Love the Deep Dives, Hate the Too Frequent Ads

by $RUM on
Rating: ★★★★☆

From season long deep dives on one subject, from ESPN to Saturday Night Live, this is a great podcast. Entertaining, informed and well edited. But the ads breaks are too long...and when the host tried to make it (the ads) part of he show - like a native ad, they sound disingenuous.

Loved it!

Thanks for this deep dive into Sex and the City. I moved to Berlin, Germany in 2006 all alone. Watching Sex & the City got me through the loneliness of the start of my life in Europe. It’s a show you can watch again and again.

DETEST Michael Wilbon

by Lolo13419 on
Rating: ★★★★☆

I love Jim Miller (would’ve given 5 stars all day if it wasn’t for Wilbon) but I can’t stand Michael Wilbon!! He is a has-been, a disgraceful and very unappealing bully who is jealous and threatened by the next generation of talented journalists (Mina Kimes, Golic Jr, The Lebatard crew, Field Yates, Dominique Foxworth, Pablo Torre, Bomani Jones, Louis Riddick, Ryan Clark, Maria Taylor and Laura Rutledge) who are rightfully pushing his sorry ungrateful butt out the door!!!! He is a creep and a hater and he needs to go! It’s time to TAKE OUT THE TRASH with Wilbon IN IT!!!! He’s so conceited and self serving. He’s a terrible example of a former leader. I feel bad for any of the younger journalists that are watching him. He needs to go!!!!

Informative but not many quality episodes

by Jason footd on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I enjoy the actual seasons of Origins but after the initial week or two of episodes everything is just a recycled “bonus episode.” I have a hard time recommending the podcast because I feel like I have to tell everyone “you’re gonna love the seasons but then have tons of episodes that will just be a waste of time and you’ll have to delete. “

LOVED the SATC Set!

I wanted more after the episodes were done! What a great insight into the show... I hope a Friends or a Sopranos one is next!

A great look into the things you love

If you’re a sex and the city fan you will love all the behind the scene details told by the stars themselves!

Rants

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Started out nice but it seems that he just let's the guest go on rants. Maybe that's your thing, not mine.

Highs and Lows

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

What an amazing set of stories Jim Miller chose for this series. The ESPN, Saban, Curb, and original SNL work was terrific. Unfortunately, he also offers the irrelevant Bikram Yoga scenario along with the latest SNL episodes. Clunkers. Is he running out of highly resonating topics for the series? Let’s hope he finds his way back to more interesting subjects. One of the standout features of this series is the posting of the full interview content to support the summarized version. Great idea.

Just keep the show episodes do away with the full interview episodes

by Jim Chaney on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I skipped the Curb series because I never watched it. I listened to the ESPN and Nick Saban episodes. The episodes were good but the full interview episodes are just nauseating, especially the Saban ones. Also they are clipped out and put in the show episodes. Do people really want to hear the same thing? I am on the fence with this podcast going forward. The next series will be the decider if I stay with this or unsubscribe.

Stop worshipping Saban

by Fatigued Listener on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

For the love of my sanity, please stop with the Bama worship. Do you really need to ruin this podcast with episode after episode dedicated to them? It’s sickening. This was a good podcast that I now have to avoid, because the last 11 episodes are about bammer. Please. Stop.

30 for 30 lite

Started out promising with Curb and ESPN was ok, but it has just become a 30for30 wannabe... I tried to hang in there, but I can’t any longer.

Excellent

by Russell from New York on
Rating: ★★★★★

This has been a wonderful podcast for me. I am from New York and could care less about Alabama football. But, the lessons learned from their coaches and "the process" has helped me in my every day life as a husband, father and physician. This is a credit to Mr. Miller and the excellent manner in which he conveyed these valuable lessons. I look forward to more wonderful podcasts from Mr. Miller. Thank you

Great storytelling, terrible music

by danshapiro on
Rating: ★★★★☆

Love these stories and the reporting. The music. is. terrible. Just tacky and Cheesy as could be. Really undermines the tone and good thinking that goes into these pieces. Horrible.

Well done

Toooooooo many ads

Great content, but the frequency of ads makes it hard to get into a groove.

A little too much pr puff

by Skdiendjckemlalandfn on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The Espn series was good and really insightful. The curb episodes were good but didn’t really break any new ground. The first Saban episode, sadly, was little more than a paid Alabama commercial. Only reason I listened was to find out something new about nick Saban, not that “he works his players hard” and “he’s always planning”. Zzzzzzzz...

I haven’t connected personally with every topic, but I’ve learned from every podcast that I stuck with. We spend more hours awake at work than at home, so why not do it better?

Great deep dives

I have really enjoyed the first two seasons of this. Only criticism is the ESPN episodes feel long. But great quality journalism and entertainment.

Curb 1st episode

by teacherman729 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I loved it I am a great fan of Larry David and Curb Your Enthusiasm I enjoyed the interviews My one complaint I wasn’t always able to identify the cast members especially the less well known ones by their voices I wish James introduced them by name Aside from that small annoyance I throughly enjoyed the podcast And I’m looking forward to listening to the complete series Thanks Jerome Butler

how could you do this whole podcast without mentioning the kornheiser radio program? wilbons many appearences on it were exactly like PTI, cant believe it was not mentioned.

Liberal Hypocrite

by Madhat1953 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Don’t bother listening to Mr Miller’s first episode on ESPN and Social Media podcast if you are expecting anything other than his liberal bias. He doesn’t bother to contrast the way ESPN handled the Curt Schilling conservative tweets on Radical Islam and Transgender bill in NC where he was fired and Jemele Hill’s liberal tweets about President Trump and boycotting the NFL where she got a two week suspension. For Hill, he defends her tweet as if she was some great heroine who should not be held accountable for her social media posts and for Schilling he wrote the following “It’s not an unfair or impractical position for ESPN to hold,” he added. “If you want to express your own opinions in a provocative way on social media, then ESPN and a lot of other media organizations are probably not where you should be working.”How does that view not apply to Hill?

Great content, terrible sound quality

Come on! There’s no excuse for such pitiful sound quality. This could be easily solved with 5 minutes and $25 worth of wires.

way too many ads

This is an amazing listen. I recommend this highly to everybody who likes Curb, or even who watches Seinfeld. Please do yourself a favor and enjoy this labor of love and masterpiece by Mr. Miller.

So badly wanted to love this

by Madonnaisthequeen on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Perhaps my expectations were too high on this one, but it's not good. As a fan of Curb, I was excited to tune in and learn something new about it. In the first episode, there were a few interesting anecdotes but nothing that compelling. Adding to that there is a FACTUAL ERROR in the episode. It says that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were members of the Groundlings, which is completely wrong. You can find that in a simple Google search. The fact that something so well known and easy to check verify, gives me pause on the accuracy of the remaining episodes. I will tune in the Curb's new season, but will be skipping the remainder of the series.

Fascinating

by mlp319 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Miller does such a marvelous job of not only accessing the key people behind a story, but putting it all into context. I'm a huge "Curb" fan, so these first few episodes have been a delight, but I'd also recommend the show for anyone curious about how things are made. A must-listen.

Best Larry David podcast

Excellent podcast!!!

by thetippers on
Rating: ★★★★★

Very insightful!

Started out great but...

by Barkenmar on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I would have given Origins 5 stars after the first couple of episodes. It was wonderful hearing how it all came together, how the cast got picked, Larry's journey, the unique and brave HBO execs who let the show be the great show that it was and is. It should have ended there.The rest was like going to a memorial service for Larry David. How much he was loved, how generous he is, what a genius, what friend, how proud the cast was to be in his aura, etc, etc.It got pretty sappy. Not sure Larry would have loved all the adulation (or maybe he would.) Couldn't wait for episode 5 to end. The producers and editors could have curbed their enthusiasm just a bit and it would have been great.

Way too many ads! I don’t mind a few but I will never use stamps.con or square space ever just because of the constant barrage. Frustrating because the interviews are somewhat interesting.

I listen to 2 hours of podcasts per day every day while walking and these five episodes are among the best I've heard. I literally found myself laughing out loud as other folks were walking by me. Looking forward to new episodes.
