Love "The Placer Life"
Stoked to have a podcast that has stories about where I live! I love that I know the places that are talked about and it is killer to learn about all the cool people living here. Dig it!
Super interesting podcast! So cool to hear the unique stories of people in the community that I love. I wouldn't have known that an artist who worked on Star Wars lives in Auburn. And that's just one example of what you'll hear. Keep up the great work!
Wow - I couldn't stop listening
Wasn't sure what to expect... but within a minute or two, I was completely sucked in. The storytelling is simply brilliant. If the Cody Michael's story doesn't make you cry, you might be missing a chip. Betty Sampson is a god among women - and I want her to be my grandma. Can't wait to see what else they come up with to feature my home and how much it rocks!
