"This podcast has a very specific sound. Roman's voice is deep and purposeful, it has very little of the scripted spontaneity found in many other narrative podcasts. Even when his producers are brought in for a story, he still takes the lead on the narration. The stories are always fascinating and instead of speeding up to match the pace of your busy life they instead draw you into their world. One motto of the show is "always read the plaque" referring to reading historical markers and other commemorations you might otherwise walk by. This show makes you realize just how there is to know about the seemingly ordinary, and it's definitely one of the greatest podcasts of our time."
