Brings poetic voice to the new age of podcasting

This is a show that really embodies the unique, multi-sensory method of storytelling in the unfolding golden age of radio. I started listening because the title, “Anxious Machine,” caught my eye, and kept on listening for diverse topics and Rob’s soothing, intelligent voice and crisp editing that brings clarity and perspective to my day. I’d recommend this podcast to anyone who is looking for a moment of meditative inspiration in their busy lives.

In my head.

This last episode: Electric Torture Devices. It was as if... he heard my thoughts, my mumblings at 1, 2, 3 in the morning. Ideas on some nights, frantic, genius ideas! And then... other nights... “what was I thinking??”

Id JUST invested in building a tiny recording studio (errr room, closet.) in the back of my family’s house. During what I think was a manic phase I invested in recording equipment, mics, etc. I wanted SO MUCH to just tell stories. Then that voice in my head said: for what? Who’ll care? You.dont.matter.

Then I heard this episode.

Then I heard my own voice through his.

I still want to tell stories. And listening to anxious machine... I know I can do it.
Regardless of who listens or doesn’t listen.

This was supposed to be a review but... I turned it into a self indulgent little conversation in my head.

Thank you. Thank YOU for making this. For recording it. And for putting it out there so knuckleheads like me can hear it and know: we’re ok... even when we’re not.

5 stars isn’t enough.

Intriguing and addicting

This podcast is fantastic. It makes you think about yourself and the world around you. Helps you appreciate all of the things and all of the people around you.
Each episode leaves me with a great sense of satisfaction and a little bit more hope for the sometimes dark world we live in. I love it. Please make more episodes!
