Like chatting with friends!

Funny podcast with the Moth style stories in the middle, and fun banter between the hosts at the beginning & end (honestly, I’d happily listen even w/o the stories, just the banter is fun!). It’s like hearing your friends chat… never fails to make me laugh and just a genuinely nice podcast to listen to

Possibly my favorite podcast

Who knew that this pod would become one of my favorites, but it’s funny, charming, and optimistic (something rare in the podcast world) in addition to being entertaining and enjoyable. Meg and Eli seem like people you’d want to meet and have lunch with. And they’re thoughtful and insightful about Mormonism and Utah culture for those of us not steeped in it. Thanks for all the care you put into Strangerville!

Excellent company

Meg and Eli keep me company while I’m working, and make the days go by faster. I only started listening recently; I’m pretty upset with everyone for not telling me to listen sooner, but now I have lots of old episodes to binge so it works out. Their voices and easy rapport are so comfortable, and make me feel like I’m sitting with old friends. It’s exactly the kind of thing I need in these unprecedented times.
