1: "Big Jim and Smokey Joe" by Strangers.

Our favourite podcast episode for this week: Big Jim and Smokey Joe by Strangers (one of the many brilliant Radiotopia podcasts.)

A Hollywood waitress, a former bomber pilot, and a retired railroad engineer from the Midwest embark on the adventure of a lifetime. This is one of our favourite podcast episodes of all time. Let's be frank: Statistics says that with that many people on earth it is very likely for seemingly very unlikely things to happen, and if those things are heart-warming, funny and unexpected, they have to reported on a radio show.
