I loved Paul Harvey's rest of the story and, Mike doesn't disappoint. Great useless facts. On all kinds of people, places, and things.
Mike - been a fan for years. Your podcast is excellent. Please keep up the great work!!!
Fantastic stories, great twists, always matter-of-fact. Mike knocks it out of the ball park with these podcasts!
If you're looking for a short, entertaining, interesting, and educational podcast then you've found it.
Seriously such an entertaining podcast! It's so cool to hear the back stories of some of the most well known people. It's also fun trying to guess who he's talking about before he reveals! Such a great idea ð
Great way to learn about history! I look forward to this podcast update! The amount of research put into the telling of each story is absolute amazing! Perfect length podcast to keep your attention! Mike Rowe has a great voice and I can't wait to see what else he creates!
Anything Mike has done or voiced was informative and honest. He believes in values and I value his opinion. He podcast is no different. He spends ten minutes telling you a story and end a twist reveal of someone most of us knew but never knew. A+
Can't get enough of this podcast!
This is a fun, light hearted podcast that shares great stories. I recommend it!
I feel like I'm hearing a story and learning history all at once while being totally engaged and entertained for a short while. An easy podcast to turn on for guests as well, maybe have them guess who it's about before it's revealed
Great stories and story telling by Mike Rowe, but too much time plugging advertisers in the beginning of the podcast. Sometimes the talk and sponsor plugs are longer than the actual story. Mike, I know you need to get paid, but please KISS and short.
If you were a fan of Paul Harvey's the rest of the story, you will love this podcast. The only downside is the introduction and sponsor advertising is almost as long as the stories.
First off, big fan of Mike Rowe! Loved watching "Dirty Jobs" and seeing his post on Facebook got me onto these! I grew up listening to Paul Harvey with my dad in his old beat up truck; reminds me of his stories! Very well done, and learn something everyday! Also love the subtle and dry humor! Keep it up Mike! ðð»ðºð¸
Mike Rowe's podcast is an homage to the late, great, Paul Harvey, and he does it proud. I love this "punch line" type of storytelling. It is always exciting and the tension builds waiting for the big reveal and the Ah-Ha moment. Great stuff! And Mike chooses terrific subject matter. Always engaging. I tell everyone I know to subscribe. My daughter competed in the national Skills USA competition a couple of years ago. She says Mike is a hero to the vocational trade students nation-wide. Thanks Mike for encouraging our young people to learn and work in the technical trades.
Short, simple, yet masterful! @ Raptor Bellhop: is your attention span too short? Listening for an average of 5 minutes is no toil at all. Rate the podcast for its inspirational content and interesting facts-not the advertisement.
Mike hits it out the park again with this podcast. He has a way of being so genuine that I'm excited just to listen who today's sponsor is! The stories are always well written and entertaining. Subscribing is a no brainer.
Love the format of "listen and guess what part of history we are being exposed to".
I need more Mike in my life. Keep it rolling!
This may be the best podcast out there. The delivery is spot on and it's always an interesting story. I just found this podcast today and I've listened to 23 consecutive episodes and haven't been displeased once. Absolutely phenomenal! Only complaint would be it is released on a weekly basis lol I wish it was daily because it's just that good!
This is a great podcast that is short and sweet and always tells an interesting story. Mike seems like a friend you check in with each week. A joy.
Love how short and sweet this podcast is. Plus I learn something from every episode.
Love listening to Mike ramble. His introductions are so friendly I feel like a friend. Whether he is in studio talking on a $6000 microphone or his closet on a $60 mic, I cannot wait to hear what he shares next. Short, simple, delightful. Always. A favorite to share with non pod folk.
These are wonderful stories and Mike Rowe's voice is perfect. If you were a fan of Paul Harvey this will sound familiar. If you're not, you'll love it anyway!
We all look at the final chapter of a great life or the end result of a famous product and thing about nothing but that point of the reality, but each moment of fame has an origin story that explains how ordinary life is propelled forward by extrodinary behavior in simple, average people. If I take any lesson away from this podcast is that no one talked about thought that their actions or choices were going to change or effect the world we live in, but that is exactly what happened. The unseen jobs and behaviors shape the world more eternal than the publicized ones.
It kills me when people complain about something that's free. Please don't listen to this awesome podcast and go back to listening to NPR, and by the way Mike knocks it out of the park.
This is a fantastic podcast for those who want a great story, almost mystery at times, in a short time.
I enjoy everything about this cast that has been poded
I heard an interview Mike did on another podcast, and when I heard he had his own podcast I signed up right away. I look forward to hearing the new episodes.
First episode I listened to was 4 min of ad, followed by 6 min of story. What is that? Listened for a few more, but the stories just aren't that interesting.
I have seen your posts on Facebook and agree with most so I thought I would take a listen to your podcast, The Way I Heard It. I did that today, listening to "Dream Job" and I am now hooked and subscribed so I will not miss any more. I highly recommend anyone reading this review to give it a listen for yourself and then I suspect you will be a subscriber like me.
Brilliantly narrated stories to share with the entire family. I share this podcast with my 12 & 10 year old daughters and they stop staring at their devices to listen in. Please keep up the great work Mike!
I love the surprise ending in each episode and trying to guess who the protagonist is. It's great to learn about famous people's backgrounds that many don't know. I only wish the ads at the beginning weren't so long!
Thanks for all the great show
Probably the best subscription i have. I look forward every week to hearing what short story Mike Rowe has for the day
I have love Mike Rowe since his day of dirtiest jobs. And most of the time I find his political views spot on. So once I saw this pod cast I had to start listening. It is so funny but informative.
Some sense in a world of symbolism with no substance.
I really enjoy the stories that Mike finds, however, it's unreasonable that conversations about his sponsors typically account for nearly half the podcast. It's really irritating to have to either listen to or skip 4+ minutes of, what is essentially, advertising.
I really enjoy these stories. Keep it up.
The best gifts come in small packages. This short podcast is a real jam. How can anyone not love everything Mike Row does? Not only is he the most lovable guy in show business, he's also the most talented. Who knew he could write and narrate so well? I love those short stories, it's a real treat.
Great stories from this generation's Tom Brokaw
Each episodes is professional, a quick listen, and very intriguing! Fantastic!!!!
Great little fun stories. And Mike is so entertaining you can't even skip an ad you've heard five times already without missing something good. How does he do it?
Best show on podcast land, Mike Rowe tells a great story with a great voice. Love his show! Keep it up!
We enjoy listening to Mike Rowe's podcast very much and only wish he did one that was longer! The stories are great and, well, Mike is just as witty and funny as usual. Keep them coming!
These podcasts are amazing and make me smile each time. A modern day Paul Harvey. Great job and keep up the good work
Even the kids like it. We listen to it together as a family every week.
Mike Rowe is an amazing storyteller. This show makes me jump out of bed Tuesday mornings. I love listening to the stories. I love that they are bite sized and don't require an hour commitment. Highly recommended!
Look forward to this podcast every week!!!
Nothing left to say really. The kids and I love trying to guess who the person is. Makes car rides more fun and less stressful.
