Well done WPM!
Short but interesting stories that you can listen to on a drive to work. I really like the way they interlace music with the stories to set tone.
Always interesting and beautifully crafted!
This is such a terrific show- each production is individual and seems lovingly crafted. Hope it keeps coming and thanks to the production people AND the people they intervie.
I really enjoyed the first two episodes of this new podcast. I like its shorter format, the production values are very good and the stories are compelling. Looking forward to more!
