I am so glad I came across this podcast. If you like serial, or this American life you will love this one. I only found it a couple days ago and I binged through all 3 seasons. I really hope there is a season 4.
Great stories. I need more please.
This is exquisite, intelligent, touching podcasting!
Iâm really enjoying these.
I love this podcast! When I listen in the car, I sit in the garage even after I get home because I'm so engrossed. Thoughtful, creative, inspiring. Thanks!
I am a fan of KQED and learned about the podcast through it.The Leap is truely the single greatest radio program / podcast I have ever listened to. Every episode takes you on a journey into somebody else's life and what struggles or opportunities they face. It provides you a different perspective on your own life, your own struggles and chances, and especially the choices (leaps) you may face to make a difference for yourself or others.I have been listening to every single episode mostly during my commute and I am desperatly awaiting the next season. The Leap is reason enough for me to donate to be a KQED donor.
Really appreciate the thoughtfully crafted stories.
One of my favourite podcasts! I always recommend it when people ask me for a new podcast series. Canât wait for another season!!
Tight stories that develop character and move the narrative. Impressive. Wish there were more.
I canât recommend this podcast enough, it is literally what gets me out of bed in the morning.
Fantastic story telling and it feels like Iâm falling more in live with the Bay Area. This has it going on in the Bay Area. My wife hates the other podcast that I listen to but she loves loves this one and my kids enjoy it too . Keep up the great work Iâm going to share this w everyone I know .
The leap is engaging and entertaining. It makes my commute fly-by and often keeps me thinking about the stories all day long. Often I can't wait to get back in the car to hear the end! The last installment, "I'm Your Man" was so well produced and completely captivating. Congratulations to the whole KQED team & please keep them coming!
The show is generally great and I never miss an episode. Iâd like to specifically mention the new episode, âIâm your man.â It is incredible. The emotion of it tore into my heart. Thanks for telling your story, April.
This is a top notch Podcast for those of us who appreciate really great, super interesting storytelling. I appreciate that I donât feel led politically in any direction, like I do with other podcasts. Itâs simply great storytelling without agendas. Enjoy!
I heard an episode on NPR One and was hooked immediately. Iâm working my way through the previous seasons now and every single story is amazing. Love the host, the editing - itâs great!
I have a long commute, 1 hour on a good day, and podcasts help me stay above grind. Iâm so happy to find KQEDâs âThe Leapâ. Great story-telling and just the right size. I can hear 2-3 stories and suddenly Iâm home. The premise is intriguing and the reporting is excellent. Iâm a new fan, playing catch-up on the back episodes.P.S. After reading the other reviews I just gotta say: I LOVE theme song!
These stories can be sad, sweet, bizarre disturbing, triumphant, and always worth the listen. What a great podcast. Thank you.
Already addicted. Definitely my new favorite show.
Awsome podcast. Love it
I am fascinated by The Leapâs story choices...varied, touching, interesting and so well done. Only complaint: theme song at the end. I wanted to like it...but I end up muting it every time. Keep up the great work!
I love the stories and the story telling. Absolutely fantastic But that song at the end of each episode is just tough hahahahaha
Love these stories about character, life and change. I've been listening (to most) with my fourth grade daughter and she can also relate. Please keep making!
Another amazing story from the amazing Judy Campbell. Check out The Leap. It may change YOUR life.
S3E1 is outsanding, heartrending.
Amy and Judy are great story tellers. Iâm looking forward to more of The Leap!
Relatively short stories that range from personal to historical - always engaging, always compelling. Great listening!
Excellent stories and storytelling. Captivating in that way only audio can be. I enjoyed the top notch production quality, which is so rare these days. This show should top the charts, itâs just missing the exposure. Please rate and comment so that others can find it and enjoy.
amazing story tellers with a fresh perspective!
I just subscribed and thoroughly enjoy! Moving storytelling
A wonderful show that touches the soul and mind.
I started listening to this podcast skeptically but have been drawn into every episode and now canât wait for more. Great storytelling
I've loved every episode. This is my favorite podcast since the first season of Serial. One idea - I'd love to hear the theme song reinterpreted each season as done on the Wire. Would also love to see you catch up again with some of your subjects. Thanks for such a great podcast!
I really appreciated S2E5: A Unorthodox Life. Henry Kupferstein's story was both tragic and uplifting - and really interesting. Keep up the good work!
A hidden gem in the podcast world. None of the gimmickry or coy faux-authenticty you hear on some other shows. Just great stories well told. Actually, the style is most reminiscent of feature articles in the New Yorker!
The Leap presents stories about "ordinary" people who have led extraordinary lives. Not all storybook happy endings, but truly fascinating. Each story grabs my curiosity and often teaches me something about life.
A thoughtful and delightful narrative journalism!
This is wonderful show. It has made me laugh and cry. It's so honest and raw. I love that it feels like I'm watching a movie as I listen.
I love people and have always been captivated by hearing people tell their life stories. The Leap does an amazing job of sharing fascinating/inspiring/moving life stories.
I've just started listening to this show, but each of the episodes so far have been eye-opening and interesting.
Great storytelling! Love this podcast!
The NPR One app suggested The Leap podcast. I am glad I clicked "Listen Now".
I listened to one episode and subscribed. It was heartfelt, informative and down to earth.
The stories are great and the interviews are engaging.
The Leap is such an amazing podcast. I am so happy that The Leap got a second season. The stories are personal, honest, and wonderfully produced. Keep up the great work!!
Just discovered this podcast and I'm so glad I did! I find myself hanging in every word due to the wonderful story telling. This podcast tugs at your heart strings and makes you think.
I'm so happy to have found such a high quality podcast about local human interest stories! Brilliant!
I have come to love this podcast. The first two episodes were so-so but I loved the concept and kept listening. The stories and interviews are amazing. Thank you!!
I love this show thanks guys so much I wish you had more episodes!
