I simultaneously love and hate this podcast. The first ep about NoNoNoNoYes completely sucked me in to both this podcast and Reddit in general. Now I waste a lot of time on Reddit. On the flipside, I spend less time on FB.
A good premise for a podcast but I have read better things on reddit than the few stories Iâve listened to so far. None of the episodes were interesting enough to mention as an exception. The hosts are annoyingly wholesome with cringe worthy jokes. I found that I would turn off the podcast when my husband came in the room out of embarrassment.
The hosts have a great rapport and also deliver interesting stories, whether theyâre about issues I already know a fair bit about or subjects Iâm just hearing about for the first time. Recommended episodes: The GOAT, Kickinâ It, In Memoriam
I'm so glad I found this podcast! (Thanks 99pi) It's everything I want in one podcast: internet culture, reddit and hosts I like (and hometown of boston bonus)
Endless Thread has it all- a perfect combination of stories, science, and humor. Iâm a huge fan of the large variety of topics and interesting interviews with Redditors.
I enjoy the stories and topics but the hosts are too corny and make it difficult to listen at times. Less puns and bad jokes plz.
I love miscellaneous, human interest stories. You guys are funny!
This podcast presents me with fun, strange, and unusual facts from around the world. I hope that you guys keep it up!
Really loving this. Iâve listened to and loved every episode. I love that the subjects are fresh and fun. Something light but also interesting and exciting. My kind of podcast for sure
The wide array of topics covered makes this one of my favorite podcasts to listen to: you never know what youâre going to get but itâs always quirky and interesting. Definitely worth your time!
I was so excited to hear this concept was becoming a podcast. Reddit as a community has such a history of lore and exciting and weird stories. I like the research that is done and the interviews and the ways the stories are presented in the podcast, but the hosts... I really wanted to like them but they have really awkward chemistry and often seem like theyâre reading straight from a script. They also seem out of touch in a way, like the cringy aunt on Facebook who reposts memes from 2005. The entire outtro that plays at the end of the podcast is an epitome of the cringe. I have to rush for the stop button every time before I have to listen to it. Overall, great concept, decent execution, not the best hosts. Leaving you feeling like a high school teacher is hanging out Instagram just so she can attempt to understand slang her students use
This would be a very good podcast if not for fake scripted banter between the hosts. It ruins the credibility of the whole show. The banter is so bad that I canât stand to listen to what otherwise would be entertaining stories. Authenticity is what people are looking for in a podcast.
Like it. Good break from the serious and terrifying.
I liked the first few episodes but the scripted banter between the co-hosts is cringeworthy. I had to stop listening today finally bc it was so painful and wonât be back unless I happen to hear thereâs been a change. Just having Ben as host would be fine.
I'm not a reddit-er, but have loved learning more about the wierd world of the internet and the amazing stories that live on it.
...that it is only available once a week. But hey theyâre great and more than 1 a week would drive quality down
First episode is unbearably boring and seems to just wander endlessly into seemingly unimportant directions. It seems like things donât have much purpose or resolution. The show needs to be tightened up. The second and third episodes are a little better but lacking excitement and âpunchâ.
Interesting topics and a great show concept. Lower rating is due to the cutesy co-host banter garbage we are forced to fast forward through. Donât waste my valuable podcast time!!
I just discovered this podcast last week and it is an amazing show. Iâve only listened two episodes and had to leave this comment. You guys are amazing! Keep up the incredible work!
Love this show! I can wait for the next episode.
Really like this show so far. I actually liked Redditâs first podcast endeavor, Upvoted, but it definitely lacked polish. Endless Thread is hugely helped by the talent of WBUR and sounds great and has good editing. Reddit is an endless trove of interesting stories, so if they do it right this podcast will be great for a long long time.
...the two narratorâs scripted banter is extremely annoying. I really wish they would talk more naturally...And stop the laugh-y cutesy banter. Maybe getting rid of one of the hosts would help. I like the content but I canât get over the cringe. Could only make it through a couple episodes because it irritated me like fingernails on a chalkboard and made me irate enough to write a review. Yikes.
What is the point of this show? It seems to lack a guiding principle and so it seems so pointless. The first episode was so cavalier about extremely traumatic experiences, and also did not make sense. Iâm listening to horrible experiences so I can laugh that they didnât end in death? Second episode is really reaching for meaning. A dude taking care of a turtle because he wants to take care of something the way others arenât caring from him... so cheesy and unearned. It seems like Reddit paid for this and the only link is âwe found this guy on Reddit.â Thatâs what journalism is now! Everyone does that. Not a premise for a show.
Am I being over -dramatic? Fascinating listen. Great eye for catching interesting Reddit entries.
I am so glad WBUR is making this podcast! It is fascinating and unexpected in the best way. I grew up in Boston so I have a soft spot for WBUR. This podcast reminds me how much I cherish and love the thinkers and writers that make up Boston public radio!
Super interesting topics discussed in a way that make me feel somewhat academic regarding my Reddit obsession. Well-researched and lively told stories - I subscribed and listen to these to make long drives exponentially more tolerable.
So far Iâm enjoying the shows, but some times they leave you feeling empty. We want more! I do not feel enough time was dedicated to the vault. 25 or so minutes does not do it justice. I call for a part 2!
Made it a total of 5 minutes into the first episode and had to turn it off. Horrible idea for a podcast.
Unique stories told in an upbeat way. Clever, and now I'm anxious for the next episode!
I was looking for a podcast with the intention of having it in the background while I got some work done. I forgot that I was actually supposed to work because of how intriguing and captivating I found these stories. Canât wait until the next episode!
Loved the first couple episodes.....canât wait for more. Variety gives this the potential to be great.
1st episode was not very good...2nd gives me hope.
This is a wonderful idea. Take the best of the stories that are out there on Reddit and deliver them to the public in a noteworthy, easy to listen to way. Look forward to it every week!
I found this podcast randomly. I always love listening to crazy/sad/inspiring/uplifting stories, and obviously the internet, especially reddit is full of them. But I donât have the time or energy to sift through the gigantic mess that is reddit. So itâs nice that they bring it all to you, and in a unique and very intriguing way. While at this moment, there are only 2 episode, I thoroughly enjoyed them and am now absolutely a subscriber. I will recommend them to everyone I know!!
Solid show but man this is a blatant rip off of Reply All podcast.
Great job. I can tell you guys really love doing this.
I will support WBUR until the day I die, and it's because of content like THIS! I am NPR podcast-obsessed, and this one is incredibly well done. Hosts have great chemistry. Length is perfect. I wish they came out with more than 1 episode per week!
Great stories of the human condition but uniquely creative in how itâs all edited and presented, which is so professionally done that keeps the listener interested, which is the whole point of getting a story heard and an experience shared or learned. Really nicely done!
Wonderful podcast, fabulous production values, great hosts, my new favorite. Thank you Reddit and WBUR.
Wow... I cannot believe how much time was spent telling the listener how many people they unsuccessfully attempted to contact about the aircraft windshield incident. Yikes. My first listen... Not sure I'll try another.
The first episode was funny, suspenseful, and interesting. I can't wait for the next one!
If you love interesting stories about real people and real life, youâll love this podcast!I canât wait for more episodes!
Interesting, FUN, very positive & well edited! I canât wait for more. Keep it up. I learned a lot. ðð½
This is going to be great to listen to on my Metro rides around DC, now I donât have to worry about cell service or WiFi to get my Reddit fix!
... cannot wait for the next episode
Here is a great podcast!
The cringe was maybe bearable but then I heard how the host mispronounces gif...no thank you!
Love it! Funny, energetic, informative. Iâm not a Redditor (yet) but Iâm glad there is someone out there distilling the best of the Reddit universe for me. Looking forward to more!
I'm a sucker for stories about disasters and near-disasters, so I thought the first episode was terrifically entertaining. Kudos to WBUR and Reddit for putting their talented heads together and finding a way to extract audio stories from the wealth of human stories on Reddit.
