A Paradox

This podcast paradoxically lives up to its theme: stories that were killed, which in many cases, stories with flaws, making them less interesting, a description made manifest by the reviewers who complain of less than interesting episodes. In logic it woul be circular reasoning.

Great Listen

I’ve listened to all the Audio Chuck podcasts and this is my favorite! Great idea for a podcast. Interesting to hear the perspective of all these writers/journalists and the stories behind what gets killed and why. Sometimes boring (new editor, etc.) sometimes sinister reasons. Pretty surprised by some of the bad reviews I guess just goes to show everyone is different. A winner for me!

Very good…but that song…..ugh

Love the variety of stories, but that opera type song that plays is awful.
