Since 1981, I’ve been afraid of everything. Starting now, I’m trying everything. Like taking a taxi, joining a gym or going to a sushi bar. Maybe you’re afraid of them too? Let’s get afraid together. http://getafraid.com Theme music by EfeflowBeats.

I'm afraid to say I like this one...
This show is hilarious. It's short and sweet, but with Jed's narration you'll feel like you've been taken along his excruciatingly painful adventures from start to finish. Expect to gasp, to laugh, and to hang on to his every word just to know how it all ends. Excellent writing, editing, and production. I wouldn't be surprised if this show becomes a household name.
You'll like this if you enjoy self obsession
This podcast is like This American life minus the story. Minus giving you someone to care about. The narrator in this story enjoys spending time staring at his navel a lot and explaining how somehow his fear and experience is so much greater and something that people should learn from. One thing you can hear in the story is desperation. He's begging you to find him interesting and smart. Unfortunately he's neither. This is just one more podcast where a podcast we believes he's got something special. Like when everyone had a blog or a you tube video. Listen to this if you want to hear about someone's personal self obsession and waste 13 minutes of your life.
This show is thoughtfully produced and brought a smile to my face! Jed is a very talented storyteller, and his fears and anxieties are told in such a way that it's easy to connect with him and relate, if you've ever been faced with a new situation (which everyone has).
This is one of the few personal journal podcasts I've found that doesn't sound self-indulgent. In fact, Jed has a modesty about him that's automatically appealing and a wonderful addition to my regular podcast line-up. Keep up the great work!
