Had an odd bout of insomnia last night. The call of the Timbers game worked like a charm.

What a treat to have an ASMR podcast to recreate the conditions. I can almost smell a Chicago summer breeze as I close my eyes to this. - Molly F.
Kind of like a glass of milk in some ways, and also like taking acid in other ways. - Ike T.
There's a goat on the field... - Al S.
I am so glad this exists, and I hope you make a ton more. - Chris O.
