A favorite TPC Episode of season two was the “Characters of the Chronicles” interview with Bob Basler, author of the  online literary work, 5 AM Stories. He was one of The Chronicles creator& host’s closest childhood buddies from the Ol’ Neighborhood & is now a good friend after reconnecting over the last several years. When he first joined the TPC mike back in May of 2023, his entertaining weekly post had just launched to a small but appreciative readership and our back & forth was memorable and great fun. TPC Episode 303 catches up with Bob after 70+ posts with over 6…

In response to inquiries by faithful fans,  Episode 223 steps away from tales and talks about the Old Neighborhood & takes a deep dive into the numbers that comprise the TPC fan base, & the possible places & personalities behind them. It’s a light-hearted, tongue-in-check consideration of what kind of folks might listen in week to week. Some might even be surprised by the breadth of this little effort’s appeal. It’s a little shorter offering, so no excuses. Enjoy!!#indynostalgia, #60snostalgia, #50snostalgia, #schoolnostalgia,#storytelling
