Can’t Stop Listening

The podcast that got me back into podcasts. Every episode holds my complete attention throughout. The content is interesting and thought provoking. They are well written and edited. The topics are relevant and important. As someone who recently completed an undergrad in psychology, I’m a bit biased. The structure of the episodes in this series has helped me have more effective conversations with family members about topics in psychology as it provides framework for issues. This allows me to add details I recall from my courses when necessary without losing others. I am recommending this series to everyone.

Super interesting

Great storytelling, great topics. So intriguing at times. I’d definitely say it has made me broaden my perspective and it has sparked many deep and interesting conversations with my closest friends.

Intellectually dishonest and pointless

The first few episodes were interesting, but always more of a tease than real digging into otherwise interesting subjects. So many words for so little substance in the end. The host often makes some completely speculative bold statements which makes this very hard to listen to for someone coming to learn something. If you’re here for the story telling, you better really like the hosts because they are clearly very into hearing they own voice making pseudo poetry though lingering purring sound. Once I heard them, I couldn’t unhear them and stopped listening. That was a few years ago. Last week I thought I would give it another chance during a road trip. I listened to an episode called The Profile. Someone impersonates the host bf and.. that’s it. If you think there will be an interesting investigation to find out who that is, forget about it. Just the host going through a therapy session with you as a therapist, free of charge. She even makes up a fake interview with a random actor. So now that we’ve established that this is not journalism either, what is it? Some self centered fiction writer with access to a microphone who thinks everyone should care about her life.
