This is the best podcast out today. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and the stories will bring up a myriad of emotions. The stories are so poignant and personal! I’m so grateful to have this podcast in my life and can’t wait for the next episode!!!
Funny and moving — can’t get enough!
I’m 5 episodes into the first season and each episode has been sweet, funny, moving, and engrossing. If you’re a fan of The Moth, Snap Judgment, or This American Life, add this to your list. Clearly there is a lot of storytelling talent in DC!
New take on storytelling!
Love the stories but also the interviews afterward so you can hear more detail and process. Very cool.
