  4. I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but I just wanted to say that Episode 1 almost made me cry (happy tears). My grandma passed away 3 years ago and all the stories reminded me so much of afternoons at her house and talking about "the good old days." Thank you for sharing G-Mac with us!! :)

  5. I am so impressed! This is NPR quality podcasting and the storytelling is awesome. I wish the kids segment was 40 hours long.

  6. The monkey story at the end was amazing. And I loved the Ukraine bit. I remember reading that when you wrote it a few years ago. It's my favorite travel post you've ever done. I am so happy you guys are doing Strangerville.

  7. Tell Matt to figure out how to get your podcast onto the Stitcher Radio app. I suspect filling out this form will get you somewhere: https://www.stitcher.com/content-providers. I don't have Apple products so I use Stitcher to listen to all my podcasts.

  10. Lee must be in Hawaii - because otherwise his lack of comments is incredibly disturbing . . . .

    1. Two things: ONE, I'm unhappy that nobody was missing me, lately (I've just gotten WAY behind in my blog-READING), and TWO, Lee's been hanging out over at my blog (Gasp!)... he's scheduled to go to Hawaii sometime very soon (he'd commented "two weeks" on 3/14).

      Please don't shoot the messenger!

  14. "I'm getting tired. When will this stooooooop?" <3

    And Meg's portion was incredibly depressing to me. You both apologized profusely for the Kiev portion, but am I the only one depressed by Meg's experience?
