Not sure who thought it was a good idea to put loud background music/noise behind the entire episode but it sounds absolutely awful. Loved the concept of this show but can’t get through it.
Fascinated & Educated
Great pod. Fascinating to learn about these stories and love the comedic take on the ridiculousness of it all!
This is such a great idea for a podcast - and Nick and his team are so funny! Makes my commute fly by.
