The series is developed and produced by Richard Parks III, whose previous work includes Richard’s “Famous Food” podcast.
In his own statement, Seth said, “Recording and editing these episodes has been an exciting and rewarding experience. Bringing people’s stories to life in these kinds of “ audio documentaries ” gave me incredible insight into what makes up the most defining moments in people’s lives and how they contextualize those moments. I think Frida, Richard, and I were able to do something that even shocks me: produce what appears to be an original podcast.

Together they have created something truly unique that feels right at home at Earwolf. “
