The ingenious concept for this podcast (basically anything that packrat Michael Small has stored for decades might provide the occasion for an episode) allows for a crazy range of fascinating material, from taped conversations with musicians and actors, to Small's own work, family, and life history. Cohosts Michael and Sally (and Small's wife, Cindy) have the easy rapport that comes from a lifelong friendship, and their banter is full of fun. Every episode has made me laugh out loud, but the show also delivers unexpected poignancies. If anything, this podcast offers a strong argument for hanging on to life's ephemera and renting a bigger storage locker--take that, Marie Kondo! Highly recommended.
