Customer Reviews

Enjoyed until repeats started & new narrator

The stories are interesting and inspirational. Loved the angle of not revealing the name until the end. Definitely appreciate having some short length podcasts to enjoy that fit well into my available timeframes. Unfortunately, must now unsubscribe the more and more the Hollywood elitist and ill informed narrator Jeffrey Wright comments against the country publicly.

I really love this show!

This show is really fun and reminds of listening to Paul Harvey’s The Rest of the Story with my dad when I was a kid. Great writing, great talent (Jeffrey Wright!!), and the perfect length make these inspiring stories truly bingeable.

Compelling biographies, exceptional storytelling

Concise and engaging, each episode is a short but inspiring journey into some of our greatest thinkers and doers. I feel like I’ve watched an inspiring biopic after listening- a great way to energize and recharge your own passions!
