Let Me Ascertain You, from award-winning investigative theater company The Civilians, is a weekly podcast series of performances crafted from interviews with real people about current and controversial topics, including Occupy Wall Street, Atlantic Yards, the adult entertainment industry, Evangelical Christianity, and more. Each episode illuminates surprising, unusual, funny, and thought-provoking stories collected from interviews with a wide range of different people. The series, taken from live performances, includes songs and scenes from past plays and current projects, plus sneak peaks at works in development. The Civilians is the center for investigative theater, supporting new work created from inquiries into the most vital questions of the present. The company, now in its eleventh season, has performed Off-Broadway and in over 40 cities nationally and internationally. "The Civilians deserve credit as top-notch journalists, creating portraits that are vivid, agenda-free and marked by a benevolent irony." –The New Yorker

Customer Reviews


There are definitely some poignant moments, but the porn ones are hilarious! Definitely worth the listen!

Lovin' it!

This is totally unique content. Hilarious, poignant, and insightful into topics that I realized I didn't even know that much about! Always looking forward to the next episode. Many thanks to The Civilians!

Wow, awesome!

I've seen the Civilians perform a bunch of times in New York, and I'm always impressed. The performances walk that fine line of portraying people—and getting you to laugh at what you're seeing—without lapsing into Office-style mockery. Even when I think I'm not into the topic, I'm won over by the end. And Michael Friedman's setting of the interviews to lyrics are always so smart, and often heart-breaking.

My favorites are the Pretty Filthy episodes (about the adult entertainment industry—mind-blowing!) and the Atlantic Yards episode, about the effect of the new stadium on a neighborhood in Brooklyn.
