Welcome to the The Personal History, Adventures, Experiences & Observations of Peter Leroy podcast. I’m glad you’re here. The Personal History is one large work of fiction composed of many interconnected parts. Its parts are the memoirs and collected works of a fictional character, Peter Leroy, an earnest screwball who tells an alternative version of his life story.
“A masterpiece of American humor.” The Los Angeles Times
