Great Storytelling Podcast

Really enjoyed listening to these stories - hope they will make more soon!


If you can't get enough of The Moth, Story Collider or other storytelling podcasts, Porchlight is just what you need! The episodes are 30-60 minutes long and feature several storytellers. With this amount of volume, the storytelling quality doesn't always stand up to The Moth (a surprising number of people have no idea how to end a story or to circle back to a central theme). However, I'm never disappointed in an episode.
The hosts of the show are wonderful. They give a small introduction and then let the storytellers do the talking. There is no annoying wasted time or pointless musical interludes- just enough to help your brain transition from one story to the next. I can't wait to hear more!

announcer competition

i think it's very interesting. my only issue is that it seems the announcers are competing to speak, it almost feels uncomfortable.

on another note, @bigtimestoryfan's review/rating is not reflective of the podcast itself. A podcast should not feel the need to censor itself in any way. If the podcast states that it's a storytelling podcast, and has explicit material, you should be prepared for ANYTHING, and not get upset at the podcast for its bluntness.
