  6. Very sad story beautifully told, however I was listening from a slightly different perspective as I had mistakenly thought that Jan was Jon. To find out afterwards that the story teller was female (with a gender neutral voice) made it even more heartbreaking, because the potential perception of threat was probably a complete illusion.

  7. As a first timer to this podcast/radio show I can say that I’m hooked. This story got me. jesus.
