...

What a pleasure to be able to at last archive the weekly news coming out of Lake Wobegon. We look forwarde to visiting and revisiting with the all the folks we have come to know from our many years of listening to PHC. Having the episodes on our laptop will help make the miles melt away on trips between our home and our childrens' homes, as Garrison takes us back to the "quiet little town" he grew up in. Thanks for finally making the news availiable as podcasts!

The best part of a great show...

I was tempted to give this four stars instead of five as encouragement to give us the entire weekly show, rather than just Lake Wobegon. But I couldn't do it. Even this snippet of a fantastic show deserves fives stars in it's own right. For those of us familiar with Northern Minnesota/North Dakota small town life, this is better than a trip through the nostalgic sepia-tone photo albums of our parents and grandparents. Those memories live and breathe again thanks to Garrison. It's sometimes funny, sometimes melancholy. But it's always comforting and hopeful. It's a little trip home without the troubles and impositions of relatives.
