Annie is great and so is No Chill
It's a funny, insightful, and well-produced podcast. I enjoy it.
Wonderfully produced, surprisingly chill, calming podcast
Love it! Burlington is small enough a town where I can see who is a guest on the newest episode and go "oh yeah, that person. I've seen him/her at city market"
A Pleasurable Listening Experience!
Well-produced, with digestible-length episodes and a variety of interesting guests from the small cosmopolitan city of Burlington, VT. You don't have to be a Vermonter to find Annie's POV and guests engaging - in a time when every jerk with a mic can start a rambling, unfocused podcast, this is a beacon of clarity and perspective. Its simple, straightforward and earnest approach means I'm always eager to hit "play" when a new episode is released.
