Radio Dramas with an In Home Experience

Good Adventures,

This week I'm very excited to be chatting with Rebeca Seitz about her creation - Podpair. Radio dramas paired with a box delivered to your home with things like wine and chocolates and candles, or puzzles, depending on the show's theme. You eat, drink or experience the same things that they do in the show. What a great concept! There's still a tiny bit of time to participate in their Valentines show. Check it out here
