Lovely and funny and sweet

This is my favorite podcast, there is nothing else like it. Well-written, well-acted, excellent sound —they have vocalists and an orchestra!—and loveably oddball characters. The stories are delightfully absurd with a touch of sweet sincerity that grounds the main characters in a way that made me care about their storylines and really want to hear the next episode.

Wooden Overcoats is currently producing the last season. I look forward to it but am also sad that it will end after this. At least there will always be four seasons worth of repeat listening.

The best podcast I’ve ever heard!

This is my favourite audio drama. Each episode is so full of heart and never ceases to put a smile on my face. The cast is phenomenal and the storytelling is immersive. I can’t recommend Wooden Overcoats enough! I’m sincerely hoping we get another season because I’ve listened to all the episodes quite a few times now. Until then, I guess I’ll just go another round!

Funny and touching

I feel strongly enough about this show to leave my first review ever. Wooden Overcoats is beyond charming, creating a world of characters so funny, so quirky and so endearing that Piffling Vale becomes a place you want to re-visit again and again. The season 3 finale was so beautiful it moved me to tears. It’s a show with true heart.
