The Special
From artists to architects, musicians to entrepreneurs, its places and its spaces and most of all, its food. That’s what makes a city 'special.’ Hosted by Minya Oh, a.k.a. “Miss Info,” we’re checking out six American cities to find out what gives them their unique flavor.

Sadly mediocre
The quality of production and Minya Oh’s narrative both pop but it becomes apparent immediately that this is a 6 part commercial for the BMW X7. Hopefully Minya realizes she could produce a much better podcast on her own soon, I think she would find a loyal following quickly.

Feels forced
This podcast is a good idea in theory but not in execution. It feels like an ad, interpersed with details about the city being featured. It feels a little inauthentic and forced. I would expect better from the Infatuation and T Brand.

Good idea, disappointing product
I liked the idea of learning about different cities through their history, food and culture, but this podcast doesn’t deliver on the promise. It feels very surface level. There are too many quality podcasts available to waste any more time with this one.
