1st season great, 2nd not so much

The first season lives up to the billing. Great, surprising, and weird tales from Clive’s life, with an invented detail or two to tie things up nicely (hence the tag “83 to 100%” true). I can even forgive the Oak Valley episode that seems to only exist so it can poke fun at millennials.

Season 2 is a real disappointment though. The stories, if not straight fiction, are much more tame and uninspired, containing little life details about Clive or the characters within. It’s frustrating, because “A 700 foot mountain of whipped cream”, a moving yet experimental piece about growing up listening to radio and radio advertisements, is one of the best non-fiction podcasts I have ever heard. It makes the surrounding cookie cutter stories about femme fatales, yoga students, and artificial beings fall even flatter.

Hopefully season 3 will be more upfront about the fictional and non-fictional nature of each episode, and will stick to the latter.
