It does exactly what it says on the tin
Tl;dr 👍👍 I would like to say they reuploaded episodes with a lot of the prechat edited out. I was sad by that. While true it wasn’t relevant to the episode or, it may have been dated, it was still part of the original work and I enjoyed it very much.

Visiting hours. Well done
Sometimes there is a need for why the story needs to be told. Sometimes there is a need for silence. This was well done.

It’s like Paul Harvey was reincarnated

This had me crying at the end. Excellent story & so eloquently told. I’ve traveled a lot and Gettysburg was the most memorable. I wept looking at all the “unknown “ markers. So many, so young. Thank you Mike for another awesome episode!!!

An iconic voice
Mike Rowe has an iconic voice that’s up there with James Earl Jones, Morgan Freeman, Samuel L. Jackson and, Paul Harvey.

Just Excellent
I’ve never heard Paul Harvey’s “The Rest Of The Story,” the podcast that served as an inspiration to Mike Rowe’s “The Way I Heard It.” But I can tell you that TWIHI is likely more than a match for it. Great twisty stories, just enough to get you thinking, and Mike’s storytelling is brilliant. This podcast has become part of my Tuesday. It’s just great!

Loved this episode. I’ve listened to all of them and they have been great, but this one was the best. Brought tears to my eyes.

Amazing podcast!

Classic case of fear of cancel culture
I enjoy every podcast. But it does concern me that cities are burning and you are afraid to take a stand. Why is everyone afraid to speak out in what all are thinking? If Trump gets 50% of the black vote, will you get up your courage?

A pleasure to listen to.
Thanks Mike, for the cranial efforts necessary for your end results, your delivery, and that million dollar voice. Thanks too for the mental challenge and reliving the fun of Paul Harvey’s “rest of the story”. I almost had a coronary when I accidentally deleted your entire podcast ( instead of an episode) from my library but finally found the search button and retrieved it. (Hey, I just turned seventy...what can you expect?) Please keep ‘em coming.

The Rest of the Story
Mike Rowe and this podcast is reminiscent of Paul Harvey and The Rest of the Story. It’s always enjoyable and sneaky educational!

Great Show
I recently listened to episode 168, A Hooker You Can Trust, and I absolutely loved it. Two days later I was watching Season 1, Episode 4 (Alien Galaxies) of the show How the Universe Works, narrated by none other than Mike Rowe himself. Oddly enough, Rowe starts off the episode by mentioning Edwin Hubble and the 100-inch Hooker telescope on Mount Wilson in Los Angeles.

So nice to listen to
Thanks to Mike Rowe for doing this podcast. Wholesome, American, Human, and very Manly. A little dose of this… goes a long way. Coming from a mid-30s guy in CT, trying his best just to survive socially.

Something’s missing
What happened to you talking about how you came to write about your stories? It feels like something’s missing when I listen now and it’s giving me anxiety. Don’t leave a girl hanging from a cliff😊

Just a question
Mike, Is “Safety Third” found in a podcast? I’ve heard you speak of it, but alas I cannot find it. So help if you can. Thanks, Terry Johnson

Just a great story teller
Was looking to see if there were any recorded radio broadcasts of Paul Harvey podcasts and I found you instead! I had no idea you admired him as well. You’re a great story teller just like he was! So glad I found your podcast it’s wonderful.

Love the stories, but the ads have started being longer or just as long as the actual story now. Didn’t use to be that way

Very good. Relief.

No complaints!
Title of the review says it all. Well done! Big fan anxiously awaiting more. The adds don’t bother me. Make your money from your sponsors. It is well deserved. I just hit skip 30s until I hear the illustrious guitar riff. That’s the way I review it.

ADHD perfect

Fun!
If you’re fortunate enough to have ever heard & loved Paul Harvey you’LLC love this!!

Short n sweet
Paul Harvey would be so proud that Mike is doing a similar show with such class. So freakin interesting! Always fascinating stories. I always learn stuff from his stories. And try to guess who it is before he reveals it at the end. Mikes self effacing humor is such a breath of fresh air.

Dude really
Ok so I love this show but you need to get on a schedule like one or two a week

Ads about to make me unsubscribe
4.5 min of ad for 4 min episode? Getting worse. I like Mike, but can only take so much ad time.

Reminds me of “The Rest of the Story”
I grew up listening to the great Paul Harvey. I still finding myself tuning into The Rest of the Story at 4:10pm. Since finding The Way I Heard It I put on every day at 4:10. Great job Mike Rowe

I’ve only just begun
I am fairly new to listening to these podcasts. Read the book, reading it again. Watched the podcasts on YouTube and now listening to them. My brain is in a scramble. So many interesting stories and facts to know. However do you come up with this stuff. It’s absolutely refreshing to listen to and beats what’s on TV. I look forward to them every week and need to binge listen and get caught up. Thank you!

Well done!
Once again, I feel a bit smarter for learning something new and even more so being able solve your mystery guest. Doesn’t happen too often, so the victory dance in my mind is going wild. Can’t wait until the next story. Inquiring minds want to know more.

Used to be good
It used to be a good podcast. Then around episode 150 it turned into 50% podcast, 50% ad. And once in a while he’d throw in a nonsensical episode to subtly promote his right-wing politics, all while claiming to be non-political. There are better podcasts out there now.

The Best Podcast!

Awesome but needs work
Awesome!
I so enjoy these episodes and how Mike puts them together.

Short little attention span!
Great voice to fall asleep to. Yes I do have a short little attention span. Sometimes I have to listen 3 or 4 times before I get to the punch line. Sometimes I just have to listen in the morning. Thanks for keeping me off sleeping pills. Great stories.

Love these stories!!
I love this podcast. I have been through all of them. And now I am caught up...I can’t wait for the next one! I was a big Paul Harvey fan, and Mike Rowe is right up there with him in my book! In the meantime, I think I will check out his Mom’s book...it sounds like a hoot!!!
