Brilliant, brilliant stuff.
One of the most entertertaining podcasts/radio programs out there. Wonderful storytelling; a marvellous weekly examination of the human condition. I love it and am completely addicted. Can't wait for each new instalment...keep up the great work, Ira... from an Aussie-Yank-o-phile...;-)
Best Podcast available
The stories this show tells never cease to interest me. Even topics that sound somewhat boring, like a story on the American economy and how it collapsed, have me listening intentively. No other show can do that. Whoever is in charge of the editing for these shows, is really good at their job. It's perfect combination of narration, a soft soundtrack and interviews have me intregued. Just give one episode a try, you'll be hooked!
Excellent show every week
Every show is really interesting - it varies from serious and complex to quirky and light-hearted. I've been listening to this podcast regularly for over a year and I look forward to it every week. You won't be disappointed!
