According to the press release, the new podcast series, which will include eight episodes in its first season, "features a different journalist who shares a unique story, from the weird and humorous to the gut-wrenching and poignant."

The podcast will feature a number of journalists including "Shereen Marisol Meraji, Avery Trufelman, Davy Rothbart, Hannah Kingsley-Ma, Albert Samaha and more, with subjects including a Vietnamese mentalist, a Yugoslavian wedding officiant, a Japanese food engineer, an Ethiopian dog trainer and State Representative Angelica Rubio, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, among others."
