Customer Reviews

Extremely Compelling!

While listening to the first episode, I quickly realized that Laura Hurwitz's writing isn't the type of genre that I would typically choose for myself, and I was prepared to dismiss the podcast all together. By the second episode though, I had to admit that while not my usual genre of choice, there's something extremely compelling and beautiful about the stories that Laura tells that sticks with me throughout the week and leaves me wanting more. There's a really beautiful contrast in the harsh realities that a lot of her characters face and the soft, personal way she presents things. Start this podcast at your own risk, because it's unexpectedly addictive!


laura has contagious positive energy, and the stories are always compelling and brilliantly told.

Cheesy Chair

This podcast had a strong start but went down hill FAST! It's strayed very far from its original mission. Listening to the arrogant perpetually single daughter with a speech impediment plus extreme lazy vocal fry is like nails on a chalk board.
We like hearing you read your stories and love hearing your guest writers too. Please no more of your son providing you daughter dating advice. It's weird in a creepy way. Those episodes are really bad! No one is here to hear your son or daughter read classic fiction either.
"Owwwe Ha Huck Huaaa Herrr Hah Hahhh Owwwweee Thatttt waaaasss just great!" My you are very big on that regional NE bizarre yat laugh! Of course you think you child is all that but it's obvious why she's single. Not funny or entertaining.
My dear you are not your son and I'm afraid that podcasting just is not a family business. I commend you for wanting to cash in but you just don't have the goods (the description says: author Laura Hurwitz reads you a story continued week to week and that just hasn't been happening past the first few episodes) and those you use as filler just do not cut it.
AND NOW you want the listening AUDIENCE to send in material for you and your unattached daughter to read and guffaw over to each other over. Please go back to the podcast you present in your description.
DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR MONEY! No talent and this podcast is misrepresented.
A podcast about a 30 something living at home unable to connect with anyone and finding fault in every man who takes her out just isn't a good podcast.
