One of my Faves

Cabinet of Curiosities is one of my favorite podcasts. I prefer it to his other two. As with the others I often have to rewind it, as his voice will easily put me to sleep. I often listen to episodes more than once because of this and with this one it’s easier to do, as they’re shorter than his other ones. I also like the idea of telling short little anecdotes without really following a story teller format. Many don’t even have endings (which I love) and if you don’t like it episode then at least you didn’t waste much time.

That being said I would rather only one or two great episodes a month than two a week, every week, regardless of quality. He’s really saturated the market with his work, which is one of my biggest complaints with him. I give this show 9 stars out of 10.

American television sound bites

I have tried more than once to listen to this podcast, and each time it is incredibly narrow minded, with an edge of high school spirit to be cool. It sounds like a constant ten second sound bite trying to sell the tellers modern versions of totally old stories. Aaron could do so much better! Use your skills of story for the growth of spiritual tellers of some kind - any kind - other than sensational media.

Disappointing

It started off good but now the episode are extremely lackluster. Find myself disappointed after each new episode these days. It’s like they’re at the bottom of the barrel of curiosities.
