Hi! Welcome to Storytime with Seth Rogen, where every week Seth asks somebody, “Do you have a great story? And if you do, will you tell it on my podcast?” That’s it. That’s the concept. But the results are so much more than that.
This is not a typical comedian-hosted chat show! Each episode plays like a little audio documentary, a feature presentation unto itself, with supporting interviews and archival tape woven into each story with a rhythmic editing style. Not all the stories are knee-slap funny, and not all the guests are known. From a near-death grizzly bear fight in remote Canada, to a life-altering celebrity encounter in a movie theatre, to the revelation of a family secret, Storytime starts with Seth’s curiosity about people and the world, and always ends up in an unexpected place.

Very good, but is it over with?
Really a surprisingly fantastic podcast
I love Seth Rogen as much as the next guy, so I figured his podcast would be funny and stoner-y. I did not expect that every single episode would make me laugh and cry and laugh and cry. Oh my god! The storytelling is so well-crafted! The actual stories are undefinable and each one goes in a wildly different unpredictable direction! Seriously, please, I cannot get anyone in my life to listen to this podcast because they all go, “Seth Rogen? Isn’t he a crazy anti-vax person?” and I go “No, that’s a different guy, this is Seth RogEn,” and they go “the guy from pineapple express? That stoner? Is it a stoney stoner podcast?” And i go “If it were, it would still be the best stoney stoner podcast of all time, but no, it is nothing like that, please just give it a listen!” But they don’t and I have noone to talk to about it. Sideways frowny! I think you should binge the whole thing right now just in case Seth RogEEEEEEn comes through with another season. Which, alas, I think he is not. But I can dream. And you can listen for the first time! Go, you! No, seriously — GO LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST. IT IS EXCELLENT.
Is this still a thing? It was a good premise & well produced.
