Love listening to, & hearing about, the “behind the scenes” aspects of these people’s lives. Such intimate & personal conversations with amazingly interesting people. Very excited to have discovered this podcast!! Thank you WBUR.

Ava DuVernay is BIGGER than life. Thank you so much for following her and giving this to us. <3 WOW

Awesome concept, funny and offbeat - excellent podcast

Really enjoying this podcast. I especially liked the Jimmy Kimmel episode. Geoff Edgers is a very astute interviewer who does his homework and has a great sense of humor. Highly recommended.

Great New Podcast!

Left wing propaganda

Not the typical interview podcast

by JacksonFamTumwater on
Rating: ★★★★★

I prefer the longer interviews podcasts provide. This will be in my normal rotation. I like how they add interviews of others close to them, even if it is just a snippet.

Boring and unfunny

Kinda like watching the Oscars or his show, so if you like either I guess this is the podcast for you.

I really expected more from a professional entertainer especially when considering how capable podcasters have become.

Will not be listening any more

I will no longer be listening to this podcast. After having Jim Kimmel on as a guest, it's obvious this is nothing more than alt-left, anti-America propaganda. Good luck.

Mediocre entertainer... lousy political commentator ...too much hate. IMHO

Pretty clear...

by peege727 on

That a number of these reviews are simply people who hate Jimmy Kimmel orbother subjects for political reasons. Sad that these opinions, which have nothing to do eithvthe podcast, affect ratings. I found the episodes engaging - they’re not interviews, but stories. Nice job here.

Climbing the social acceptance ladder

Jimmy is such a shill, playing the social game of scoring brownie points.

i enjoy your stories but i find your lack of experience to seriously hinder the credibility of this podcast. your perspective on life is completely your own and respectable but there is no need to judge people who believe/feel deeply and perceive things differently than yourself. i hope you protect yourself and learn to listen with your heart. blessed be.

Had hopes for this podcast.

Had hopes for this podcast. Then I saw that you brought Kimmel on. When will you people realize that he doesn’t speak for real Americans. His crying is fake. He’s a total waste of skin.

Rating: ★★★★★

We get to be included in snippets of the lives of these people in a rare and engaging way. The hilarious, and yes, odd clips we hear, bring us into awareness of the normal human aspects to which we don't often get to be party. The Weird Al piece has everything. Music, secrets, a character portrait and the creative review of a 7-year-old. If we don't care what a child thinks, a child who ranks the Beatles in order of favorites, what DO we care about?

Cal is the BEST

by Hshshssbahajjsdb on
Rating: ★★★★★

Loved this podcast-- great interview and Geoff did an awesome job!!! Also, contrary to the previous review, I think the addition of Cal to the podcast truly humanizes the fantastic and other worldly journalist, Geoff Edgers! The child's mind is so pure, and you can sense the innocence of his emotions. Rock On Cal and Geoff!!!~ BrUcE & pAnDa

Weird Al Yankovich Interview

by Yahrite4 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Fantastic piece! Always liked Weird Al but didn’t give him much thought til hearing about how cool and great he actually is. Thank you for giving this listener a cheerful and refreshing change of pace from the typical dribble out there.

The real star

by Muggeridge on
Rating: ★★★★★

Edgers is excellent. The celebrities are fine. But the real hero here is Calvin, who brings a certain piquant worldliness. A je ne sais quoi. Fan club imminent.

Great podcast. Insightful profiles of entertainers, Great writing, great interviews. You feel like you actually know his subjects by the time you are done. I love the fact that he looks for interesting, offbeat stories instead of the obvious ones.

Just awful

by C.Ericson on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I adore Weird Al Yankovic. I will listen to just about anything he apears on. Yet I turned this off after 15 minutes. Why? Well, if I'm listening to a podcast with Weird Al, I expect to, you know, HEAR Weird Al. Instead, we get interspersed sound clips, which I get, you want this to be more than just an interview. But there's no interview. There's a one-sentence quote from Al ... then audio of Dr. Demento answering the phone for the podcast narrator? Then Weird Al's wife answering the phone three times asking to call back so she can make coffee? Riveting! Jimmy Fallon's PR rep telling you Jimmy is on the phone? Thrilling! And then, we get the narrator's 7-year-old son telling us who his favorite musicians are? Is this for real? I'm sure the guy's son is a great kid and all, but ... WHO THE HECK CARES?!? This seems less a podcast about Weird Al and more a podcast about who was interviewed for this podcast. Absolutely pathetic. Don't waste your time with this.

I really enjoyed listening to the podcast about Ava Duvernay. I learned one thing new about her personal family and professional family. It's important to learn new things and explore new families.

Ava!

Love this intimate profile of an inspiring woman. Geoff goes deep to understand his subject's background and perspective beyond just the vanilla celeb profile. And the Oprah cameo LOVE!!

Enjoyed

Great podcast

Incredibly boring and winding story that’s more about your love of Norm than anything about him.

by Awfulrrdditapp on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

The subject of your episode should be Norm, not your limp praise of his work or thin assessment of his career. Off the top of my head, you included four irrelevant and unfunny clips — Norm lost his wallet, his keys, he shaved, and told you you had a billion hours so didn’t need an ending — but you failed to use any of those interesting recordings.

Excited for this new podcast
