Full-hearted Podcast of Creativity, Healing, and Community

As others have said, when I started this I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. Deirdre, the MC and who we hear for the majority of the first couple eps, is very much trying to Put On a Show, and it’s not working. But as the layers get unpeeled, as her vulnerability becomes clear, and as we meet the other characters, this show clicks. It becomes something that wears its entire heart on its sleeve, awkwardly, vulnerably, bravely. It elevates those needing a hand, it cuts on the light for those in the dark. And tbh there are a couple (minor) storytelling elements that don’t click with me, but gosh on the whole this show is powerful. Moved me to tears multiple times by acknowledging the heartache of nostalgia and growing old, and providing comfort with full sincerity.

Also there’s some seriously catchy tunes!

Absolutely wonderful

This is a podcast that knows how create atmosphere. The sound design, script, and performances combine to make it feel as if you’re hearing an intimate recording from a real town not too far away your own. Rosemary Hills is a lovingly designed little world and its few inhabitants are utterly charming. It’s mysterious, funny, poetic, occasionally spooky, and all around heartwarming. (Just wait until you hear the music!) If you’re a fan of character-driven fiction, you will love It Makes A Sound!

Edit: Returning to this show again for what has to be the dozenth time, and I still get goosebumps every episode.

Nostalgia is a beautiful lie

For all the warmth and comfort this show evokes, it’s easy to forget it takes place over a couple of weeks in a tiny gated community built around a golf course.
Cleaning out the attic is a sad and beautiful process, where you find that amazing childhood toy that once fed wild mental adventure, for a moment you’re back in that place, then you look at the faded decals and the spell breaks. A tape that carried you through middle school, only to be eaten by your neighbor’s boombox.
“It Makes a Sound” gives us both the beauty and the truth, and reminds us that as long as you’re still singing, it’s not over.
