Reviews For Seriously…

Loved every minute of it.
The summaries/reactions from the host at the end of each episode don’t do much for me, being a little lightweight by comparison, but the shows themselves are solid gold! Really tremendous, curated content.
Love this. Great thought, provocative and in depth. Can’t bear Rihanna’s personal perspective at the end though! Otherwise great.
Do not be put off this terrific podcast--documentaries, etc., from BBC Radio 4--by the irritating introduction and end-summaries and the even more irritating podcast host. The latest--Peter Tatchell on decriminalising male homosexuality in the UK--was an eye-opening and thorough analysis that should make anyone who cares about civil rights both better-informed and angry. The host, when it finished, described it as "an engaging listen"--a phrase that manages to be simultaneously meaningless and semi-literate.
I used to love this podcast. This latest rebranding makes me decidedly less excited to listen. The content is still excellent, but the introduction seems odd to me, and the intro music grates SERIOUSLY on my nerves. I try to skip the first 15 seconds or so each time, but since it starts immediately they're already grated. I'd love to have a second or so of silence at the beginning to allow me to skip without grating first, or at least an option to start 15 seconds into the podcast! As is, I'm afraid it's only a matter of time before I wear down and stop listening.
Excited to hear more
I just found the Doc of the Week podcast less than two months ago. Already it's given me some truly unique little audio experiences, which I might have otherwise missed. From a history of the Smiley Face icon to a discussion of the more militant of the British "suffragettes" (with some archived interviews with the women involved), it is definitely worth seeking out.
