Customer Reviews

Haddie needs to tone it way down.

If your idea of a fun podcast is an hour of listening to a Zooey Deschanel wannabe, then this show is for you.
Honestly, Haddie needs to cool it down quite a bit.
I'm quite sick of this tired male/female dynamic of the serious sounding man talking to the ditsy
goofball woman.
It's downright insulting.
Great idea for a show, terrible execution.

Really bad

The dynamics between Dan and Haddie are just terrible. They sound like 12 year olds trying to do a podcast - very disappointing as most 5by5 shows are great.

Not quite there

I'm a HUGE fan of most of the 5by5 shows. I listen to all the main shows, as well as other shows on other podcast networks, so I feel this is a fair opinion.

The concept is great. I love the idea of having a daily show instead of having to wait a week for a certain podcast to air again. The chemistry is not quite there. Haddie, I'm sure is great, but I feel like she's either nervous or isn't prepared for the show. Episode 2, Dan talks about "Color" the failed iOS app and he asks Haddie if she's ever used it. She just agrees and says, "I use Color all the time." You could sense the uncertainty in her voice. I couldn't help but cringe.

I'll give it a couple more episodes to let them find a groove, but I have yet to listen the whole way through.
