Customer Reviews


Best new podcast I've heard in a long time, combining laser-sharp writing with audio engineering that is as good as anything you have heard out of the Radiotopia-verse. But what puts this over the top is the specificity of the mission: to chronicle startling, fresh tales from the most under appreciated city in the country. Recommended for anyone who top-notch storytelling, secret histories, and audio innovation

This may surprise you.

A podcast about home? In Los Angeles? I live in Portland, Oregon, what do I know from LA? And What do I care?

Was I wrong, and in a big way.

A home is a home anywhere, and it’s really about the people who inhabit these homes anyway, people like us and people not like us. There’s a universality to these stories that anyone can relate to, whether you are in LA, Portland, a suburb in Atlanta or a gulag in Siberia. So start off with this fascinating idea, look and listen inside the walls of these homes for the stories they tell and wrap it all together with a guy like Bill Barol, who as they say, can make the phonebook sound interesting and you end up with a great podcast. Give this a listen. You’ll be glad you did.

Like a warm comforter with a joy buzzer...

This podcast combines all the humanity of This American Life with a quick wit and compassionate eye to create something unique. It's like being invited into a neighbors house you never gave much notice to before only to find the owner has fascinating stories he's been waiting to tell you. By turns insightful and funny, comforting and surprising, it left me glad I was invited in.
