  • Great season

    I’ve really enjoyed the latest season, especially how they tackle larger topics but also bring it back in to a Philly perspective. Even if you don’t live in Philly, though, these stories and histories are worth a listen.

  • Dry. The episodes are too short to do any of the topics justice, and they are further broken up into segments.
