  • So deeply human

    This show really captures something so emotional, so deeply human. I started listening on a whim and I absolutely devoured the first 3 episodes back to back. I got laid off in 2009 and I always assumed I was weird for much it destroyed me. This show puts so much in perspective and I think even healed a little part of me from long ago. I found this show so cathartic, so helpful in peeling back the layers of this world we live in. Thank you! Can’t wait to hear more!
