Just what I needed
I had been hearing Brett Stewart talk about this project for a really long time on his other shows. So happy he finished it! Totally worth the wait. Really well produced, very insightful, and some great interviews. I wish it was longer, even! Maybe he'll do another city or do more in Chicago one day.
