The stories told in this podcast are completely pointless- just everyday stories like the ones your boring coworker tells you and you politely suffer through, wondering why he thinks you would be interested. The stories aren't well produced (in one story the guy did a bad impression of a Mexican woman's accent that bordered on offensive) and the stories aren't even told well- the timelines aren't laid out right so they are confusing, there is no real ending, no real meaning to the story. The stories aren't unusual or thought provoking. Very disappointing. I kept listening to them and thought they might improve, but they don't. I am a huge fan of this american life, the moth, snap judgement, the mystery show, radiolab. This just isn't worth your while.
