I like it.

I like the show. I’m nowhere near Baltimore, but stories are stories and I enjoy listening to most of them. My only criticism is that as a podcast, you should be very concerned with sound, and the quality therein. Both of the hosts sound like absolute hot garbage, and can barely be understood. It’s bad.

I’m a sucker for stories...

...And if you are too, than this is well worth listening to. Biggest complaint is that it’s too short, you get into the theme and it’s suddenly over. The hosts’ intro and exit comments end up taking up a big chunk of the run time. It’s similar to The Moth or Porchlight although not quite as good. (To be fair, I’m sure they have nowhere near the funding of those shows, especially The Moth.) So you won’t find any semi-celebrity guests or comedians, just good stories.

The best of its type

I listen to almost all of the personal storytelling podcasts. And I’m not even from the east coast let alone Baltimore. But I find that these stories are much more everyday guy then the moth ( far two liberal ) bed post confessions ( I’ve never heard of half that stuff and I’m glad ) anyway needless to say I’ve tried them all and this is the best by far.
