Do yourself a favour

John takes your hand and guides you to the depths of your conciousness. Beautiful, emotional, intense and eye-opening this show makes you think about what truly matters. Often drawing from personal experiences and perfectly complemented by detailed research, John covers a varied set of topics from the completely mundane to the awe-inspiring. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a higher appreciation of our human experience.

Well written and performed, occasionally sappy

These audio essays are enjoyable to listen to and concern a large number of different topics, although not as diverse as the title would suggest. Sports and literature, as well as US-American culture have heavy representation. A better title would be: the John Green universe reviewed. I don’t think the podcast is bad so I won’t give it low stars, but I do have some gripes with it. Gripes I wouldn’t have if the show were not almost great.

I know John doesn’t think he takes himself too seriously, but on occasion he does, leading him into needlessly sentimental musings. In The latest episode on You’ll Never Walk Alone he says that the song is ‘cheesy’, but ‘also, so true’ - which is nowhere near an antonym. Cheesy things are often clearly true, so very unpoeticly true that stating it feels very unnecessary. He then proceeds with the most cheesy and sentimental description of the song and its use imaginable. He does this often: criticising a general view on a topic, and then expressing that same view in other, very smart and eleborate words.
Another example from the same episode: it starts with him stating that he doesn’t want to focus on the pandemic, to take a break from it, but then devotes quite some time on his melancholy about it and even weaves it into both topics.

Still, it’s fun to listen to and does a pretty good job at looking at small topics in detail. I enjoy it. I give it 4 stars.

Simply wonderful

Each episode is hopeful and heart-wrenching at the same time. This podcast offers depth in a world filled with surface-level entertainment. It’s vying with Harry Potter and the Sacred Text for my favourite podcast. Highly recommended.
