PRAISE FOR THE OTHERPPL PODCAST:  

“…[an] excellent literary podcast." -The Paris Review   

“Fabulously smart.” -The Rumpus  

“…fun, quirky, in-depth…” -NPR  

“The perfect way to get the story behind your stories.” -Buzzfeed  

“…the preplanned responses of NPR personalities sound somewhat counterfeit when stacked against the largely, if not completely, unscripted monologues that open rawer podcasts, such as Marc Maron’s ‘WTF’ and Brad Listi’s literary ‘Otherppl’ podcast. Mr. Listi, for instance, frequently allows for lengthy pauses in between sentences that convey, without stage directions, the process of someone thinking aloud.” -New York Times  

“Good from the word ‘go.’…funny, pointed, thought-provoking. If there’s any justice in the world, this will become huge.” -McSweeney's   

“Always engaging and often revelatory…one more cog in a burgeoning literary media empire.” -Filmmaker Magazine  

“Listi’s interviews are somehow both more relaxed and more personal than the typical author conversation.” -The Millions  

“In a world full of distractions — where almost everything I encounter is practically begging me not to write — Brad Listi’s podcast has made me hit the pause button on my iTunes, blow off social obligations, and sit my ass down in a chair and write. The show is funny, insightful, entertaining, affirming, and, more than anything — inspiring. It’s easily one of the best podcasts on the web.” -Electric Literature  

“What’s awesome here is the personal questions, the open quality of the interviews…Listi is a damn good interviewer with an ability to discuss just about anything. His discussions of religion in particular make for an awesomely intimate environment that many other interview podcasts just don’t have.” -Book Riot  

“The writers and book-relevant folks [Listi has] chosen to feature range from the up-and-coming to well-established. Indie presses and their authors are abundant, so it’s a great spot to hear about off-the-radar talent. I feel like I’ve gone into some of the episodes barely knowing a name, and I come out with a better understanding of the creative life and, usually, a new book on my to-read list.” -Bustle

terrific for readers and writers!

brad’s on top of his game. he gets great authors, knows their work and bios, asks direct questions respectfully, and keeps the conversation flowing. i like that he has the occasional indie author on as well, as their voices also deserve to be heard.

An excellent diversion into the real world

The time I spend listening to Brad Listi’s conversations with interesting people is time well spent in my day. There is a wealth of prime material here. I’ll spend a lifetime digging into all of it!

Fantastic podcast for writers, aspiring writers, or anyone who enjoys reading. A great look behind the curtain at authors’ lives and creative processes.
