Dependably excellent!

Pretentious in an unnecessary way

While I find the stories that are presented here to be interesting and engaging, the self-aggrandizing attitude of the hosts can overwhelm the sincerity of the people who have taken the time to share their stories. It would seem that the hosts, including Story Corps founder Dave, are well-intentioned, but their over-the-top underscoring and attestations to the profundity of their mission really undercut the whole premise of the show. Please, let the stories speak for themselves. Your efforts to insert yourselves into the stories are unwanted and unnecessary.
