Winner of their own award!!!!

The WINNER of the 2021 Arkansas Times Best Podcast in Arkansas! Congratulations on winning your own contest, guys! Well done.

When you’re listening, you’ll never believe hours of preparation and production goes into each episode. You’ll hardly even believe these two are using microphones to record rather than recording straight into and an original Edison wax cylinder! And don’t let the graphics fool you. Even though the eyes might want to say those are two gents on the artwork, your ears are going to tell you one of hosts is a lady.

Whether you’re homesick from living out of state, or you’d just like to hear tiny ramblings on the subject of bits of Arkansas goings-on that often trail off and go unresolved, you e got yourself a favorite new podcast.

If you want pristine and clean studio quality audio with nothing but all Arkansas focused news and wacky happenings, conversations with sex workers, comedians, graffiti artists and activists, creators…

...come find the Not For Prophets Stereo Podcast. But only if you want something besides your grandpa’s old, dusty old radio show.

Sick of listening to snorting dog during broadcast

Best Arkansas news show but I’m sick of listening to Max’s slurping snorting dog. Apparently being professional means letting your dog run the house. I’m guessing he barks all night too so the neighbors can enjoy how untrained he is. I own 3 dogs and don’t feel I have to take them to work. Unfollowing show and will find something more professional . Sheesh

Love it

I'm in Oregon and listen every week. My dad lived in Arkansas and died in January from Covid. So nice to feel connected to his world but from a perspective that I can appreciate.
