What an amazing new find
Fantastic and introspective. I love it! The best new podcast of the year.
A fun ride
This has been surprisingly unique and interesting. The podcasts perspective of hearing life from other random peoples point of view makes you kind of reflect on how you live your own life.
The name is kinda lame but...
Is "outsider journalism" a thing? Because I think that's an appropriate way to describe this. The host seems like a normal guy trying to understand other people. It's casual and unpretentious.
