Can be fun

This podcast can be fun sometimes when the hosts disagree on shows and hash it out. But that Terry Teachout is rather pompous at times and the whole thing can get a little precious.

Content is great- product toon quality not so much

I really enjoy this podcast- fun and full of expertise. Nice rapport between the folks. Very focused on New York theatre and trends

The sound quality though- ugh. An equipment upgrade is desperately needed. Hard to listen to sometimes.

A must for new york theater goers

This podcast is wonderful -- such a godsend especially since the TV show Theater Talk is now gone! The episode with Helen Shaw was one of the best I have heard from any podcast show (and I listen to about 2 hours a day of podcasts at double speed!). Because of that discussion, I am going to check out both La Mama and the Chocolate Factory Theater during my next visit to new york in early January. Broadway Radio is more comprehensive when it comes to reviewing shows, but 3OTA is better for insight into what is really happening.

Although the show is from new york, the hosts do talk about "regional" theater too. (For some reason, people in the theater world do not consider new york city to be part of any region -- one of those annoying nyc conceits for which I do not hold the 3OTA hosts particularly responsible.) The coverage of theater outsid new york is very spotty, but I appreciate that they are trying to extend beyond new york, and especially enjoyed the discussion with Lily Janiak about bay area theater (where I am from). Hope to hear more of this in the future.
