Don't bother

I listen to a lot of story podcasts and this one is lacking. The stories are mediocre at best and not well performed, generally speaking. The worst part is the host. Erin Barker is a jerk. She readily shares her opinions about things that have no basis in the science her show claims to support and merrily mocks people who have opinions that differ from her own. Aside from that, she has very pronounced vocal fry and I have yet to hear her get through any of her chatter before and after the segments without nervously giggling the entire time. I have listened to many episodes hoping she would improve, but she doesn't. If you're looking for a good story telling podcast, try Risk or The Moth. This one isn't worth your time.

Great stories

I tried this podcast while cooking dinner, thinking I’d enjoy it, but I didn’t expect to be so moved that I choked up over my pasta pot, great stuff

The Intellectual Dilettante approves!

Smart, well-told stories from smart, well-spoken people.
