I'm up late watching my boys sleep and I just finished your first episode. I am in awe of how great it is. The quality doesn't surprise me (I've always been a fan), but it's so dead-on: the mix, the sound, the writing, the interviews, all dovetail into a brilliant synergistic composition. It's inspiring. Oh my God, I've got to get back to this. I'd nearly given up. Thank you.

This is gorgeous! I love the pacing, the braiding of literal and metaphoric. You stayed close to the physicality of shelves and shelf life, while taking us to places of loss, longing, and redemption. The sound mix reminds me of the ocean-- seamless, undulating, always shifting, yet in a seductively soothing way that pulls us in without overwhelming the stories.

The mix, as well as the choice of stories, also reminds me of the complexity of memory-- layering disparate threads and weaving them together in surprising ways. I liked the way that you took things I wouldn't normally associate together, and presented them in a way where they create resonance between, and among, themselves. I look forward to your next episodes!
