"Podcast Meander" is the semi-fictional travelogue of Dan Leone, a traumatized musician who abruptly left his hometown and started driving west - fleeing from something. The show documents his frantic travels, the people he interviews along the way, and the slow reveal of what he's truly running away from. Featuring all-original music.

Wonderful and raw and creative and cool. It could do with slightly less echoey vocal manipulation but otherwise perfect.
Dan is a wonderfully likable and relatable host! His show navigates masterfully between travel logue, interviews, and scripted portions to create a unique listening experience. Great sound design. Great music. I recommend to anyone who enjoys politics, psyhology, or audio drama!
I found out about this podcast from the Earbuds Podcast Collective. While this isn't my normal cup of tea, I thought it was extremely interresting blend of fiction and non-fiction
