Customer Reviews

Good first episode!

Really impressed with the Schumer interview in the first episode. I like that it's shorter than the Marc Maron type interview shows (which I still like) and punchier than some of the friendly chat shows.


Enjoy today's podcast thank you and please keep up the good work!

Great new podcast

For anyone who has followed Chotiner's interviews, no surprises that this is a fantastic podcast.
