Extraordinary Stories Poscast
I have to admit I’ve been a loyal fan of ESP since almost the beginning. I’ve enjoyed the host, Baz’s successes over the past year and loved every second of it. Baz is all about telling an interesting story. Not all his episodes deal with true crime but they are all about extraordinary people. Or people doing extraordinary things. He concentrates on the story and is a natural born storyteller. You’ll be transfixed once he starts talking. His voice is also quite soothing so it’s good to listen to to unwind, even if the subject matter is not relaxing, his voice lulls you.
Here you’ll find stories about people you’ve never heard of before. Although the older episodes deal with some familiar names, Baz looks out for stories which have not been told before on other podcasts and you know you’re going to get something original when a new episode drops. He goes the extra mile to find new and interesting stories and people to talk about.
Baz has also started dropping mini episodes mid week which is fantastic for fans like me who can’t get enough. These mini stories are just tiny snatches of amazing stories. The latest one, Attic, was about a person who decided to live in someone’s attic without the home owners knowing with a tragic end.
Stand out episode – this is so difficult because I’ve loved all of the episodes. But to choose one to introduce people to the podcast I would choose Episode 26: Twists, Turns and Truths. This is a story about an abusive husband who would throw hammers at his wife and also hurt his children. The wife reached out to family members so people knew what was going on and she finally files for divorce and the husband leaves. His children do not want to talk to their father at all. The father on the other hand says he has never been abusive. And the judge agrees with him. He says there’s no evidence of abuse. There are no physical marks or scars etc. Baz goes into the idea of evidence of abuse and how one would document that. The judge argues that the wife is lying and turning the children against the husband. Now the husband has been convicted for road rage, a bar fight and stalking. So he’s shown to be an angry man. However the judge rules against her, tells her to leave the house and leave the children with her abusive husband. And then things start getting even trickier. I won’t ruin the episode for you. This was just the first 10 minutes of the podcast. It’s well worth a listen.
Baz has a way with words and knows how to tell a story for maximum drama and interest. He’s a lovely guy who just wants to tell stories. This podcast should definitely be on your subscribed list. 5/5 brilliant shining stars!
