This is Hell! is a weekly radio interview show broadcast without the virtue of money or the vice of political agenda. Every Saturday morning, your bitter, blind, broke, gap-toothed host Chuck Mertz works off his hangover talking to the journalists, authors and activists working to make this world a slightly less hellish place. And we do it all live, uninterrupted and unedited, Saturdays at 9 AM Central on WNUR 89.3FM Chicago and podcast to the world shortly after.

Customer Reviews

Good but can get a bit dry.

I realize that they are trying to fill up several hours so the occasional lull in interesting conversation is expected. For the most part I think it is one of the best political podcasts out there. It takes on issues others are afraid to, has guests that most people avoid, and covers news items from a point of view your are not used to. I listen every week now and hope you keep doing what you are good at... rocking the boat.

Awesome progressive radio with humor

There's nothing on radio (or podcast) like this show. Chuck combines silly, relaxed humor and chit-chat with some of the most interesting and provocative interviews on radio. He obviously takes effort to read his guests' work in detail, and he comes up with great questions (if a bit long at times). Well worth the download.

My weekly intellectual fix.

In an age of 10 second soundbites, gibbering cable-news pundits and mindless sloganeering, Chuck Mertz brings back the real by conducting in-depth interviews with knowledgable guests that you don't get to hear in the corporate mainstream media, glued together with a quick wit and dark humor. A willingness to do the research, ask the tough questions, and most importantly, let his guests provide the nuance and depth that critical issues require -- all set Chuck apart from a wide field of other current events shows. If you've outgrown Wolf Blitzer's beard and are ready for something more substantial, This is Hell should be required listening.
