Love this podcast!
Very useful :)
Great first episode
Loved the first episode about the kindness of strangers. The second piece was a great story by Davy Rothbart, of the FOUND magazine and podcast.
All the stories were very interesting, touching, and relatable.
I recommend this podcast for anyone who enjoys This American Life or Slack's Work in Progress podcast.
