  1. Thanks for plugging SURJ into the intro! Hell yeah!

  2. ‘Hope’ is definitively one of the best episodes released in 2016. The clip of the speech at the end after Mara’s story, paired with Set Me Free, was so powerful and moving. I’ve struggled with finding any light in the darkness over the last few weeks, and this episode has lifted my spirits. Thank you.

  3. Love 98% of the stories!! I love that the stories are endless. Thankful for the stories, but I ALWAYS skip Kevin’s intros, because his voice is brutally like nails on a chalkboard. Which I do not understand, because when he tells his own stories, his voice definitely changes & is OK to listen to. Anyway, happy holidays 🙂

  4. Kevin uses an entertaining radio voice. Actors invoice over people don’t sound like what they do on the air.
    And it’s extremely rude of you to make fun on someone else and then sign off with the chickenshit “anonymous”.
