One could get "nit-picky" about how parts of this recording reek with the pretence of casualness and colloquial delivery...though, suffice it to say: this audio publication - these great stories do have the power to restore Faith (in life; in self; in your God, perhaps...) to what may be a forgotten positive circuitry within the listener.
