Not amazing, just decent. Definitely better podcasts out there, for sure.
Ilove this podcast! The episodes are quick and interesting!
Mike is my bed time story guy. Love him!
I LOVE everything about this podcast. I wish there were 1000 more episodes!
If you like mike Rowe this is the podcast for you it's pretty awesome I grew up on dirty jobs and this is exactly like the show
Another great show by Mike Rowe and his team!!!! Love it and get excited for it every week!
Good show, although I kinda hate how his advertisements sound too interesting to skip, even though I know it's not anything I need..
The only downside of this podcast is that it isn't longer!! However, the short and sweet episodes will keep you coming back.
And a great voice telling those stories. Highly recommend.
In six(ish) minutes, you'll learn what you never found in the history books - adding a new layer to your understanding of history. First class!
If I could have given it a zero, I would. Good concept and I loved Paul Harvey, but most of the allotted time is spent on the shows sponsors and promoting Mike Rowe's Facebook page. He also laughs at his own unfunny jokes a little but to long and enthusiastically - as if he's making sure we get it. Some how I feel less smart after listening rather than more informed.
Every time a new episode comes out, I push it to the top of my listening list. Absolutely hooked!
Guaranteed to be the most intriguing 8 minutes of your week.
On the edge of my seat the story. Mike is a story teller like no other!
In the theme of Paul Harvey's "the rest of the story" Mike has an easy voice to listen to, always look forward to the weekly upload.
Good for the soul!
I wish you would do these everyday!
Mike accomplished his goal of a brief podcast suitable for people with short attention spans. Too bad half the podcast is a commercial.
100% awesome Podcast. Mike is a natural writer and story teller who crafts a true tale that will keep you guessing. Short, sweet and interesting. Subscribe to this show!P.S. Mike also does great work with foundations helping people find real jobs that are in need. That adds bonus points for this podcast.
Look forward to hearing the way Mike heard it. Always informative and always entertaining.
Love listening to That's the Way I Heard It on the way to/from work. Mike always does a great job of making each story interesting and it's always fun to try to guess what the story is about before the end! Keep it up!
Can't recommend this podcast enough
Mike needs a face to face conversation based podcast.
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.
