Obscure and Fascinating
The fact that these stories are crowd-sourced by the citizens of Nashville is enough to get behind this podcast, BUT then throw in great reporting and production and you have yourself and incredible show!
I am a huge fan of pods like Lore, The Unexplained, and Just a Story, so to find one in the same vein, and about the city where I live!? I am so excited to learn more esoteric knowledge about this city!
Trite and boring. AVOID.
I was rather excited when I heard a promo for this show but WOW does it mislead...
This was the most boring, uninformed and lame podcast of its kind I have ever heard. I will go one step further and say this is THE WORST podcast I have ever heard, PERIOD. I say that having heard many. WOW.
