This was a fantastic listening experience. It is obvious that a great deal of love, affection, and attention to detail went into the creation of this podcast. Between the editing, the host, and the sheer breadth and quality of interviews, this podcast sets a new bar for what this form can accomplish.
As a side note, I rarely get emotional listening to podcasts, but I found myself alternately laughing out load or on the verge of tears as the podcast progressed. In my view, this show blended craftsmanship and genuine empathy in a way that grabbed my attention and would not let me go.
