Sooo goood

Wow. I came across this podcast unexpectedly and I’m so glad I did. What a great story teller, and so funny too. Episode 15 made me laugh and cry. Im looking forward to listening to the rest of the episodes.

That’s gonna be a no for me

The host comes off very arrogant and one of those people that think they’re funny. The first episode I listened to was the one with him making Alex’s friends a wedding tape. He seems to try to annoy Alex constantly

Absolutely Excellent

I can’t believe I wasn’t already subscribed to Heavyweight. I’m a long time listener of This American Life, and this show is of the same calibre, and in some ways surpasses TAL. Honestly, what I love about this show is what I miss about the old TAL. And the host has a wonderfully neurotic and dry sense of humor that someone like myself can relate to and laugh out loud with. Brilliant storytelling, editing and production. A top-shelf podcast that feels like we should be paying for it. Luckily, there are generous sponsors.
