Comforting and Hilarious

The cards and thoughts from Neil give my brain a jump start and almost always make me laugh out loud. The guests are interesting, intelligent, open and fascinating. I feel like I’m being taken care of in a way I never knew I needed by hearing new ideas from shared experiences, and listening to intelligent people who have wonderful ways of seeing the world. I am forced to think in a way that doesn’t make me tired. I am in love with this show, please keep them coming! Also, the theme song by Jeff Hiller is truly to die for. Love love love!!!

Delightfully quirky and refreshing

Neil’s prompts are relatable, fun, and truly bring out the personalities of his guests. I look forward to listening to every episode!

“How would your grandmother describe what you do?”

That’s one of Neil’s standard questions on the podcast, and I think it’s a perfect question, and perfect encapsulation of how he thinks and interrogates his peers.

It’s hard to imagine persuading the kind of person I imagine would read podcast reviews attentively. But I’ve always said that one of the joys of Neil Goldberg’s video artworks is explaining them to someone — because they are structured in a way that makes it easy to explain, and makes it easy for the listener to understand the not-so-simple possibilities that ensue. Even better, the index card notes that he has long jotted down and recently begun performing— and that his podcast conversations spring from — explain themselves perfectly. I’m going to do violence and/or justice to them by saying that Neil Goldberg invented the perfect tweet long before Twitter. He’s like a cross between Lydia Davis and Pat Regan. Consistent with their original form as handwriting and live performance, he has found the right online platform for this body of work, “sharing” and “interacting” in a podcast of conversations that are truly, I hate to say it, relatable.

Perfect episode length, to boot.
