Not holding my interest

I agree with “annoyed listener. The new one(s) do not measurements up to the previous seasons, and aren’t holding my interest. I will listen to at least one more episode before moving on.

Not as good as it used to be

Story Corps was one of my favorite podcasts. There was a theme each week and the story’s were from everyday people. Nothing special about them. Just people. And they were profound in that way.
Now it’s gotten kind of SJW-y in its format. The new host is cold and just not as nice to listen to as the previous one. The stories are all about people who have faced some kind of hardship or discrimination based on their race, gender, religion, sex preference, etc. Episodes are now like 15 mins with long commercials in the front middle and end. I feel like they forgot the whole point of the Story Corps movement. Capturing and sharing stories from just everyday people. The old stories were like sitting down with a friend and talking with them. Now it’s like a keynote from people who have been a part of a big movement or issue or story. I don’t relate to anyone anymore. Pretty disappointed in the new direction.

I used to love StoryCorps.

Now, it’s just snippets and then a moderator who butts in to summarize. It’s not nearly as powerful as it was before.
