Customer Reviews

Makes Driving Enjoyable!

Wonderfully entertaining! The shows are funny, poignant and informative. Thanks Live Wire!

Just like a Hot Pocket...

I like the filling, but not the crust. If you can get past the smug, smarmy and self-congratulatory tone of the show, they actually feature pretty talented and entertaining guests. I'm not a fan of Prarie Home Companion, and Live Wire! verges dangerously close the same schtick at times. But hey, that may be exactly what floats your boat.

So Glad To Find LiveWire! Podcast

Been a big fan of the live show from early on but never find myself at home when it airs on Saturday night. Great to be able to listen to the shows when I want. I love the Faces For Radio sketch comedy bits. And to see Courtenay is to love Courtenay...
