Hi! Welcome to Storytime with Seth Rogen, where every week Seth asks somebody, “Do you have a great story? And if you do, will you tell it on my podcast?” That’s it. That’s the concept. But the results are so much more than that.
This is not a typical comedian-hosted chat show! Each episode plays like a little audio documentary, a feature presentation unto itself, with supporting interviews and archival tape woven into each story with a rhythmic editing style. Not all the stories are knee-slap funny, and not all the guests are known. From a near-death grizzly bear fight in remote Canada, to a life-altering celebrity encounter in a movie theatre, to the revelation of a family secret, Storytime starts with Seth’s curiosity about people and the world, and always ends up in an unexpected place.

The Friends You Wish You Had
To be honest, I had a very “meh, why not?” attitude about checking out this podcast when I heard the ad for it. Another celebrity podcast? They’re often disappointing. Not the case here. Seth seems very down to earth and so do his guests. They’ve got interesting stories, genuinely good takes, and funny jokes. Listening to this podcast feels like hanging out with friends, but better… the friends you wish you had.
Seth Rogan is so played out
I just feel like I am getting dumber listening to this guy
Great podcast Seth! Yes… Trip Shakespeare are not only mind blowing, but just solid good dudes(and girl). Total flashback to all those great Midwestern shows in the early 90s.
