  • Love it!

    I listen to some podcasts that have an interviewer-interviewee setup but I love that this is just the person telling their story.

  • What happened to this show?

    It used to be so captivating. Now it seems that the stories are so drawn out and most (not all) are told by what seem to be people who just keep making extremely poor choices over and over.
