Heavyweight, how I love thee.

Let me count the ways. It’s irreverent, poignant, revealing, and often riveting. Storytelling that is both so specific and so universal at the same time. I missed it so much when it was gone, relistened to a bunch of them in the absence of new episodes, and am so glad new episodes have resumed. Jonathan Goldstein is magic. Welcome back.

My Favorite

I can’t believe how much I look forward to new episodes of Heavyweight...I found the Diaries to be tedious and didn’t listen, but when the new season started up again I was sucked back in. What wonderful stories! Thank you.

Bait and switch

I was all set for a new episode of Heavyweight but instead I got something that doesn’t interest me. I understand that making a new show each week is a lot of work. Maybe Heavyweight should just alternate with Reply All. I can live with that if you would just be honest about it.
