Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of true stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. Moth storytellers stand alone, under a spotlight, with only a microphone and a roomful of strangers. The storyteller and the audience embark on a high-wire act of shared experience which is both terrifying and exhilarating. Since 2008, The Moth podcast has featured many of our favorite stories told live on Moth stages around the country. For information...

1. New theme music - I love to listen to the moth especially when I can’t sleep or am up taking care of one of our babies. I find it soothing EXCEPT when the theme music plays. The frenetic sound is jarring and unpleasant. And I dislike it all the more because it intrudes in these dark and memorable times when I seek the peace of someone else’s story.
2. Fed up - I love the podcast I just wish that every other story wasn’t about some person being oppressed and some way or another, it just seems like a common narrative in today’s society that if you’re gay or black, you must be a second class citizen. America has come so far from where it once was and there is little to no acknowledgment of this. I understand that these are people stories, and how they view the world. I wish that social media and society at large would do a better job of acknowledging our progress rather than sitting in the past. If your goal is to make people think that straight white males are evil and never going to change, you are so very close to achieving that goal!
3. The Peoples Program - I started listening to MOTH in . After I moved into my first house and after Hurricane Katrina. I moved to NC in , bringing my mother here from California so that my sister and I could take care of her.
My mother was diagnosed with Leukemia
and was in the fourth stage when it was diagnosed.
Listening to MOTH helped me to get through this.
4. Re-runs - Used to love this podcast and now it’s been the same stories over and over. I’ve only been listening for three years but every time I put it on recently it’s multiple stories I’ve already heard. There are so many unique stories out there and archives filled with recordings why play the same ones over and over, especially so closely together? It feels lazy like they can’t be bothered to edit new episodes or find fresh voices.
5. My dad LOVES this podcast - I’ve introduced my year old dad to the world of podcasts and this by far his favorite. (I love it too)
We sit and listen together, it reminds him of his youth sitting around the radio with family.
The format is wonderful for him, holds his interest, and brings many nods, smiles, and laughs.
6. My absolute favorite podcast - I LOVE this podcast! I work in landscaping, so all day long I work and listen to The Moth. This show makes my day go by so fast! Just yesterday a stranger stopped me and asked what I was listening to. He said he see me working often and I’m always smiling and laughing, I told him it was because of The Moth. I definitely recommended this podcast to him.
7. Real Life is Better than Fiction - This is one of my top podcasts. I sometimes listen twice!! I love hearing of our shared humanity. I just sent “The Kindness of Strangers” to a sister-friend. This episode challenged me to collect memories of the kindness of strangers in my life. A great Touchstone.
Thank you for creating and posting this life affirming Podcast.
8. Same thing over and over - The same stories are repeated over and over. It’s fun to listen to for awhile but then you either have to power through hearing a story for a rd or th time, or spend time skipping. There have been a lot of great and entertaining stories so I still give it / stars. Also, with the book coming out the hosts seem self indulgent. I could have done without episodes of their conversation around writing a book. We get it. So snooty.

Release date: 2022-11-23
1. Be Prepared to Binge - This is one of, if not THE, BEST podcasts I have ever listened to. I discovered it about a month ago and couldn’t bring myself to listen to anything else. Beautifully executed, riveting storyline, fantastic characters and a palpable tension that you just can’t seem to shake. Seriously, don’t listen to this if you aren’t ready to binge all episodes. It’s that good. Start at the first and enjoy. I might just listen again myself!
2. this series has brainwashed me - i listen to it while i’m sleeping, waking up, brushing my teeth, going to bed, doing exercise, eating, going to school and even going to my job. somebody help. i started around weeks ago and i’m on episode . i’m obsessed and i’m so happy that i finally found a horror podcast that also includes one of the best gay romances i’ve ever seen, but god i miss michael so much!! / got quite a few of my friends into it aswell P.S; check out the other works by rusty quill. absolutely phenomenal!! they do such funny game/dnd podcasts :))
3. A Solid Three… was a solid three - : Love the concept completely. A beautiful blend between the SCP, XFiles and Lovecraft. : The production value. It’s really well done : Sheer enjoyment. Currently at ep. If the characters were better, less whiny I would’ve cared for them more… as it is. It’s my curiosity about the world that is keeping me going. The relationship arc and Martin have costed it a star. Unbearable
4. Avatar of the Spiral - I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did, but I loved it! I had never tried horror before, but this podcast is so well planned and put together, trying to figure out the larger story was captivating. I’ve really enjoyed relistening with my new knowledge, and watching the characters discover things through a whole new lens. I’m really looking forward to part !
5. Fully obsessed - I’ve never listened to a horror fiction podcast before. I love eldritch-esque tales of horror and anything that has a spooky, supernatural, unexplainable, gothic feel to it. So obviously I fell in love with MA right away. This is the first podcast I’ve listened to that genuinely created a sense of fear in me. Heart racing, feeling a little jumpy and checking my peripherals to make sure I’m not in danger. Even listening at work, in a cubicle environment with thousands of people in the building, I found myself thinking: “Am I going to take my headphones off and stand up and everyone will have mysteriously vanished?” Even with true crime and other podcasts that tell spooky stories, it would take episode upon episode, if not multiple seasons of binge listening to create that feeling. Magnus Archives had me on edge from the beginning. And I consider that a win. I’m excited (is that the right word?) to listen to more episodes, to see when and if and how these all tie together in some tangled way. And I will certainly not be listening at home, alone, at night.
6. Spooky little pseudo-anthology - Very well done horror podcast with an interesting story that initially disguised itself as an anthology series. You’ll probably find something you dread within with the overarching mysteries within if you listen closely. It is worth listening to all but the last season again when you know the answers to see the clues that were spread out along the path the whole time. Unfortunately the quality plummets during the last season forcing me to only give it a /. During this season the anthology part of the writing accidentally shifts to a misery focus rather than horror and the subtle clues I liked from the previous seasons are gone. That said, outside the anthology stories is still well written and the final answers may be worth going through for.
7. out of All-Seeing Eyes - This is an outstanding podcast, truly. It held my attention from the first episode, and was something to look forward to after work every day. With a wonderful set of characters, a very consistent flow, and many different kinds of horror, I’m sure even the most skeptical of listeners will find something they think is neat.
8. keysersoze - Okay, so, podcasts have always been sort of boring to me. As a kid I only really listened to like “fun”, informational, cheesy podcasts, so I don’t have super amazing experiences attached to those memories. Even story podcasts were never super interesting to me. So, naturally, as I got older, I really stayed away from podcasts. I was almost completely disinterested in them until that one Nikola Orsinov audio went viral on TikTok, and it appeared in a video I watched. It was creepy, and the podcast was a horror, so I decided to start listening. Not only did I binge the entire first season in a matter of two days, but I just became obsessed with Magnus Archives. This show is absolutely spine-tingling, suspenseful, and has the most smart and interesting storytelling. The acting is stellar, the writing is so creative and original, and overall, this podcast is just spectacular! I love this show so much and I want to thank Rusty Quill / TMA as a whole for getting me back into the beautiful world of podcasts. This got me through some tough car rides and sleepless nights. I recommend this podcast to anyone, even those who aren’t into the horror genre.

1. Have always love d the show, but….. - Have always loved the show but I’m disappointed at the growing trend of leading listeners into a riveting story, then abandoning them to find their own way to the ending on some other podcast. Not cool… and not why I listen to Snap Judgement. Please give us complete stories, like you have in the past—don’t leave us hanging!
2. Always. So. Very. Good. - Glynn Washington is something special -- he and the Team Snap have created the most amazing sonic experience, EVER. I honestly don't know how they manage to produce so many original episodes every year of this quality! Gold Standard. Do yourself a favor and subscribe right away.
3. Rivals - Suitcase of Love & Shame - This segment is totally void of any concern for personal privacy, taste or decency from Snap Judgement’s Producers as well as Jane Gillooly. To think that anyone from such a reputable institution would think it’s even remotely ethical to publicly air extremely sensitive & private recordings is mind blowing. As if that wasn’t enough of a violation, Jane Gillooly goes on to denigrate the subjects with assaults like “pathetic” while recordings of their private sexual acts play in the background.
4. Yes! - His voice is just so awe I can listen to him talk all day, but I love that I get to listen to someone else speak from their perspective too if I don’t like em I know it won’t be for too long and if I do I know they will be around for a little while while I get some things done around the house! It’s the prefect blend of relaxing without being a drag and exiting but not in a way where you have to follow so close or you get lost! Definitely one of my favorites:)
5. Love it! - I’ve been a fan of Snap Judgment for many years. I look forward to listening to the show every week and even sometimes during the week I’ll go back and listen to old episodes. I highly recommend this podcast. It’s insightful, emotional and hilarious. Glynn Washington tells the best stories. Give it a listen. You won’t be disappointed!
6. More than just a story - Ever listen to a story and you really enjoy at the time but you have no idea how long that story will stay with you. That’s what it’s like to tune into Snap Judgment. There is a story on here that’s going to stick with you if you keep listening. I’m sad now because I can’t remember the show title of one of my favorite but the beautiful story keeps playing in my mind. Snap judgment is a Must listen podcast for me.
7. Going strong - I started listening to SJ in . I was and had just moved from USA to London for a year work stint. I was pretty lonely initially and filled my time with… work. While I worked, I started listening to NPR radio on my comp and happened to catch an episode of SJ. I fell in love and it became my near daily staple. Fast forward a decade and I still listen SJ has had numerous episodes that to me, are the acme podcasts. Real human narratives that range from the highly relatable to the surreal…yet still somehow relatable. Stories that aren’t often told and stories told often but done in a way that make them fresh. I can’t say I have listened to any other podcast for a decade….
8. The music distracts me - I use to listen to this show all the time. Then less and less. I came to realize that I was dreading the music. As wonderful as it is, it seems to be taking more of a center stage, more music, louder, for longer intervals. It distracts me. I’m a truck driver and like to listen to stories but I find myself having to fight thru the loud music to hear the words in the story. I’m sure I’m the only one.
New episodes releasing every other week. Spooked features true-life supernatural stories, told firsthand by people who can barely believe it happened themselves. Be afraid. Created in the dark of night, by Snap Judgment Studios, and hosted by Glynn Washington. Season 7 will be streaming through Spring 2023.
Release date: 2023-03-03
1. Amazing show. Will save my money to binge. - I’ve loved the show ever since it launched. I am still % a fan. But when I was like girl I needed to think about my funds, and I cannot pay for Podcasts willy-nilly. Typically, in the beginning, around spooky season, podcast would be released.So now, with every two weeks, or hiatuses around Christmas, I can’t afford paying whatever amount a week for nothing. I will just wait when podcast releases are more frequent, and pay then. For now, no, but it’s still fantastic.
2. Amazingly well done. - So good, best subscription EVAH. From the incredible host(!!), to the stunning production, and I don't know where they find the storytellers -- this is content worth paying for -- TEN STARS! From minute one, Glynn had me screaming and hiding under my covers. Be afraid, and don't turn out the lights!
3. Not releasing weekly as stated - Have loved this podcast since it started. Even added the subscription to keep listening when you switched from free to monthly payments. Content is great but you don’t release weekly. You should change that in the description so new people know they aren’t getting episodes per month for their payment. Or go back to offering for free and release whenever.
4. Good but can improve - I love it it’s very good but not many episodes come out and the few that do come out are subscriptions.so why not just buy subscription? You may be thinking well still I won’t get a lot of episodes I personally would rather wait until I get one that isent subscription and then listen if they won’t come out often even with subscription. Other than that it’s amazing great sound affects to get you scared! Got me scared for days!!!!!
5. Love the show but… - I’ve been listening to this show for a few years now and LOVE it. I even pay the monthly subscription. There hasn’t been a lot of new content though. I look forward to listening on Fridays. They have only been putting out one episode a month, if that. I’m wondering if the show will go back to its regular schedule, and if it’s worth keeping my subscription.
6. The best. The absolute best. - Love the production and how people are telling what actually happened to them. The story telling is well done and doesn’t meander. The only thing I cannot stand is the beginning where the host goes on and on talking in his bizarre manner. I seriously cannot listen and comprehend anything he is saying. It is like nails on a chalkboard and he just eats up
The time of what we all come to listen to… the actual stories. Don’t let his inane ramblings stop you from listening to the podcast. I just skip past him, but each time he blathers on and on, it just irritates me.
7. The D – E – B – R – a episode - I love your Podcasts everyone is better than the last. But while why are you allowing a story with pronouns like that for a singular baby. Not only do we all not agree with it it's bad grammar bad English and utterly confusing when she's referring to her singular baby in plural form it ruined it and I'm disappointed you wouldn't have more sense for the first part of the episode I kept thinking she was referring to both her kids and maybe I'm not with it enough to understand but why is she referring to her baby in plural ? it was confusing and disappointing other than that five stars all the way!!!!
8. The BEST. Amazing content and sound design - I have been following horror podcasts for many years and this is the absolute best. These stories are about hauntings and scary things- NOT let’s not meet again or stalker stories told my mediocre voice actors. Spooked is the real deal- I held out on paying the subscription fee but it’s worth it because there is a lot of content and each show is long and interesting. The host opens the show with a memory, a thought, an experience- in his spoken word way- creative and unrestricted, honest and moving. This is not Amateur hour! The sound design and editing is amazing, so much atmosphere and a lack of babbling from the non performers telling their stories (they’re just talking about it so there’s no script but you don’t have to hear the ummms, likes, and ya knows). Just subscribe. It’s the best thing out there.
The best short fiction, handpicked by the best voice in podcasting. In every episode, host LeVar Burton (Roots, Reading Rainbow, Star Trek) invites you to take a break from your daily life, and dive into a great story. LeVar’s narration blends with gorgeous soundscapes to bring stories by Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury and more to life. So, if you’re ready, let’s take a deep breath...
Release date: 2023-02-21
1. My Happy Place - I love LeVar Burton, and I love the wonderful authors and stories he reads. I listen to the stories multiple times and catch new details with each listening. It’s the only podcast I have set to download and never delete. And I’ve gone on to read many of the books written by authors he’s read. Another wonderful season!
2. Wonderful Story Selections - Levar reads beautifully. I wouldn’t mind listening to him reading instructions for filling out tax forms (it’s that time of year), but that’s unnecessary. The story selection in this podcast is so interesting and so varied. I enjoy speculative fiction, and this is my favorite place to listen to it.
3. Best Podcast Ever - Truly my favorite podcast, the selection of stories is brilliant, the telling is riveting and the sound quality is excellent. I would love to hear Little Bottles by Abigail Weaver read someday. I think its supernatural/cultural/emotional themes would fit well with the other stories collected here.
4. Stellar Read Alouds - There’s nothing better than listening to a fantastic story no matter how old you are. I’ve been recommending this podcast to friends because there has to be something for everyone. Thanks to the production team, editors, and Lavar making story time full of wonder one podcast at a time.
5. One of my favorite podcasts! - When I discovered this podcast, I felt like I had found gold. Of course I would listen to Levar Burton read the phone book, but I adore the stories that he chooses to read. The diversity of authors is amazing & I’ve ever been able to share some of the stories with my son.
6. Astounding - I adore LeVar and I’ve had this podcast on my list for ages, but it unfortunately got lost in the dozens of others I subscribe to. A friend recently reminded me of it, so I dove in and I’m so glad I did. Not only is LeVar a stellar storyteller (of course!), the production is beautiful. I wasn’t expecting the soft touches of music and effects that subtly add to the experience. Just beautifully done! LeVar’s insights on the stories are also sincere and thought-provoking. I’ve felt so touched and energized and inspired while listening. I hope this podcast never ends! Thank you, LeVar, for continuing to enrich me, just as you did when I was a child.
As for a suggestion: anything by Gerald L. Coleman!
7. LeVar Burton Reads - Mr. Burton demonstrates an old-fashioned generosity of the spoken word when he shares his selections of short stories with us on his podcast , LeVar Burton Reads. His multi-layered gifts that he bestows upon his fans happen to be especially fortuitous during these challenging and sad days of Covid isolation. Thank you for leaving the bounty of the story with us on your exceptionally produced podcasts! @isabooklady @isabookladyNYC
8. Most impactful pod I’ve listened to! - I’ve been listening to the podcast for about a year and have so many fond memories from the stories. Levar’s enthusiasm brings the stories to life, his somber tones make the sadder moments resonate even more. I love being introduced to so many wonderful and evocative stories by the talented writers. Cheers to everyone involved with bringing this podcast to life!

1. Great - I really love this podcast. The content and audio quality of the shows presented in this podcast is very good, but unlike other podcast which broadcast old radio shows, the host Adam Graham makes them come alive. I really enjoy his commentary and insights into each episode. If you are looking for a pod cast for old time radio shows, this is number on my list. Well done Adam!!
2. Fantastic Podcast! - This podcast is a must-listen for anyone who is a fan of the Golden Age of Radio. Not only is it great to hear some well-known and popular series and characters (such as Johnny Dollar and Dragnet), but I’ve also been exposed to numerous shows I had never heard of before. Adam is a wealth of knowledge about old-time radio, and his commentary is equal parts insightful, humorous, and informative. Cannot recommend the podcast enough; please keep up the great work!
3. Too many ads now - This used to be my favorite old time radio podcast but there are too many minutes of commercials now. It has become unbearable to wade through the ads to get to the content. Sorry Adam, I appreciate that you are an entrepreneur and have monetized your shows but the ads have ruined it for me. Best of luck to you.
4. Chooses - There are a number of ways to consume old time radio detective stories, but I have not found a more exhaustive, organized podcast, often presenting the harder to find episodes. The ads of the time, and sometimes long intros and closing music are left intact, leading to long modern intros and ads before and after. I will admit to not always being in the mood for Adam Graham, and his unique style, and I will skip forward and set a podcast to played when there is no more of interest to me. The second scenes for up coming episodes really seems to be a misstep, and the host not being able to keep his voice levels consistent mean that sometime I am done listening when the better part of minutes still remains.
5. Adam Graham is good - As a lifelong fan of OTR, (I’m years too young to have heard the original broadcasts), I appreciate these podcasts. Adam Graham provides not only original air dates, but also show descriptions. That is something sadly lacking in most OTR podcasts. Give a listen and check out the other offerings.
6. Wonderful Discovery - I’m so happy to have discovered this pod cast! Never since the demise of the Old Time Radio Convention have I had so much enjoyment. As a young person my favorites were Nick Carter, Mr Keen and. Mr Chameleon and Hearthstone of the Death Quad. Although these are not necessarily played on this website I was a Communist for the FBI is and I’m hooked. GREAT!
7. My absolute favorite podcast! - I have been listening to the Great Detectives of Old Time Radio for quite some time now, and I must say how much I really enjoy it. I have also listened to other old-time radio detective podcasts, but this one is my absolute favorite, bar none. Why? Mainly because of the host, Adam Graham. He not only hosts the show, but he also gives interesting background information about each and every episode—interesting tidbits about the actors and actresses in each episode as well as pertinent and interesting information about the episodes themselves. He makes each episode truly enjoyable and fun, and I always look forward to listening to this program because of that. Adam presents all the old time detective greats: Philip Marlowe, Sherlock Holmes, Richard Diamond, Johnny Dollar, Night Beat, Dragnet, Boston Blackie, Box , Casey Crime Photographer, and many, many more. I find myself tuning into The Great Detectives of Old Time Radio while I’m out hiking, while working on projects at home, while driving, while working jigsaw puzzles, and simply when relaxing and winding down for the day. If you are a big old-time detective fan like I am, I would highly recommend that you give The Great Detectives of Old Time Radio a listen. I think you will be pleasantly surprised, and that you will enjoy this program as much as I have.
8. Comprehensive but annoying - This classic radio podcast is amazingly comprehensive. Graham does a good job of acquiring the range of each season. But the sound is sometimes awful. Curator doesn't work on the sound at all. Most of all, he talks way too much in a very annoying voice. He gets complaints about this but he's super devoted to his grating voice. It's a shame. This could be the best of classic radio podcasts. He has a lot of knowledge - that could go onto a blog. And his "Weeeeelllcome back" at the end of each show shocks me every time I hear it!
“ Jimmy Dore is outrageous and outraged, bothersome and bothered, a crucial, profane, passionate voice for progressives and freethinkers in 21st century America.” -Patton Oswalt
Release date: 2023-02-24
1. U-Turn - Listened and enjoyed Jimmy’s show on KPFK for many years when he was part of an ensemble cast. Then he decided to go it alone, which marked a major change in direction, and after a few years I’d had enough. During the Trump presidency he was more critical of the Democratic Party than he was of the insanity taking place at the White House, to the point that you would rarely hear him criticize the Right at all. In fact, to a most disturbing degree, almost like his change of direction is being incentivized by something else Those on the Left know that the mainstream Democratic Party are far from being perfect, and that they are part of the political problem. But Jimmy is an absolutist, and therefore not a very smart analyst - its % or nothing at all. If you happened to be a first-time listener, you might be forgiven for thinking that you had stumbled upon a right-wing talk show even though he maintains that he is a “true” leftist. Honestly Jimmy, it’s time to come clean, who is really paying you these days?
2. Great show from a libertarians opinion - I dont have to agree with all of jimmy’s political points but he is willing to explain and put it all on the table as to why he thinks so. He also is respectful to others he disagrees with while providing a fair assessment of his views. Refreshing to hear his perspective considering all the political trash shows on all spectrums. Free thinkers will enjoy this content. When you agree to everything you hear or read, re-evaluate what content you consume. Thats why I enjoy this show.
3. Looser hinkle - Jimmys show was great until he brought on the wanna be Jackson Hinkle. Go look at Jackson’s tweeter and tell me he’s a Marxist. Sorry jimmy you feel for a grifter like a trump wanna be, I’ll check your show later but your gonna loose listeners with a grifter on your show all the time.
4. Talks about what’s prohibited to say in mainstream media - I ignore the divisive dem vs rep rhetoric, and converse with anyone willing to have a conversation based on facts. Interestingly, I regularly have enjoyable dialogue with Libertarians, Democrats, Republicans as well as Green Party members. Obviously, I’m not combative, but listen, lend agreement where I can, and then respectfully share or merely inquire. I’ve found that very few are entirely devoted to ideas belonging to just one party. Everyone seems to be agree with a Libertarian’s principle of freedom, for example. We can focus our similarities and build coalitions to help those marginalized individuals who fall prey to the dark sides of how our societies are run. I suppose those of us whose individual ideas can be found in various parties, could technically make us moderates. I used to bristle at that type of characterization, but now find that embracing the moniker helps have more productive conversations. Isn’t it productive action that makes any kind of difference? This all stands in stark contrast to how the party divide is popularly portrayed. Jimmy is one of a handful of individuals across a broad spectrum of political ideologies, to whom I turn for my news. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s funny!
5. Used to be the biggest fan - …but after the last episode I must unsubscribe. Jimmy had a guy on the show who says that inflation is only due to employers rising prices because of their greed; government should do rationing to avoid inflation (milk, sugar, bread, because it worked in WW); govt should arrest people who raise prices, amongst other crazy things. Jimmy let him rant completely unchallenged. Jimmy is also pro gun control while he always talks about how the gvt can’t be trusted with anything and is completely and utterly corrupt. It just seems completely illogical to me. We can disagree but in totality of his opinions, it just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. You have just lost a listener. Holy moly I can’t believe what I just listened to on this show.
6. This is a star podcast - But as you see it didn't get one. A few reasons. Normally I watch this on YouTube. Episode run time is a minimum of hours. There is no rewind feature so if you miss it you could come here... Except these aren't full episodes. Unless your a premium member there is no way to enjoy this entire show without getting a schedule to fit around it. Jimmy, I want you to get paid. Could you please get some sponsors like normal podcasts? You have great insight, but you need to either commit to a cause or admit this is an income and spreading the truth and shaking cages is just what you tell people to get a buck.
7. used to love it - I used to love this podcast, it was one of the first political shows I started listening to. I heard Jimmy on TYT and when he started his own show a few years ago, I started listening. I find it unfortunate how he has devolved into being much more emotional in the past year or so, even moreso recently. He says some things that I know for a fact are false, or at least require more context which he doesn't give. He usually comes off as abrasive, and I understand how it can be frustrating to deal with politics and politicians, but he turns on, and starts relentlessly attacking, a politician the second they don't do something in the EXACT way he thinks they should. I am super lefty, very Progressive, and while Jimmy claims to be a progressive, he seems more like alt-right most of the time. I understand that there is no perfect politician, but Jimmy seems to think that is actually attainable, just no one has attained it yet. And, while I do understand the importance of pushing politicians in the direction you want them to go, he just comes off as downright aggressive and unable to hold a substantive conversation with anyone he disagrees with. AOC isn't good enough for him. Bernie isn't good enough for him. I can't think of a single politician he EVER speaks favorably about, even on a single issue. Everything is always so negative. He devolves into yelling and pettiness and smears when confronted with something or someone he disagrees with (which is apparently everything and everyone except Aaron Mate). Things are very black and white with him- you're either completely percent with him in every single way, or you must be a corporate shill and therefore your opinion is invalid. I greatly enjoy his attacking of corporate politicians, although he has only talked about Democrats for the past three years. However, those attacks on corporate Dems have lately bled into attacking people like AOC and Sanders, saying they are exactly the same as people like Pelosi. They are nowhere NEAR the same. They aren't even in the same ballpark. I hate Clinton, but she is NOT the exact same as trump. it's when he says stuff that like this that makes me question if he is just a grifter. He is overall divisive and counterproductive, and his one-sided war with TYT (he lies about them constantly... and doesn't even bother to back up his assertions) has really put me off. He comes off as a right-winger, tbh. I miss his old shows because he is sometimes funny and has had good takes about the economy. But he was at his best when pointing out the fallacies of the right wing. The show could be stars, if he still had that format. PS update— holy s, this has offically turned the corner into right wing propaganda... AVOID AT ALL COSTS!! What a serious letdown jimmy has become. TLDR- You'll probably really enjoy this if you're a right winger who doesn't pay attention to policy and is only a right winger because of identity politics and to hate on the Dems and the Left. If you're progressive or lefty, try The Young Turks, AM Quickie, Majority Report, David Pakman. All excellent solid news podcasts. If you're looking for a little more comedy in your news, then The Damage Report has some snark and personality, The Bitchuation Room is epically funny, and also The Bugle is hilarious if you can stand a British accent. Worst Year Ever and Even More News are also quirky and lean comedic.
8. My Progressive Funnel Failed - I try to use Jimmy as my progressive funnel so i get out of my milk toast fence sitting. The Problem has been the massive emotional drive in the show versus facts. I love Jimmy's comedy, but the show is truly meh to mediocre lately. However, he hasn't changed his views, so I can't hit the show on that. If you are highly progressive and live outside of reality this is a show for you. I will have to find a more sane progressive to burst my bubbles that can deliver facts over emotions. Love you Jimmy and wish you well, but the bus stops here for me.EDIT… Jimmy has came back to a more sane approach recently. Very much more enjoyable. More facts that are confirmed by multiple sources instead of emotional drivel.
Presenting the best detectives from the Golden Age of Radio. Each week, we'll bring you an episode starring one of Old Time Radio's greatest detectives and the story behind the show. Join us for adventures of Philip Marlowe, Sam Spade, Johnny Dollar, and many more.
Release date: 2023-03-05
1. Top of the Old Time Radio heap - This show distinguishes itself from the rest of the OTR players in its quality production, the odd and sometimes hilarious ads, and the host’s velvet delivery. Above all, though, I appreciate the context and commentary surrounding the episodes. I’d listen to more history and analysis of these shows.
2. Great show - Appreciate you telling us the background of the actors. Best example was Case Crime Photographer episode. Great show but your descriptions add value, thank you. Hope you become a listener like me. Wonderful background material for each show. I’d be proud to be a part of the program but since I am not, happy to provide my stars
3. Racist remarks n ?? - Great stories but racist remarks ?? SLANTED EYES?? Really?? Yeah a Chinese detective was called that .. I heard other racist remarks too on some other podcasts from the characters themselves … Also Have Gun Will Travel? Didn’t know they actually used the word POLICE back in those days( western era) I thought it was either SHERIFF OR DEPUTY?? Another show with SAM SPADE, about some barrel of oils missing , they’re eventually found but of course Sam n the brother are caught. Oil up to their ankles, ok,, next they walk the bad guy up some stairs ( without slipping?), then Sam wants to light aCIGARETTE WHILE COVERED IN CRUDE OIL,when before he was about to blow the place up while standing in CRUDE Oil?? Make it to make sense
4. Great Bedtime Listen - I’ve been listening to old time radio shows for as long as I can remember. Started with cassettes when I had trouble sleeping, and now I am so lucky to listen to Down these Mean Streets. The catalog is fantastic. I also listen to suspense and so happy that there is always something to listen to. This is better than the calm app. Love the dialogue. Keep up the god work-and keep playing Johnny Dollar.
5. Bonus? Really? - The Comedy Bonus podcasts are just off topic. But I enjoy the private eyes, the old time ads, and even the host. I even like the overview of varied shows each podcast, this is a format choice, not a failing, as some reviews seem to insinuate;
I might even want to listen to a Comedy show from time to time, but usually I skip these. If people like it, how about a different podcast. I May be to blame because I am still subscribed, and I just delete the “bonus” comedy episodes, maybe I need to unsubscribe.
6. Mixed Bag poor production - I started listening to these during the pandemic from the start of the series. In the beginning the episodes weren’t bad. The intros were relatively brief but informative. Some of the detective stories are pretty good. After a while the host stopped using the musical intro and started compiling a bunch of detective story intros and when he adds his intros so you are two minutes in before the host starts. In there was a glitch where the host intros would be doubled so you be at least or minutes in before you even go to the program. Then he piles on a bunch of cigarette ads which are deplorable and now I have to wait minutes to get into the actual program. Still he makes more missteps by glomming on mediocre comedy programs once a week that are not what the podcast is about. Generally the host repeats himself, doesn’t edit his work well, one serial he posted is completely out of order. He usually has the background music mixed too loud that you have a hard time hearing what he is saying. Most of this content can easily be found online through other sources where it is better organized.
7. Down these mean streets - A great trio episodes of this week. The more i hear Dureaya in the part the more I like him. Always loved in the movies as either a good bad man or a heel. An actor who understood his place in Hollywood. Bill Johnstone is some ways better than Jack Webb because he feels the job more. And then my favorite crime show of all time and my favorite episode. It is Dashiel Hammet meets Shakespeare. Happy New Year and stay safe
8. The best host and curation around - I love this interesting, well-researched podcast. All the gems of information shared by the host only add to the enjoyment of the radio shows. The sound quality is better than all the other radio anthologies. Keep up the excellent work...you’re putting me in touch with my parents’ and grandparents’ world. Thank you.
Old time radio mystery programs brought back to life for today's fan of the great shows of yesteryear. Including the classics such as Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe, and more.
Release date: 2023-02-28
1. Perfect classic mystery radio - I’m so thrilled to find this podcast—excellent stories, real classic radio with great sound quality, and even the ads are fun. My favorites are the Agatha Christie, PD James, Sherlock Holmes, and Father Brown mysteries, but it also has the Dragnet and Sam Spade type shows as well.
2. Excellent choice for old time radio mysteries - Very good host - pleasant voice, seems to sincerely enjoy the genre, and not too much commentary. Clear audio and excellent curating. Is now my favorite podcast of this type. Love the Agatha Christie choices as well as the addition of Father Brown. Please do more podcasts in other genres of OTR - you're great at it!
3. Perfect Radio Noir for Winter Nights - If you’re a film noir fan or are missing hard-boiled detective mysteries in your life, this podcast will satisfy with every Marlowe quip. Unfortunately, ample stereotypes and racisms of the time pepper in. Interesting audio time capsule that captures unique story lines, acting and entertaining sound effects, oft along with issues of yesteryear and today. Gotta love the old ads for cigarettes and liquor!
If you like The Moth, This American Life or Snap Judgment, take a walk on the wilder side with RISK! Your colorful host Kevin Allison (of the legendary comedy group The State) helms this surprisingly uncensored show where people tell jaw-dropping true stories they never thought they'd dare to share in public. RISK! is hilarious, heart-wrenching and remarkably real. Think you've heard it all? Fasten your seatbelt.
Release date: 2023-02-28
1. Great stories, challenging host - I would love to give Risk! stars. I value the no limits environment that encourages honest, hilarious, authentic storytelling. Laughing alongside the storytellers in moments of vulnerability as well as revealing the not so shiny aspects of their personality and experience. There are occasional storytellers who strike me as loud, entitled white guys who tell racist, misogynist jokes. Kevin. Many people have said it before but please, for the future of this podcast, limit your introductions. Please have another host read the sponsor messages. I skip every single second of your voice on these recordings and can’t bring myself to listen to your stories which is a shame because I’m sure you have great experiences to share. This is not a personal attack, merely a suggestion to better care for this awesome platform. Let go of the reins and allow someone with a better radio presence to host this show. Perhaps you are a connecter, a weaver of people, and not a host. No shame, just know your lane. Your ratings and listeners will thank you.
2. Great from time to time, insufferable host. - Found out about Risk earlier this year and subscribed after a few episodes. I hit a string of good episodes, with every story being interesting, but eventually I reached some that didn’t really get to any point or fell pretty flat in the end. That’s to be expected though since not every story people tell can be amazing. There’s good variety with drama, comedy, life lessons, etc. And I’ll remember a lot of these for a long time. I can see how these can inspire others to break out and tell their own stories or at least write about them and see if it might help resolve anything. The thing I dislike the most though is the host, Kevin. His voice is constantly going up and down like he’s plastered, and he’ll start laughing for no reason in mid-sentence. On the bright side, he only gets a few minutes of time per episode to introduce and close things. I try to fast forward through his segments because he irritates me so much.
3. Sure but how do I farm Australia most efficiantly? - Imagine my dissapointment when I tuned in. No talk of startegy regarding the early aquisition of Europe , techniques for long term farming in Australia or weather a on going into Congo could ever be called a good idea (hint it is not EVER).
I mean it's an o.k. podcast but it aint my RISK!
4. Unfollow - Kevin I’ve been a RISK listener for years now and for some reason I’ve yet to figure out, the show just’ isn’t for me anymore. I’m more annoyed with the story tellers than routing for them (not good for a comedy show)
I do thank you for introducing me to Ray Christen’s stories of his journey. KF- Albuquerque NM
5. Risk saved my life - I’ve been listening to Risk! for about ten years now. I still look forward to each new episode. The host, Kevin, is an amazing human and advocate and really makes the podcast feel like home. Also, he has an outstanding sense of humor and often leaves me laughing out loud. I have struggled with mental illness my whole life and that’s led me to make some less-than-great decisions, especially when I was younger. Listening to Risk! has given me so much insight on the plights of others. This podcast taught me empathy, humility, and the meaning of respect. Through it, I have found my own callings in life and I have found so much strength within that I do not believe would have been possible without this podcast. Simply the best story-telling podcast out there. I love you, Risk!
6. RAW - I love this show. It is brave and true. Some episodes make me feel uncomfortable some (very few) have made me feel so uncomfortable that I chose to skip the story. No need to slam the whole show because one persons story makes me cringe. I still appreciate the fearless honesty and Kevin for creating this platform that fosters such raw authenticity
7. Love this podcast - Hey, Kevin I’ve been “binge listening” to Risk for the past month when I discovered it through Chris Ryan aka Tangentially Speaking podcast. Risk! My new favorite podcast… amazing!!! Dude you crack me up and I get a kick out of your antics. It’s comical to me when I’ve heard you say how you’ve had listener complaints about your commentary. For the love of god! Some of the audiences and story tellers are so obnoxious, I’ve had to fast forward. Love you man!!! Keep being yourself.
8. My favorite Podcast - I started listening to podcasts in and I have listened to sooo many. This is still hands down my favorite one. I recently went on a road trip and went back again to the earlier years (which you get as a Patreon member ;-) ). I listened with my fiancé for his first time and it made our road trip and brought us closer. It reminds you that there are real people everywhere and reminds you to be real yourself. I can’t even explain how many days or possibly years have been saved by a good Risk episode or .
Poet Major Jackson is your guide on the pathways to feel and understand our common journey – through poetry. In sharing poems, we take a moment to pause and acknowledge the world’s magnitude, and how poets illuminate that mystery. Join The Slowdown for a poem and a moment of reflection in one short episode, every weekday. Produced by APM Studios in partnership with The Poetry Foundation and supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Release date: 2023-03-03
1. Thrilled this show is back, and with Major Jackson!! - This show is my favorite daily ritual, and I’m so pleased that Major Jackson has joined the lineage of amazing hosts! I love the way this show makes poetry accessible, and I really appreciate the host’s commentary. Kudos to the production team!
2. Guest host Shira Erlichman - I’m a longtime listener of The Slowdown, so when consummate host and poet Ada Limon announced she’d be going on vacation this August, I found myself dreading her upcoming absence. Turns out, however, there was nothing but delight in store as Shira Erlichman stepped in as guest host. Her soulful delivery quickly became the portal to my morning meditations and sent me down multiple rabbit holes in search of more work by the poets she so skillfully introduced. Suffice it to say I will miss her when she goes and hope The Slowdown will consider bringing her back as a more permanent contributor to this excellent show.
3. Not Dandelion Wine - Ada sent me on a wild goose chase for a story by Ray Bradbury about the wind that wanted to kill a man, which she says she read in the th grade in his book “Dandelion Wine.” But that’s a memoir, not a book of stories! Now I'm wondering where I can find that story. Very frustrating, considering he wrote and published hundreds of them. I hope her other references are fact-checked. Otherwise, this is a very nice podcast about poetry — although I prefer those that simply present the poem without any preface by someone other than the poet.
4. Feeding people is loving people. - Thank you, Tracy, for this poetry offering of love. I am grateful for these connections that I feel each day from the slowdown. Hearing your own and the other poets’ thoughts through your kind and gentle voice is a soothing balm for me these days. I will miss you, when your hiatus happens, and I only wish you peace and love in the coming days.
5. Everything - This podcast is simply everything. I love starting my day in the peace and ease of Tracy’s generous, honest, and wise commentary followed by the wide and deep poetry she shares. I return later in the afternoon - a long day lived with young children and home-keeping and good work only half-complete - and the words echo and hold me again. The Slow Down transcends and is a source that truly helps me re-ground, re-center, and re-member myself. I’m so grateful to have found it and so highly recommend.
6. Poetry the way I want to consume it - I used to love poetry but fell out of reading it. I already go to so many theatre events that attending more poetry events isn’t tenable. But hearing poetry read aloud is the best and that’s exactly what Tracy K Smith does so well in each day’s Slowdown episode. Thank you for letting us into your mind a bit and sharing these poems with us.
7. Charm - This is a warm space. And it’s full of lights. The conceit of this space is, it seems, to put the poem in the world. Not above it. The first minutes are about... life. The poem comes in only after the world is established. It’s worn not like a hat, but like something inward, held. A rib, a nerve, a bronchus. You’ll feel every moment. It’s so... cool! The Slowdown is steady and radiantly wrought.
8. I start my day with The Slowdown - The quality of my life has changed for the better because of The Slowdown. There are so many levels to this, not the least of which is my writing. Passionate, musical, skillful verbal acts are now a daily presence in my life. I think you understand how much this means to me. Each introduction sets its poem up for admiration for always. And it’s lovely and helpful, in so many ways, to get to know Ms. Smith. One final thing: it was fun to hear Ms. Smith mention walking down DeKalb Avenue. I live off of DeKalb, across the street from the park. Baby sparrows are rising up as twittery groups right now and the black-eyed susans in many stages are still going strong. Bright brown dried leaves have been gathering on the horse chestnuts. it’s cool with almost September.

1. I love this so much! - This is the best podcast I've ever heard! Your voice suits it perfectly and the stories seem so real(I think they might be real I hope) I don't know why I haven't listened to this sooner but I listen to these every night and they always give me the creeps this podcast is perfect for anyone who looks for a good scare keep up the good work!
2. EL CHICANO - I’m subscribed and follow various podcast that tell scary stories and talk about paranormal events. Today I came across this podcast in particular and it’s the best one out of all of them! Straight to the point and I like that ! The stories are real ! Which make it the best! keep up the great work! EL CHICANO
3. Was my favorite late night pod - and I am SO happy you’re back!! But the most recent episodes are so much louder than your previous ones I listen on the lowest volume setting and it’s still too loud for any of your neurodivergent / stimuli extra sensitive listeners like me, it makes it a lot harder to listen to which is a bummer cause your podcast is awesome!! Hope hope hoping this is just a glitch or oversight since it’s been a long time since uploading (here)
4. This is actually an amazing Podcast - I listened to all of this podcast in a week. I will tell you, this stuff never disappoints. The sound in the back and the quiet voice are so simple and soothing. Not to mention how interesting each story is. I love this podcast so much and I’m happy he is back. Please make many more, this stuff makes my day easier.
5. Great narratives, soothing voice - I have been under enormous, unrelenting stress for a few years now and don’t fall sleep too well as my mind doesn’t stop racing, even if my body is tired. This podcast helps me fall asleep. In my opinion this is ONE of only TWO of the best true scary podcasts that are out there, without too many paranormal stories as I don’t like those at all-EVER. (Those often seem fake) Your voice is articulate and clear, which I appreciate very much. There are only a few other true scary podcasts that might be great but I honestly can’t understand the heavy British/Aussie accents that are read too quietly (with rather loud accompanied sound effects) without some sort of close captioning, which I obviously can’t get for audio. No offense to all of the lovely people across the pond there as I think it’s my own audible issues.
Thank you for being my natural sleep aid!
6. BEST scary story podcast - LOVE THIS PODCAST !!! i always to it to chill out or even fall asleep - it’s wonderful and the stories are so interesting! i really appreciate that they’re not super cliche as usually these stories can be, they always have a really good twist to them that sets them apart and makes them stick in your mind. as a horror fan AND a fan of a good night’s sleep, this podcast is the all around best to listen to.
First of its kind to bring you Old Time Radio Westerns Daily. Westerns that include The Lone Ranger, Cisco Kid, Challenge of the Yukon, Have Gun Will Travel, The Six Shooter, Tales of the Texas Rangers, Gunsmoke, Hopalong Cassidy, and even the Roy Rogers Show.
Release date: 2023-03-05
1. Brings Nostalgia - I didn’t grow up in this age I wasn’t even born. These stories were made at my grandparents and parents times. But these stories bring a nostalgia a certain feeling of a time when things were simpler when entertainment was simpler and very entertaining. I enjoy these stories thank you for showing a millennial what a simpler time was like back then.
2. RAD. - So stoked to find this show!
I’m new to podcasts, and I’m somewhat of an old soul. I’m glad to find options outside of “talk radio”.
Really excited to follow and continue to listen as more episodes come out!
Thankyou for not letting the entertainment of yesteryear disappear! out of would recommend
3. The BEST - You do such a great job with this podcast and I’m so happy I ran across it!! I’ve been a faithful listener for some months now and i think I’ve listened to every show I could download. My absolute favorite is without a doubt the six shooter is the greatest show I’ve listen to! Anyway keep it up
4. Replace the Announcer - The announcer talks too much, rambles on too long and speaks too fast. He needs to learn to annunciate!! It would improve the entire podcast if his comments were limited to one minute at the intro, no comments other than a brief thank you for listening at the end. Mr Rhymes says he started years ago as a “labor of love” (his words) then asks listeners to buy a $ mic for him or send money for a subscription with vague promises of what one receives for the donation.
5. Good quality... convenient as a podcast - OTR Westerns are a great listen. I have heard other versions of Old radio shows that are hard to listen to because of the audio quality. But OTR Westerns provides each episode as a stand-alone product with very good quality for the most part. If you subscribe you can listen in the order it’s posted. There is a little banter by the host at the tail end of each episode- reading emails and providing a little info about the show.
I’ve been hooked on OTR for my ride home from work each day. Thank you OTR Westerns....!
6. Great Podcast - This is an update. I have been listening to the show for a couple of months. I love the show!!! I really enjoy listening to The Six Shooter. I never knew Jimmy Stewart had a radio program. The Six Shooter is unlike any other western I have heard. It does a wonderful job of developing people's personalities. After listening to the show it leaves you feeling good. I also enjoy Andrew's introductions to the shows. Thanks for the great shows!
7. Iffy at first - My boyfriend really got into the Westerns on this podcast. For a while he would bore me with them until one time I just listened quietly. I couldn't believe how awesome they are. Thanks for providing a venue for these snapshots of history. I do like to know when they were originally aired and a little background if there is any. No, Andrew isn't a professional announcer and that's fine by me. Keep it up! We are listening!
8. A must listen for old radio fans - This broadcast covers a lot of old shows, and the host offers background information on each show. He really works hard to provide a quality product and deserves our support. I give it four out of five stars. I'd actually give it five stars, but Mr. Rhymes' vocal affectation (which drops away when he gets excited) gets very annoying, very quickly.

1. 这位史里芬… - 听到李雪琴那期… 这位史里芬主播真的太吵了。请了嘉宾来，结果嘉宾说秒他叭叭分钟。老李问嘉宾个问题，人家还没说啥，他把自己的想法和解读塞了人家一嘴… 大哥，主播是提问和倾听的人，不是回答和揣测的人。您这么喜欢显摆自己的才华和见解，自己找个没嘉宾的场去当嘉宾啊… 李雪琴坐那儿一定在想我来这干嘛的，不然采访你吧我现在回家
2. 愿君多努力更上一层楼 - 各个单元都分出去之后，主节目真是只剩电商了。。而且各单元质量也有下降。
3. 永远的背景音 - 在需要h飞行城市，一个人的生活中感谢隶属、小伙子、hooky、Joy、小史、石老板、淼叔、青年老师、老师、武指导等等常驻主播；以及各种放鸽子的金老贼；明面上去潜心创作实际继续摸鱼的CMJ；时不时出现让我惊呼“卧槽这个你也会？！”的王师傅；跑别人电台“胡说八道”的潘采夫老师；离我很近搞得我总想找她玩的瑛姐。陪我渡过“恋情分手、熟人插刀、朋友疏远、学业不顺导致健康出现问题，身体心理上的老毛病同时复发”的这段时间，虽然不至于有治病功效，但至少让我成功戒烟（虽然节目里偶尔听到打火机“哒”的声音让我飙脏话）；至少一宿一宿的失眠夜还有一屋子人陪我熬；至少让我一个从来不会沉浸在悲伤的情绪中的我能大骂隶属矫情 因此为表彰日谈的突出贡献， 在这个不前不后的没有任何特殊意义的日子，极不情愿的伴着强烈羞耻感发出这就娇柔做作又无病自呻的表彰词（没有奖品）。希望日谈长青，努力榨干隶属的人脉资源！
4. 给李叔和伙总 - 这是我第一次给podcast写评，听过很多，都没有冲动写。谢谢李叔和伙总，还有所有日谈公园的主播，客座主播，谢谢你们，谢谢你们在这个人生阶段听到你们的节目，我觉得我马上要得抑郁症了，但是是李叔和伙总的笑声和音乐让我想起从前的自己是什么样的。我特别喜欢你们时不时请来的摇滚朋友，我爱听，我爱听他们说话，让我想起当初我也是爱音乐节的女孩。现在人在国外，身边没有朋友，让我觉得这个节目就是我的朋友。当年，当摇滚还没上电视选秀的时候，我曾经在台下，看过你们。希望有一天，我回国，还能看到你们，还能听你们唱。爱你们。
5. 打开另一扇窗 - 我还在年，不看电影的我看了摔跤吧吧吧，一直哀叹当代无文人的我惊喜的发现十年砍柴。感谢李树和小伙子打开了我几乎忽略的一扇窗，让我没有错过美丽的风景。 原来一个人只能写一篇review。今天听到moneyball 碰巧最近我也才看过 很 共鸣 人生不在乎输赢 enjoy the moment
6. 幸好碰到这个电台 - 我和女友工作分居两地，每周末我要开车个半小时(单程)去女友家。有一天鬼使神差打开播客这个从来没有用过的app，也不知道怎么就打开了日谈公园。听完两集差不多就能见到女朋友。听着李叔，小伙子和其他嘉宾的声音开车也稳当，有时候在车里听着听着就放声大笑。不过周日晚上开回家的时候从来不敢听奇妙物语 。节目加油！我也加油！尽快找到新工作搬去女友的城市！
7. 深海潜水听众前来报道 - 不知道你们看到这条评论的时候我会在哪里听你们的节目。目前处于人生的路口，明知道向左向右都是好风景但还是难免犹豫不决。每次听你们的节目在车上会思考很多很多，因为自己也是一名电影圈中学徒，听了很多节目特别想去方家胡同门口和你们聊聊。从北京离开，现在即将回归，在异国听你们的节目，想北京，想未来，想自己，想现实和梦想。谢谢你们（微博留言我是洋气的小椰子呀
8. 太好啦 - 超级良心电台，节目非常适合画图狗听！虽然不认识，但心理却觉得主播们是自己的好朋友了。你们都不知道你们陪伴我熬过了多少图纸！（个人猜测，每期节目应该是被剪掉了很多，剪掉的可以放花絮集锦吖！顺便收钱什么的hhh）

1. Blessed and Obsessed - I had no idea Toure was this brilliant and dynamic as an interviewer/journalist/author. He is blessed. And I am obsessed with this absolutely wonderful podcast. The spectrum of topics discussed are so interesting and relevant. I get comfortable and turn into a fly on the wall while listening. I love this podcast!
Bring it Toure...bring it!
2. Susannah Melvion - I, like you am a big Prince fan! More so after his transition. So I am catching up. This interview has the potential of being the best of all times, however, Susannah speaks quietly. It appears her normal voice is soft and then at times she would whisper. Was hard to listen. By contrast, your voice booms! A lot of bass. But I wanted to hear her. So if you could remaster and beef up her voice I’d appreciate it. I looked at Purple Rain a couple times this weekend to remind myself of what she looks like (Wendy-the twin). Thanks Toure!
3. So great! - Even thought I just raved about this podcast I had to write one more review to acknowledge the amazing interview this week between Toure and Eddie Glaude. Dr Glaude is a great thinker and author, and it was a joy to listen to such insightful people in conversation about James Baldwin, the current election, and the way forward.
4. Touré's Show is a must listen - Today I re listened to his interview with Joy Reid. Fantastic interview. My most favorite TV news host at MSNBC. Intellectually superior, a renowned author and incredibly personable. I know all these adjectives are sometimes ignored, but she's deserving of all and more. I hope Touré interviews her again now that she's landed the coveted PM anchor job. (BTW I've been known to tweet a lot about her getting this vacant hour)I can't wait!
5. Forced to use Patreon? - Have LOVED your podcast! Now, it feels as if your podcast content is transitioning fully onto Patreon. I do not use Patreon. If getting your full podcast is now contingent on signing up for Patreon, then regrettably I will be signing off. Loved your show, but to be pushed into another platform in order to support your content, why? I’m sure I’m not the only one.
6. DMC - The absolute best interview. Thorough. Sincere. Funny and informative. Not only does Toure understand how to talk. More importantly he knows how to LISTEN. I was captivated by this account of The Life (& near death) and how intricately the twists and turns came along during this long conversation. Hated to hear it come to a close. Bravo times - Toure you always come through
7. Let Spike Lee Work - I love the double dollies in Spike Lee Movies. It’s his signature on his work. I’m not sure why you think his fans don’t like that. But I didn’t like how hard you were pushing him to change. It’s like someone telling you that you should cut your hair. Your look is your signature. It’s why I choose to listen to your interview with Spike Lee. So let Spike Lee do his work. Leave your edits out of it.
8. Keep it up! - I absolutely love this podcast! It’s one thing to have a verity of guest and get them to open up, but the interview is a whole different interview when the host legit knows the guest’s agenda (art, beliefs, etc.). Seems like we’re listening to their conversation, not that Toure’ is asking questions that he thinks the listeners want to know the answers to. Thank you, Toure’!
Gunsmoke was a long-running old-time radio and television Western drama program set in Dodge City, Kansas during the settlement of the American West. The radio show first aired on April 26, 1952 and ran until June 18, 1961 on the CBS radio network. The series starred William Conrad as Marshal Matt Dillon, Howard McNear as Doc Charles Adams, Georgia Ellis as Kitty Russell, and Parley Baer as Deputy Chester Proudfoot. Doc’s first name and Chester’s last name were changed for the television pro...

1. Any time listening - I discovered a bunch of the old radio shows on my Sirius radio classics ch. I especially love listening to William Conrad and Gunsmoke at any time so I came here hoping for more and hit the jackpot! I feel the old Radio shows definitely beat the majority of TV nowadays.
I love going to Dodge at bedtime.
2. Gunsmoke - When I was a kid years ago I listened to Gunsmoke. They were good stories. But now that I’m old I find the stories more deeply moving and sensitive. This podcast is a great service. I’d never been to Dodge City until a few years ago. I bought something at Walmart and got a hamburger and moved on.
3. Like a friendly companion - These episodes, especially the more adult-oriented ones (like Gunsmoke) are a great companion when I’m driving, walking around town, or just want a friendly distraction. The programs are great. And Andrew’s ability to clean up the sounds some and add interesting background is a nice plus. Thanks!
4. Great listen - My husband and I both enjoy Gunsmoke. I had been listening to Andrew's podcast since it's inception. I appreciate his efforts to present and preserve radio programs. He chooses some programs that are traditional western fare but then throws in some "darker" radio fare like Gunsmoke which at times is film noir set in the west. I love to hear William Conrad's portrayal of Matt Dillon. I would have missed it if it weren't for this podcast.

1. BBC podcast intro - Someone should check the intro. The woman’s voice is cut off too soon. She seems to be saying BBC Radio Vodka. Of course it should be “BBC Radio Podcast” but the word “podcast” is cut to “podka “—- which with her lovely accent has a strong similarity to “vodka.” Just sayin’.
2. Dealing with the abortion issue. - This is now verging on the ridiculous. Not only did Chelsea take WEEKS to make a decision, now we have Ben wallowing in self-loathing and making everything worse. This is not helpful to the many people/couples who are going through the exact same situation but who don’t have the luxury of time or sympathetic family/friends. Let’s move on for pity’s sake.
3. The furor - People bemoan having to bemoan [dull, veg boxes, soup, cows, blah] about TA and then an episode as we just had on Dec drops. And all heck breaks loose. Well, good for the SWs. Twitter and TA FB groups blew up. The story touched so very many people so viscerally, and in myriad ways no less. Gee whiz, it was TA at its best.
4. Love it! - Join the millions of people who listen to this really first-rate soap and fall in love with "Ambridge," a small fictional farming community and the fascinating characters who live there. The show is socially aware, moving at times, funny at others, with excellent production values. The acting is superb and the plots often include timely depictions of social problems presented in ways which are sympathetic and educational yet also entertaining. I haven't missed an episode in years and I'm sure a great many listeners have better records than mine. It's a wonderful institution going back to which has been lovingly maintained and kept relevant.
5. My First and Only Soap Opera - I’m a red-blooded American male. I would not have considered the soap opera as a valid genre except for women. But then I met the Archers. Initially I came in for the rural soundscapes and the general emphasis on people who are neither nobles nor royals. As it happened, however, I sucked myself into the plot and characters. I miss Fridays and Sundays, but the show is literally a mainstay for me.
6. Selling Blake?!?! - I love the Archers! Been listening for years now . However yesterday’s storyline was shocking!!!! Philip talking to his son about “selling his work crew on”! Selling for a good price! Selling?!?!?! Modern day out and out slavery!!!! Perhaps in a coming episode this could be somehow explained! Surely these working men cannot be sold off?!?!? Is this a common practice in UK?!?!?! Phew! The storyline has revealed itself and it had been played out beautifully. Philip gets found out... and pays the price we can only hope . It has been a very well written storyline about an important and little talked about issue.
7. Long time listener - I’ve been listening to the Archers for at least years. I’ve lived in the US for of those years. When I first moved from the UK my parents would record the omnibus edition on tapes. It was a special a day when a package full of tapes arrived and I could catch up with life in Ambridge. I’ve listened to those tapes on road trips. I remember we were driving through the Arizona Desert when John Archer was killed! Now modern technology lets me keep up to date in real time! I’m still a big fan in spite of all the difficulties with recordings made during this pandemic. Thanks’ BBC for this podcast.
8. Home! - I grew up listening to the Archers in the s while my mum did the ironing. Now I’m living is California and still able to feel like I’m home in Cardiff. Trivia Note: I once dated a girl in the s whose family lived next door to the agricultural story editor! I have now downgraded my review to star because you mass deleted months worth of episodes I was saving for a long road trip . Heartbroken I was not able to follow the events post explosion they COVID and furious you ruined my road trip I literally checked yesterday my episodes were there, this morning I turned on on the car to find out they’d been trimmed back to days. I’m assuming you or apple did something to force the day limit without warning me that I would lose the old episodes, and I’m sure you’ll both pass the buck but just to let you know you have someone who will never buy Apple again.

Release date: 2023-02-27
1. Sci Fi from classic days - When I listen to these stories films like The Day the Earth Stood Still and War of the Worlds come to mind I’m talking about the classic black and white versions not the remakes. I enjoy each story I have listened to and it takes me back, takes me back to days when entertainment took heart and hard work to make. I’m a millennial and I love these stories and enjoy them.
2. Wish we had these today - I love these old time radio shows I wish they were making new ones today instead of all the crap they put on TV. Reality shows and superstars and dancing with the stars all just junk. I know a lot of people think these were racist and sexist but you have to take them for their time they should be updated. He does a great job of putting out all these old shows I wish he did it every day.
3. Excellent entertainment for the workday! - I echo what other reviewers have said: I love listening to these while I work. I've learned I really enjoy golden-age science fiction and I never get tired of these radio programs. As a child of the s, I never heard many radio shows, except once or twice so this podcast has exposed me to a piece of broadcasting history with which I was not previously familiar. It's also spurred me to find the material referenced, such as Galaxy Magazine and the larger archives of Mindwebs. Both are available on the internet. Just to reiterate, these are very entertaining and I highly recommend anyone who enjoys audio storytelling to give them a try. Then go find the other Relic Radio shows because I feel there's something out there for everyone. Thank you to Relic Radio for their efforts to get these shows out to us.
4. Relic Radio Yay! - I love listening to these old radio dramas at work, It's like TV shows you don't have to watch. My only complaint is that whenever there is a story from the CBS Radio Mystery Theatre it will jump podcast repeatedly and you have to keep returning the player to the CBS podcast. About every five minutes on todays podcast //
5. The most timely old-time radio you’ll ever hear! - I have a secret crush on the producer/publisher of this show is. Why? Because I find his timeliness and thoughtfulness of the choosing of the episodes that play each week fascinating, to say the least. Somehow, he manages to reach back into the expansive archives of historical sci-fi/weirdness radio, and cherry-pick an episode with a story line that is somehow perfectly relevant to what’s going on now, in our ‘modern’ near- world. I am vastly impressed with the ease (by which it seems) that the organizer chooses each week’s installment; as well as the wry, thorough, and dark-knowledge of both past and present society, & records thereof, that this gentleman must possess. All in all, I must suggest that you download and subscribe to this podcast. And contribute to the Relic Radio website/Patreon, if you have the ability to. It’s worth your time, and your money. I promise!!!
6. One of my favorite podcasts - If you like scifi this is the best of the podcasts. Not old enough to have heard these originally, but since I discovered this mode of entertainment, my TV usage has gone way down. I can do other things while listening to these. Great for a long car ride too. Make that mile drive to visit relatives a whole lot more pleasant.
7. Always high quality fare. - Even when the Sci-Fi is at its cheesiest and "Sciffiest," these episodes are big fun. Some are serious and thought-provoking, and some are so cornball as to be laugh-out-loud funny, but they're never a waste of time. Sample some episodes, and I think you'll become a subscriber.
8. Keep At It! Also... - I was able to convince my School's Creative writing group into helping me make something like these and I already have an idea. I call it "Creature From The Freezer". Its about a team of Cops (two men, one women) who are investigating the murder (a very brutal, gory murder, I might add) within the City's Natural History museum. The Museum's Owner and his friend the Janitor reveal that this has happened many years before by a horrific monster the've kept in cold storage within the deepest receses of the building.
I wanted to know (Given that you work with this sort of thing) if you could lend me a few pointers for production. : )
At the Penumbra, you might follow Juno Steel, a brooding, sharp-witted private eye on Mars, as he tangles with an elusive homme fatale, tracks dangerous artifacts of an ancient alien civilization, and faces his three greatest fears: heights, blood, and relationships. Or you might enter the world of the Second Citadel, where the merciless Sir Caroline must corral a team of emotionally distraught all-male knights to defend their city against mind-manipulating monsters...even the ones they’ve f...

1. Obsessed! - This was my first experience with audio dramas and it shifted my life so drastically. The entire story of Detective Juno Steel is so immersive. The soundtrack is stunning, and the storytelling is so detailed. I genuinely grew attached to the characters. I listened to the whole first season in a few days!
2. Incredible Audiodrama! - The Penumbra is amazing - great voice acting, music/audio, writing, etc. first episodes are a little less focused because they’re more like multiple short stories, and then you get into two main arcs and they’re both so different and so fun! You get fantasy and space and pirates and investigations and romance — what’s not to love? Plus ALL the LGBTQ stories which are beautiful. Highly recommended!
3. Phenomenal Storytelling - (Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t left a review yet! Been listening for years and Totally thought I had already!) The folks at the Penumbra Podcast really know what they’re doing. I personally only follow the Juno Steele story arc (nothing personal against Second Citadel, it’s just not my genre preference) and by gods, it’s some of the best fiction I’ve ever come across, in ANY media format. The action and adventure combined with deeply realistic and flawed characters, not to mention the fantastic queer representation- no other podcast comes close to it for me, and I listen to a LOT of podcasts. There are lines from the Juno Steele universe that I seriously have imprinted in my mind forever and have repeated to myself over and over when I’m in a bad place. And they help. It’s not often you find fiction that can actually change how you think and feel as a person for the better, but these stories and characters have affected me deeply, permanently, and helped me through dark, weird and hard times.
I seriously can’t recommend this podcast enough.
And thank you to the creators for sharing these worlds with us.
4. The sheer number of times this show has made me cry is not okay - Phenomenal characters, and shockingly relatable storylines that have not-so-subtly helped me to reconcile with past traumas. Olala helped me reconcile with fears about death, Sir Damien helped me to cope with chronic anxiety, the most recent episode as of // forced me to acknowledge my anxieties about growing apart from people, the list goes on. /
5. Juno Steel is Great and Worthy of your Time - This is only for the Juno part of this podcast. I really like the long ongoing slow burn of the story. I don’t find the outer space portion super convincing and wish they had leaned into that and made a more compelling world or just done it earth bound. Good sound design, acting and music makes this very entertaining.
6. Juno Steel Review - Juno Steel is a truly amazing story with some of (if not The) best queer rep ive seen in modern media. It means a lot to me and aside from that the story lines are very well executed. It gets pretty dark at times in its satire and exploration of late stage capitalism and the kind of mental trauma that environment inflicts, but it also displays a good sense of humor and levity when needed and when appropriate. But also multiple trans/nonbinary Main chatactsrs(!) multiple arospec and an ace Main character (!) complex sapphic and achillean relationships (!)
7. Bussin’ / - this show has gotten me through some tough times and just the excitement and serotonin this show gives me is top quality like one moment i’ll be sad then put this on and be like “YASSS QUEEN SLAYYY WE ALL SUPPORT AND LOVE U JUNO" or "NUREYEV GIRLBOSSING, HE’S BACK GET IT GIRLBOSS"
8. My favorite podcast - I haven’t listened to much of the second citadel series, but the Juno series alone is worth giving this stars. From the beautiful music to the balance of humor and drama. I love this podcast so so much. The acting is stellar, the writing is genius. When I listened to this the first time, I was in a really dark place and this podcast quickly became somewhat of a comfort series to listen to. And just to put in a personal note, the themes for certain characters are so so good. When Peter is listening to Brahma, or Vespa’s theme in season for her episode. Or the song when Buddy and Vespa reunite. My fav is tools of rust by Anjimile. Without exaggeration, I cannot recommend this podcast enough.
RelicRadio.com presents tales of the strange and bizarre, the weird and the wicked. Stories not necessarily of the supernatural, but of the unnatural. Join us for Strange Tales, featuring radio drama at its most mysterious and unusual. Abnormal old time radio!
Release date: 2023-03-05
1. Just as advertised - These particular old radio shows on this podcast are absolutely (unintentionally?) bonkers in regards to their plots. The episodes were produced by the usual weekly old-time genre shows of mystery, thriller and horror stories, but clearly the writers went entirely off the rails in these scripts. The plots are completely mental. Good for us listeners whoever was doing quality control or continuity checks on these broadcasted episodes seems to have left the room or gotten blind drunk that week! : D
2. Fond memories - I grew up listening to “CBS Mystery Theater” on the homeward stretch after family visits to my grandparents. It gave me a love for old time radio, and Strange Tales The Horror provide a wonderful weekly fix of nostalgic thrills. I particularly enjoy the eclectic approach to material. I’d never heard of some of these shows until your podcast - and I used to collect old cassettes of mystery/horror radio programs, so your source material is deep and wide. Thank you for all Relic Radio stuff!
3. I love this show - I have subscribed to many of his radio shows. They are always fun, thrilling, and my favorite thing to put on while I work on my crafts. Young, like me who has only heard tales of the golden age of radio, or middle age, when you can temper the programs coming back on in the ’s, or if you are the part of the golden generation and have fond memories of these playing while you did housework or them being on after school, old time radio has something for you. I think that this piece of history should be shared to every generation like a great book.
4. It will thrill you a little, and chill you a little. - Strange Tales is an excellently curated weekly podcast with incredibly high-quality OTR stories that border on the mysterious. The tagline “stories not necessarily of the supernatural, but of the unnatural” is perfect - you will find creepy tales, some in the form of mysteries and others of the spine-chilling horrific. The team at RelicRadio have produced a well-selected collection that surprises every week with stories that are all reminiscent of “that Rod Serling show” and come from a wide variety of programs throughout the history of OTR and around the globe. I donated to the program, and look forward to the show every week!
5. Another strong Relic Radio entry - I really look forward to every new episode of this podcast. It's not too different from Thriller or The Horror in its material -- a sort of half-step between the two, in fact -- but that distinction makes the difference. Many of these stories fall into the category of "Weird" fiction from the s -- not quite horror, and not quite crime, but something worthy of consideration on its own merits. Besides, it's just a fine and fun podcast.
6. Relic Radio! - Having been a fan of Old Time Radio since I was a kid, I have listened to a lot of programs and shows. Relic Radio does such a wonderful job of presenting each episode and having a fully functional website that's easy to navigate and find what you're looking for. My favorites are The Horror and Strange Tales, with each week comes another episode from another great show as if they were just written and performed! I love it. Thanks!
7. Wow - There are many things iv saved over the years, for when I grew up and had kids. I have year old teenage mutant ninja turtle toys I have saved for my future kids, to share with them. Radio shows were something my dad and I enjoyed when I was a kid. From years old on, my dad and I couldn't find any radio shows. My dad has passed, I'm with two kids of my own. It's a dream come true to share radio shows with MY kids. Thank you. Very much.
8. Best of the best!!! - I subscribe to tons of different OTR, NTR, science fiction, and horror podcasts and those from Relic Radio are my favorites. Always the best, most interesting, and most unusual stories. With the Strange Tales podcast, Relic Radio has really outdone themselves, I couldn't believe all of the delicious stories all in one place. Someone is really working some heavy duty overtime to find these gems! Thank you so much for all of your hard work Relic Radio, this podcast is the best of the best!!!
Crime stories from the golden age. Old Time Radio is filled with cops, robbers, and private investigators...Lets reopen the cases and hear these great stories again!
Release date: 2023-02-22
1. Excellent Resource! - Raised by my grandfather who was blind and who subsequently had audio entertainment delivered to the house, I grew up listening to all the OTR shows that he had enjoyed when he was younger. I was thrilled in recent years to come across the vast selection curated here by Relic Radio. While I enjoy all of the different shows, Case Closed is my favorite. I've always had a particular affinity for the old detective stories, and I get a kick out of listening to procedurals from years ago. If you're new to the genre, I highly recommend seeking episodes featuring Sam Spade or Richard Diamond, as they're just good pulpy fun with hilarious dialogue and all of the noir tropes we've come to know and love.
2. Just exactly what I wanted, delivered to my home for free! - Could it get any better than this? Mysteries that are acted out for us, and really good stories and actors, for the most part. My motto, for years, has been that the best things about the th century were: Radio, Hot Showers, and Velcro. (Bring it, if you disagree!) (Microwave ovens and cell phones are in hot contention, but I wrote this a long time ago, when I was a sailor and mom to a tiny person). I LOVE old time radio, because the pictures are so much better than tv or movies. Rock on!
3. I'm glad I found this podcast! - I stumbled across Relic Radio some while back, and I've been slowly adding more and more of the shows to my podcast library. I held off on Case Closed for a while, thinking it would be little more than cheesy serials about over-the-top detectives. I'm really glad I changed my mind. Wow, these are some really fine stories. And sure, some of them are silly and campy, but most are solid detective stories (and even the silly ones are worth a listen). I hope to hear many more from this podcast.
4. Why did they stop Radio Shows? - These are great. My Flatscreen fried from the inside so I needed some form of entertainment when I was laying down to sleep. Decided to try these and they are great. I love the sci-fi and Case Closed shows.Casey Crime Photographer and The Saint are my favorites.More Vincent Price PLEASE! I want as many Saint episodes as possible.
5. Cast closed - Yes,I agree this is the best format of OTR's.
I have been a fan for years. The C.C. Series always put's out as good a copy and as clear a copy as
Possible Thanking you,thanks.
I love old time radio shows mostly for the writing,the acting(generally),
But I love the time of half hour. The shows are like short stories. I could go on but won't.
Please, keep up the good work. Angie Bell
PS thanks for no commercial
6. Always a new old gem to discover - This series is as well put together as The Horror! -- if the host has any bias, it's hard to find. Thank you for finding Barrie Craig... I used to see William Gargan (sp?) in anti-smoking ads as a kid and hearing him in his acting prime brings some sort of karmic relief. Candy Matson is like the Rosie the Riveter of private eyes. Three cheers for all Jim does to bring us these unique treasures from yesteryear.
7. Great! - These OTR detective stories are just great. They take me back to a wonderful time in my life and I always loved talk radio. These episodes are very diverse so I get to hear all of the old time detectives. Not so much
mayhem as todays tv detectives, love the plots especially Johnny Dollar, Nero Wolf, and Rocky Jordan. Thanks to all those that have made this possible
8. The host is hot - I love the host of this and the other Relic Radio programs ;) But, besides that, I NEVER thought I would get into the detective dramas (outside of Sam Spade, of course), but this podcast has be hooked! I get all giddy whenever I see a new one on my board. Thank you for compiling such a great collection and for not having the annoying voice and advertisments of the other well-known vintage radio podcastser. xo
