Listen to this!
Can't wait for the next episode. You don't have to live in Baltimore to enjoy this - the host's voice is smooth and enjoyable, and the stories sound fresh and new.
You'll Be Charmed, I'm Sure.
You'll fall in love this informative, entertaining podcast as it takes a deep dive into the subjects and characters that make up the lifeblood and "charm" of one of America's signature cities. The listener is guided around the city by an inquisitive and engaging host as she highlights the good stuff you don't see, and don't know to look for, as a tourist. The good stuff only the locals can tell you about.
You Don’t Have To Be From Baltimore To Love This
Two episodes in and I am already hooked. Producer/Host Stacia Brown moves so skillfully between fascinating local histories and grand, sweeping themes that she makes Baltimore into an allegory for America. Highly recommended.
