Amazing, Informative, and Utterly Unpredictable
Tom's podcasts are incredible. He somehow gets the most unique scoops on his various travels, and always posts a great story. When I can't catch them on NPR, I always make sure to download his latest podcasts here. Don't take my word for it, though; listen for yourself!
Love this show!
Tom's recording style feels so authentic—it makes you feel like you are right there with him and interviewee!
