One of my top three podcasts, along with Hidden Brain and 99% Invisible. I enjoy the format of stories related to a theme, find most of the stories interesting and always appreciate the way the show us hosted.

I really wish Ira would focus on more interesting ideas. Recently this podcast has been a terrible translation for middle class millennials.

199: House on Loon Lake
58:41
A real-life Hardy Boys mystery. More than most of our shows, this one lends itself to a Hollywood-style tagline. Perhaps: "The House at Loon Lake: You Might Break In ... But You'll Never Forget." Or, "The House at Loon Lake: Dead Letters Tell No Tales." It's the true story of an abandoned house, discovered by a young boy in the 1970s, and the mystery of why it was abandoned.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/talpodcast/~4/C9-ZFX7QPlQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

01:02:37
The Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee may have to fight to protect Mueller's investigation and make his report public. Now that they’re in the majority, they have new tools they can use. Our producer Zoe Chace spent weeks behind the scenes with them as they tried out their new powers for the first time. This and other stories of people scrambling to get their footing on some challenging terrain.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/talpodcast/~4/I1TKqWhKqjE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
