Eavesdropping on America is a collaboration of radio producers and anthropologists at the Sydney Habermann and Judith Brownstein-Habermann School of Anthropology at the University of the State of Idaho. The school's syndicate of anthropologists make field recordings from around the country of Americans talking. Then, the radio producers comb through and find the most fascinating or illuminating tape that represents what Americans are like and what they're all talking about.

Super Deep and Very Unique
If you've heard enough of the usual, then this is the show for you. It is sometimes too real, sometimes hilarious, but always entertaining. I should warn you that you will never be able to listen to another podcast the same after hearing an episode Eavesdropping on America. I want more!
Dark and Funny Stuff
I like my podcasts like I like my coffee—independently sourced and bad for my teeth. That’s why Eavesdropping on America works for me. It can work for you, too.
While EOA, as I like to call it, can be rather hilarious, there's still something slightly disquieting about this podcast; I suspect it's all the sound. Either way, do NOT listen to it blasting from your IROC Z Camaro while cruising slowly down the strip, because you'll look like a douche. But that's not EOA's fault.
