Esoteric, personal, charming.
Listening to this podcast gives a real sense for who the producer is. It has an intimate quality to it that's endearing, almost in a Mr. Rogers kind of way. I keep coming back to hear what's going on in the neighborhood as told by Andy Moore.
A Great Listen
My husband and I absolutely love Andy’s soothing voice and interesting topics! Recently during a power outage, I was lucky to discover some previously downloaded episodes on my phone. Where we live there isn’t cell reception, if there’s no power -there’s no heat, no internet. We cuddled up in the candlelight, winds howling, listening to Andy’s Treasure Trove! It’ll be something we remember forever.
Charming , Highly recommended
I find this whole series so gentle and delightful, with a “respectful of the listener” kind of intelligence and wry humor. Sort of like going into an antique store with a well informed witty friend who points out this and that and adds amusing stories about each. Small treasures... but all the more appreciated for it. Highly recommended
