Excellent first episode!
As with everything radiotopia, this first episode is awesome. Beautiful sound design. Clear story. I'm intrigued by the thematic idea with just a few episodes on a topic. Hope the rest are just as good as the first!
What an exciting idea
I'm so excited for this podcast. I mean..what a concept. Radiotopia as a curator of different types of podcasts couldn't be better.
Great concept, great first series!
I'm so excited that Radiotopia is moving this concept forward. The first podcast series is a great concept and really delivers. Thanks!
