Interesting concept, but couldn't get past the feeling that it strove too hard to be "quirky". Felt very similar to Every Little Thing, also from Gimlet (so if you like that one, you will probably like this). Also just didn't love the host.

Extremely powerful and important. It gave the survivors a voice and a control over the narrative. However, it was really hard to listen to the abuse described and how long/often it occured.

This really was an excellent podcast surrounding a topic I can't believe I didn't know about. The journalist, Josh Baker, is charming, unbiased, and reminds me of a Jon Ronson or a little more serious Louis Theroux. He is extremely dedicated to his work and goes to crazy places (like war torn Syria and Kurdish prisons) to get the story. By the end, you're left with answers, sort of, but still aren't entirely sure what to believe and how to feel about it.

A fun podcast that delves a little deeper into reality tv. Even if you don't know all the shows, there are some interesting topics brought up.

I super appreciate a short, informative podcast. This one is all about how tactics used to convince people cigarette's aren't bad are used the same way for climate change. Very frustrating, but the host has a light tone and is an easy listen.

It's Wondery, so the production is great and the voice acting is professional (even if Gillian Jacobs can be annoying sometimes). It's a pleasure to listen to and the story is interesting enough. Some of the reveals seemed a bit obvious and I think they lost the thread a bit between the first and second season, but still keeps your interest.

I thought the topic was extremely interesting and very serious, but the tone of the host felt super off. Like everything was there for entertainment and suspense and ignoring the reality of children missing because their mother is in a cult. Also would have liked to learn more about that.

Didn't enjoy this one at much; it felt kind of...off? Also, I understand wanting to give space to POC to speak, but then the choice was made to include the voices of the white employees anyway. If that is the case, I would rather hear it from them rather than paraphrasing from Sruthi.

Another good isntallation from Wondery, this time diving into the crooked side of medical treatment. Exposes the harm some are willing to inflict on others to make a quick buck. Sometimes the dramatic speaking is just a little much.

I was a little underwhelmed when I saw the topic this week because it seemed like such old news at this point. I don't know why I ever doubted Sruthi Pinnamaneni. Digs deep into the BA story and the bigger issue surrounding it. Tastefully done, gripping, and can't wait for the next one!

I think this is a well researched, informative podcast for those who want a very comprehensive dive into the events that lead up tp 9/11. Personally, I found it very long and boring in a lot of parts (which feels a little bad to say).

I wouldn't say this is one of their best episodes or anything, but it felt good, like a return to form. It was the old crew, their great rapport, explaining something vaguely tech related. It was nice.

I couldn't finish this one. Host sounded bored the whole time and the amount of times he said how much he "didn't give a shit" about American politics was kind of off putting. There was really nothing new here to add to the one Reply All episode that covered the same topic.

Love the concept, but I just can't get past the format. I really dislike the set up where one host brings in information, and the other is just there to react to it. They also aren't scientists, and so just sit there reading what is basically a wikipedia article and talking about it.

Compelling, mysterious, and a little horrific. The audio production and acting is top notch, completely immersing, and the story is no different. I could see where at times it relies on sounds a little too much and it is confusing as to what is happening, but it usually clears it up if you keep listening. You can also always reference the r/nosleep post, which is where this podcast originated. So great.

It's well produced, short, and is super easy to listen to. The plot is easy enough to follow along to, and it's quick pace keeps you interested. Definitely worth a listen, especially if you have any interest in cyber security. However, the ending fell a little flat for me, as per a lot of audio dramas.

Pretty intersting telling of the dot com bubble bursting. As someone who didn't know a lot about it, it was really informative. They did focus on individual companies though, and sometimes I wish it went over it more as a whole.

Rough Translation is like many NPR podcasts. Solid journalism with a wide range of topics. Some are incredibly interseting stories that you never though you needed to hear (but do!) and others just don't do it for me.

Very interesting dive that starts with gun rights and ends up in weird wings of Christianity and anti-republican republicans. Pretty scary stuff, but an important and well researched podcast.

If you're interested in tv shows and trivia, then this is the podcast for you! The host offers a good range of questions and has a nice rapport with guests.
