Yep. Definitely worth every minute.   (5/5)

Such good stories presented in a caring, inquisitive and adoring way. I’m a long time listener of criminal podcast and that led me to this project. This season about animals was especially good and soooo what I want to listen to. Thank you Phoebe and Loren and crew. Please keep it coming.

simple artful and true   (5/5)

i love the simplicity of the stories, the low drama they involve, and how artfully they’re narrated. they surprise me: i never knew i could be so mesmerized by a story about swimming with a baby whale, or about living alone in the mountains. this podcast is the perfect antidote to the times we live in. thank you.

A joy   (5/5)

I have been so impressed time after time. From whales to wolves to Prince. Reminds me that I don’t like baseball, but love excellent books about baseball. Wonderful focus in a very troubled time. Look forward to more. Thank you.

Enjoying :)   (5/5)

I’m really enjoying listening. Great stories, as always Phoebe narrates so well 💜

It’s perfect.   (5/5)

Phoebe and her team do a great job of finding interesting stories to command my attention. I eagerly await each episode and don’t think I’ve missed one. This season includes exclusively animal stories and I am not appreciating that theme as much as I thought I would but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love each one.

Heartwarming   (5/5)

Stories that inspire and leave you feeling hopeful!

Thought Provoking   (5/5)

I am a self proclaimed Podcast Junkie I listen to all types of podcasts this is one of my all time favorites. Listening to all these stories cultivate the best”feel good” emotions. These stories are compellingly, empathy-evoking treasures that hold my attention and make me feel the love! ♥️please don’t stop making these treasures!

Lovely   (5/5)

Great stories!

Godsend   (5/5)

This is exactly what I needed at exactly this moment!

Something large and wild   (5/5)

I thought this was incredible. This woman was wonderful to have such feeling for the whales and what an amazingly strong woman. I have enjoyed the entire series This is Love. Thank you for recording all these episodes. I live near Asheville and I will donate!

Great show!   (5/5)

Such sweet & unique stories

My new favorite   (5/5)

Unexpected stories, told with respect and genuine interest in the subjects.

Fantastic and heartwarming.   (5/5)

This podcast is so fantastic and heart warming, it is exactly what people need to hear in these crazy times. Especially this season with the animal stories, tremendous! Personally I hope the animal theme continues or potentially branches off into its own version of this is love. Keep up the great work phoebe and team!

Warbler episode   (5/5)

“Being still invites the appreciation of motion” <—- love this so much. The podcast is awesome! Love all things from Phoebe :)

VOLUME !!   (4/5)

I was so impressed with the care & the research you put into the first season. I enjoy your voice and the music choices. However, this season seems slapped together - every episode is a first draft. After turning up the volume to 11 to hear the whispering testimony, I’m knocked out of my chair with: STATE FARM IS...!!!!!! Come on. Take some pride in this. Take an extra 24-48 hours to produce it right. Yes, I’m a paying “customer.” Yes, I’ll stick around to see if you can figure it out. Thank u.

Enchanting...the Under the Ice episode was OUTSTANDING. Just amazing.   (5/5)

Every story has me captivated. Not normal stories of romantic love and that is why it works so well. The “Town That Stayed Quiet” episode is my favorite Phoebe

This is (my) love for the this is love podcast   (5/5)

What a wonderful compilation of stories about love. This podcast is a light in the darkness and it’s incredibly thoughtful and heartwarming. Thank you for sharing these charming anecdotes.

Love   (5/5)

Thank you to Phoebe, Lauren, and their incredible team for bringing some love into our lives through outstanding storytelling. I highly recommend this podcast.

Love   (5/5)

I absolutely loved this season with animals 💜

Highly recommend   (5/5)

Phoebe I love your name, your voice and your podcasts! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!

This is Love   (5/5)

I love this podcast dearly, and I have very much enjoyed this season about the animals, most especially the wolves. I find these stories to be like food for the soul.

Absolutely incredible season   (5/5)

Man, this was about the most uplifting podcast season I’ve ever heard. Thank you so much for making this 💜

LOVE This is Love!   (5/5)

Absolutely love this podcast and storytelling! I’ve learned so much and always feel better after I listen. Thanks Phoebe!

Great story telling-a must listen podcast   (5/5)

This Is Love has has helped me get through covid quarantine. The stories are lovely, positive and helps you escape for a little bit. Very well done!

So Charming   (5/5)

Love this podcast and it’s companion completely! I am a fan of true crime, and chose Criminal initially because of that, but this podcast is so much more than just another true crime podcast. It is better, because it stories, and it doesn’t create anxiety, but the opposite...well maybe a little 😊Phoebe‘a voice is soothing and The entire atmosphere of the show is that of an intimate conversation. The same with This is Love. The title made me think it would be syrupy, but again, I was wrong. I have been listening to the season that is all about animals. I just finished listening to the beautiful episode about Drew Lanham, and was reminded of how our dog’s undercoat graced the lining of many a bird nest in our yard. Keep up the good work.


From the sound of Phoebe’s voice, to the atmosphere of the episodes, it’s spectacular. The way she words things and how deep the conversations get are amazing. The episodes are my escape when I am stressed. I have never been let down by an episode. Phoebe never fails to present and tell a good story that is worth hearing. I’m in love. Overall, this podcast is immaculate!

Fascinating and Memorable   (5/5)

So well-crafted, fascinating and memorable. The real life people who populate these stories completely drew me in to their fascinating and unusual lives. Thoroughly enjoyable listening experience.

Fabulous!   (5/5)

This is the best podcast out there (IMO)! I could listen to Phoebe talk about anything. The storytelling is phenomenal and so interesting and different from the everyday stuff. I wish there were more episodes, but I know good things are worth waiting for! Keep up the great work Phoebe, Lauren, and Nadia! You ladies rock!

Such a charming podcast   (5/5)

Truly lovely to listen to. The same great reporting style of Phoebe Judge from criminal, and now with the sweetest and most endearing characters and episodes. Each one leaves me smiling (or happy crying). I look forward to every episode.

Fabulous stories   (5/5)

Well presented and interesting!

I’m out.   (1/5)

Sorry phoebe. I used to like your work and ability to tell a story. These last few episodes have been a waste of time. I’m done.

Top notch in so many ways   (5/5)

The soothing voice and demeanor of this podcast’s perceptive host keep my attention, and topics are always relevant and so interesting. Today I was completely enraptured by the underwater iceberg cave-diver story. Excellent execution and production. This is a top go-to podcast whenever I need to escape for a little while. Thank you for creating such a quality pod.

I love love love this!   (5/5)

I love the store, I can’t imagine not listening. If you’re not listening you’re missing out.

Worth your time   (5/5)

I LOVE this podcast! The “love” stories are varied and fascinating. I have listened to every episode and have never been disappointed.

Phoebe Judge Rules!   (5/5)

She’s the best. I even listen to the commercials.

Unique and lovely   (5/5)

I’ve been listening to This is Love since it started coming out, and like its counterpart Criminal, this show tells stories I don’t think you’ll hear anywhere else with grace and emotional depth.

Must Listen!   (5/5)

Absolutely wonderful! We all need more This is Love in our lives.

Thoughtfulness in a podcast   (5/5)

Truly enjoying “This is love” during Covid-19. Thank you for highlighting love during a strange time in our lives.

Listened from the beginning   (5/5)

Just finished Prairie Warbler! Got me right in my heart. I mean hit home. I love this podcast! So wholesome! Keep it up!

Keep going   (5/5)

I have listened to about 10 episodes. This is the most remarkable podcast. It makes me feel Calm and somehow connected to something. Please keep making more episodes. It truly is remarkable. My favorites are the very first episode and the episode about the baby whale and the town that was quiet about Cremona is my absolute fav of all time! When are the new episodes coming?and now the Prairie Warbler and the Wolves have won the hearts of my 7 year old son so we can share the Love!

Sigh   (5/5)

Listening to this podcast feels like a peaceful vacation that, during this strange time, gives me inspiration to go forward and do better things for this world. Thank you.

Wonderful   (5/5)

It just so beautiful and inspiring! Absolutely love that show

A Beautiful Podcast   (5/5)

This is Love is a beautiful, life affirming podcast. Especially now, as we are all touched by unexpected stresses, this podcast is a joy. I wish Phoebe and her team could put them out faster. I hate waiting for the next episode, and I’ve already listened to all of the old ones!

Episode 22 Prairie Warbler   (5/5)

Perhaps the best podcast episode I have ever listened to. Great job Phoebe, and keep putting the hair out.

Warbler   (5/5)

What a lovely story. I was truly entranced by it.

It’s gets better and better   (5/5)

This podcast has been great from the beginning, but it just gets better and better with each episode. I was afraid that this would be a sappy podcast, but each story has so much depth and really makes you feel and consider things in a way you might not have before. My only complaint is how much time there is between each episode, I wish they came out more often.

Obviously all lies, sure. But it’s getting ridiculous   (1/5)

There’s hundreds of examples but the freshest on my mind is episode 630. I mean really?? Dude starts his “encounter” off by asking all believing Wes if he could give quote: “like a lil testimony and what not”.... let me be clear I’m not knocking him for his Christian Faith or that he was in a car wreck that knocked him retarded. That’s not the issue. What is the issue is that he’ll preach the gospel professing his faith then go straight into telling an elaborate, poorly thought out lie and what not, and stuff, and this that and the other, and junk... LOL In general pertaining to the podcast as a whole it baffles me how folks can’t seem to hear how poorly they lie. Red flags out the ass. Also if you know a cop or distantly related to one the guests immediately let it be known like listeners will hear that and think “oh well he must be telling the truth”. 9.9 out of 10 lying guests also all conveniently have 2-4 encounters. Not one amazing encounter but many. Makes me think wes coaches em into it to make his hour long show. At this point you may ask me: “man why listen? Just find another podcast” Fair enough! I guess it’s the outlandish way grown mostly men some women can lie straight through their teeth very poorly. Also the way miss Wes literally believes every single account he gets as the bottom of the barrel is scraped for fibbers. Episode 630 conveniently had 3 encounters. 2 of his own and his “cousins” encounter. If you do sense the lie fest listening to this garbage just pay attention for the tell tell signs: -ridiculous detail trying to build up to the big whopper. Example: “I had my gun with me. Yea it’s a 300 AAC blackout, really nice. I built it 3 years ago ya know? Oh and it’s suppressed, that means it has a silencer ya know?” And on and on and on.... -constantly repeats “you know how “ and “you know what I mean?” And the classic “I’m gonna be honest with you” or “I’m not gonna lie to you” -it happened when I was a kid. -I used to hunt but not anymore OR...... I wanna keep hunting so it musta been a “weird” bear. OK RIGHT.... A BEAR? SO THATS WHY U CALLED A SASQUATCH FIBBER SHOW TO TELL ABOUT A BEAR? -I was in the military -my buddy is a cop and he was with me -“like I said” AND SO MUCH MORE I DONT EVEN WANNA THINK ABOUT.... AND YES EPISODE 630 GUEST YOU ARE BEGGING FOR MONEY! How about the gushing sausage parties swooning over miss Wes and “how great a guy he is for believing us” you idiots.... you make his content and pay his bills with your fibs. Sure he goes overboard “really appreciating you for coming on the show” and “wow that’s a super duper interesting encounter” and always reminding everyone (Wes that is) of his encounter he had. TELL ABOUT IT THEN MISS WES! Or rather FIB ABOUT IT! Prob be entertaining? I can’t wait to call in to tell about my riveting encounter with Man-Bear-Pig. So horrific! The thing viciously patrols my county only killing people with red hair. And Sasquatch’s It tears out their anus’s after killing its victim then cooks the part on the George Foreman grill fused in its right bear arm. It only drinks the gel substance from sterno cans. It’s a master big foot hunter too enslaving the young big foot creatures. Wes: “that’s an amazing story man!”

Greatest Hits   (5/5)

This podcast is like buying an album from your favorite artist and discovering that each song is the best song... Each episode is epic, thoughtful and poignant. And the lead singer, Phoebe so to speak, has a memorable and unique voice that adds its own flavor to each greatest hit.

Always has such great stories   (5/5)

Love phoebes voice so relaxing and everyone I have sent this podcast to loves it too!

This is Love   (5/5)

How do they find such fantastic stories!? And let’s face it the production value is second to none. Thank you!

This Is Love   (5/5)

I love podcasts. This podcast is top among them. The episodes have given me goosebumps, choked me up, reassured me that the various expressions of love I have experienced are not just my imagination, given me hope for our shared journey through life, intrigued me, and made me laugh out loud. Since I have now listened to all of the episodes I will need to find out what else these creators are up to.

Absolutely Wonderful!   (5/5)

Each episode is better than the last. I could listen to this podcast every day! Icing on the cake is Phoebe’s narrative. Brava!

I love it!   (5/5)

Thanks Phoebe! It’s funny how Criminal and This Is Love are about such different subject matter yet both really speak to the human experience in beautiful ways. Can’t get enough!

Phoebe is my favorite podcast host   (5/5)

I started listening to Criminal last year and now also This is Love. The storytelling on both is easy to listen too and I always learn something new which is more than I can say about a lot of content I’m subjected too.

Need a different host!   (4/5)

Love the premise, love the stories.... but I can’t stand the way Phoebe talks!! One star knocked off for her “accent”

Love   (5/5)

These stories are, beautiful, open heart, soulful journeys. What a fantastic discovery. A true pleasure in this topsy turvy world we find ourselves in. Hard to stop at one listen a day. Thanks Phoebe!

The Next Diane Sawyer and Team.   (5/5)

Exceptional. Phoebe and her team do such a great job. The best thing about this podcast is that you always learn something new and you feel like your there in the experience. I feel that this has to do with the entire narration and sound and of course interview. So very real something I love. This includes criminal too. Thank you Phoebe and team.

Nice job   (4/5)

Though no one seems to focus on it much, more wolves were released into the Idaho wilderness than into Yellowstone in the mid-90s. It would be great if people would lobby the state for wolf viewing areas. Thanks Rick McIntyre for being such a great ambassador.

Love   (5/5)

What a wonderful way to spend my time.

The Best   (5/5)

How do Phoebe and her team find these incredible stories ... the wolves episode ... how to be alone ... all of them. Thank you Phoebe and crew for rendering these fundamental depths for us all.

Phoebe IS the Show!   (5/5)

I am an intelligent, active 72 year old woman who has been going out of her mind during the quarantine! I decided to try Podcasts because I can listen while I clean or cook or garden. I love all things mystery/crime/ get the idea. Anyway I chose a few and started to listen. Then I found “Pheobe Reads a Mystery.” I became an instant fan and immediately fell in love with Pheobe’s voice! Her affiliation with a PBS station put her over the top, and when I discovered “Criminal” I knew her podcasts are the ones I’m going to listen to, even after the COVID-19 quarantine is done! I love listening to all the different kinds of crime she delves into. Her guests are often unusual and quirky and they are always interesting. I’m starting to listen to “This Is Love” today! I’m sure it will be wonderful!

Love Phoebe!   (5/5)

Phoebe has an amazing ability to tell a story! I could sit and listen for hours.

Thank you   (5/5)

Thank you for focusing on what really matters: LOVE, in a time where the world needs it most. These stories will make you laugh, cry and fill your heart to the brim with joy and gratitude. Thank you Phoebe and team, this is wonderful.

Applause!!   (5/5)

I enjoy this wonderful podcast as much as the others Phoebe has...wonderfully curated, excellent presentation & great for listening at work.

This is Love   (5/5)

It is. I love this podcast and hard work it must take for this vision to be forged into the wonderful stories I love listening to. Just the research alone that y’all have done telling my ears facts I would never ever known otherwise. Wolves is a very powerful and wonderful story. Can’t wait for more. Y’all rock!

Wolves   (5/5)

Just blown away. The most amazing “love story” I’ve ever heard. Will carry this story in my heart forever.

Speechless   (5/5)

I don’t write a ton of reviews. Or any at all. But Rosella and Michael from 2020 season was such a beautiful story with tears of joy and love that I was compelled to write a review and give this podcast 5 stars! Must listen! Thank you!!

Wolves episode   (5/5)

This was a wonderful episode, had me in tears in my car, driving home from work. Thank you!

Positivity   (5/5)

Really uplifting in tough times. Love the wolf story!

Best, most unique podcast   (5/5)

I absolutely love this podcast. I look forward to new episodes and stories. I love the narrator

Someone’s cutting onions   (5/5)

You’re killing me with the 2020 episodes. Such beautiful stories, with lessons for us humans to learn from.

Rosella and Michael   (5/5)

What a fantastic story. Love this podcast so much. So glad it’s back.

Just Lovely   (5/5)

I enjoy every one of these episodes. The wolf one and ‘How to Be Alone’ are my favorites. My dad is living in Italy right now, so they are especially intriguing. These are just nice stories that are well researched and sweet. Amazing.

This is Love   (5/5)

Both of these podcasts are the BEST! I so look forward to listening to them both! They are so well-done and interesting. I feel like I have learned so much by listening to them. Highly recommended!!!

Thank you   (5/5)

I’ve been listening to Criminal for years, and love it. I listened to the wolf episode, and then had to know more about these wolves so came to listen to the This is Love episode. I have since listened to every This is Love podcast, and can’t wait for more. It’s so nice to have Phoebe’s soothing voice sharing stories of love while we’re dealing with such trying and uncertain times. Thank you.

Wolves   (5/5)

I just cried like a baby listening to this episode!! SO SO GOOD! I’ve been a Criminal fan for years & decided to check this out bc of your related Wolf episode & gosh... So glad I did. Beautiful!! Keep up the incredible work. I can’t wait for every new episode. Now I have 2 podcasts to look forward to. ❣️👏🏼

LOVE!   (5/5)

Been subscribed to criminal and this is love for a long time. I love the stories! Phoebe is the best of the best when it comes to podcasting. She pronounces every letter in every word which I love lol! She knows how to tell a story that will draw you in and feel like you’re there! Suscribe!!

Animals, oh my heart.   (5/5)

I’ve always enjoyed This Is Love, but those new season on animals I know will be my favorite. So heartwarming, the wolf episode absolutely made my day.

Always looking for the next episode   (5/5)

I absolutely love this cast. It makes me feel good that someone is out there looking for love in the world in all ways. I love Criminal too, so this flip side of the human condition is so good to have. Thank you!

Simply amazing   (5/5)

A feel good podcast all around ! You just need to listen

Full of love!   (5/5)

I love these podcasts. Especially the one about the swimmer and the baby whale and the most recent one about wolves. Fascinating and full of love. Phoebe is great.

Love these stories!!   (5/5)

Absolutely love these feel good stories! Phoebe’s voice is so soothing. I could listen to her all day! Thanks for such heart warming stories! Keep them coming!!

Glad you’re back!   (5/5)

I was so thrilled that new stories were going to be coming back to Love! The deep dive into all sorts of interesting topics with the underlining theme of love, is what makes me listen as soon as a new podcast is released. And it’s not a mushy kind of love story, but rather an educational...the world is bigger than you...sort of love story. Phoebe and the team do a fantastic job in narrating a story to make you feel as though you are right there with them. You all are doing a stellar job! Emily

The Wolves of Yellowstone   (5/5)

Phoebe, this was the best episode you have ever done, and you’ve got an excellent track record. I have pushed this episode onto everyone who will listen to me, whether they are familiar with podcasts or not. Everyone loves it - you knocked it out of the park. Many of us went straight to Amazon and bought Rick McIntyre’s book The Rise of Wolf 8 after we listened to this episode. And you say the whole season is about animals - I can hardly wait. Excellent. Just excellent.

A wonderful podcast!   (5/5)

Thank you for an uplifting, heartwarming positive podcast. We all need more of this❤️

Ended up here after catching up on Criminal   (5/5)

So beyond heartwarming... indescribable feelings from these stories. Just got to episode 6 and I’m crying for the second time 😭 I love this podcast so much! Thank you 💛

Great story telling   (5/5)

I seek out this is criminal every two weeks to see if a new episode as arrived. Phoebes voice is so engrossing and calming. I’m going to hear about a human story that draws one in yet isn’t scary, doesn’t rely on violence. I love radio stories.

Just as good as Criminal   (5/5)

I love the storytelling on Criminal but the name of this podcast just kind of turned me off. I guess I was imagining sappy love stories. Of course, I should have known better. It has the same high quality and deft storytelling but the focus is a different. I’m 5 episodes in and 4/5 have made me cry.

The Wolves   (5/5)

Are you kidding me?! I have not been so entranced by a podcast in such a long time! “The Wolves” is such a good listen and so interesting! One of those stories you which would go on and on! Well done!

The Wolves , the Violens et al.   (5/5)

Touching, poignant, absolutely beautiful This is Love The voice, the content, the wonder Gracious

Tears   (5/5)

I’ve been moved to tears by this podcast! Sometimes I love the episodes so much I play them for my young children, they sat silent listening to the entire story about the baby whale. Thank you for this podcast!

Wow, the wolves!!!   (5/5)

Such a wonderful episode. Thanks

Swoon   (5/5)

Phoebe Judge has the most wonderful voice in radio, and no one finds more amazing stories than she does. The baby whale story may be the most wonderful thing I’ve ever heard!

Love.   (5/5)

Love the content. Have been listening since day one, but the Wolves episode is definitely my new favorite.

Simply incredible love stories   (5/5)

I loved the first season of “This is Love” and was intrigued by the animal theme of the second season. After listening to the first episode about wolves, I am hooked all over again!! Somehow Phoebe finds the most compelling stories and it truly opens my perspective of love and warms my heart!! Can’t wait for more!

The best podcast, period.   (5/5)

The new season beginning with The Wolves is so incredibly moving. You’ve been my favorite show for years and I’m thrilled we’ve got a new season featuring animals to look forward to! If you’re just getting on board during a quarantine, this podcast will bring you a smirk and some much needed happiness.

A must have podcast!   (5/5)

I hesitated subscribing to this podcast even though I’m a huge fan of Criminal. I was pleasantly surprised when I finally listen during season 3 and had to download the other seasons. After listening to the episode about the wolves in Yellowstone I decided I HAD to write a review. Thanks so much for the stories!!!! I’m addicted!!!

Heartwarming, can’t stop listening!   (5/5)

I binged in this podcast and I wish there were more episodes. Just what I needed while on quarantine. Thank you for all the wonderful work you do!

Must listen   (5/5)

I’m quite literally ugly crying listening to a story about wolves.

So heartwarming   (5/5)

New favorite episode... the wolves ... baby whale is a close second!

All hail Phoebe Judge   (5/5)

I’ve been a big fan of Criminal for years and have really enjoyed This is Love as well. Today’s episode “Episode 19 - The Wolves” was the perfect, heartwarming distraction from the inundation of COVID19 news. I’m sending it to lots of friends & family and describing it as a wolf soap opera. Thank you Phoebe Judge and team!

You’re back!   (5/5)

Few things have made me as happy to see This is Love is back with new episodes! This podcast has filled my heart over and over. I have shared it with so many. Your messages are profound and important and I am thrilled you’re back with more. Thank you!

Melts my frozen heart   (5/5)

Phoebe! You’re making me cry with each episode! This is so heartwarming, sometimes funny, definitely smile-inducing and a tearjerker. Love this podcast! You’re making social distancing so much better for me.

season 4!!!!   (5/5)

i literally SCREAMED when i saw the preview for season 4. this is my all time favorite pod ever and i’ve been listening to episodes on repeat for months. can’t wait to see what is in store for us!!

I love This is Love !   (5/5)

I love Criminal and I’m so thankful that this was suggested to me in the related podcasts!! The first couple episodes really made me smile!!

Are you restarting this podcast ever?   (5/5)

Surely in a world of 7.7 billion human beings there are plenty more love stories to tell.

Please come back!!!   (5/5)

The stories are incredible and warm and lovely.... your voice is so kind and soothing, I’m sorry I binged and now I must be patient for your return. Thank you for these beautiful stories.

Awesome Podcast!   (5/5)

I can’t remember how I came across this podcast, but it’s absolutely adorable and the stories are full of love! All kind of loves! Looking forward for new episodes!

Finally! A podcast that doesn’t make you feel sad.   (5/5)

A feel good podcast, for once. The world isn’t as dark as all the crime podcasts make you think it is.

My palette cleanser   (5/5)

I need something calm & relaxing & a little happy before bed. And this is it.

What’s going on ?   (5/5)

Where are you guys !? I’ve been waiting for a new story for the longest time and I’m just wondering if you guys intend on coming back. I fell in love with your stories since my first episode and now I completely regret ever having binged it because it’s over.

More episodes please!   (5/5)

Will you be doing any new episodes? After binge listening to Criminal, I got hooked on This is Love. Such great stories and great storytelling by Phoebe! Is it over or will there be more?

Is “This is Love” finished?   (5/5)

We miss it!

The best...   (5/5)

Oh boy, I thought I loved Criminal (and I do), but oh how I love, This is Love! I absolutely adore Phoebe’s presentation. I think it is real, and warm and just lovely story telling. 💕

In love with This Is Love   (5/5)

I’m a fan from Criminal who has come to love this podcast dearly, enough to postpone listening to episodes for tough days as I know it will revive them. Thank you for the thoughtful, critical, compassionate, deeply nuanced looks into aspects of love in our world few consider, or do but can’t express.

What a joy!   (5/5)

I just finished listening to Memory Artist and was totally entranced.

One of my favorite podcasts   (5/5)

Wonderful stories about wonderful characters.

Simply beautiful   (5/5)

What a lovely bunch of stories from Phoebe Judge. I adore this podcast.

Phoebe’s delivery makes it unlistenable   (1/5)

Everyone loves a love story right? For that reason I would love to love this podcast, but I cannot abide host Phoebe’s delivery. I try, but I just can’t take it. Every clause, phrase and SENTENCE has the same ARC to a crescendo and emphasis on the last WORD. It’s like fingernails on a BLACKBOARD to my EARS.

I love love   (5/5)

Interesting and beautiful stories of love of varying kinds. All unique and all amazing to listen to. Wish there were more episodes and that they would announce when new ones were coming out

Antithesis to Criminal   (5/5)

Great balance to the tougher topics explored in Criminal, which is also smart, thoughtful and entertaining. So great to enjoy rare, intelligent programming. Kydos.

Loving Love   (5/5)

I first heard of this podcast from "Criminal" with Phoebe Judge. I absolutely am in love hearing about love. It is sad, happy, heartfelt, frustrating... Which I think accurately describes love, in general. I love how Phoebe tackles each topic and I admire how she is always so respectful. 🙌🏻🙌🏻

What is there to say? Phoebe is an amazing writer and storyteller and interviewer with a beautiful voice. My best moment with This Is Love this far happened so unexpectedly during the episode “How to Live Forever”. Ms. Judge inserts a moment so deeply personal and heartbreaking, and so surprising, I burst into loud sobs while driving. I love to listen to This Is Love. It is fine and interesting and truly lovely. Thank you to all involved. A must listen and follow.

Absolutely, wonderful podcast   (5/5)

You truly haven’t lived if you don’t already listen to this podcast . Breathtakingly, beautiful stories. An absolute must subscription.

So touching   (5/5)

One of the most beautiful shows I’ve found— both for stories and sound design.

Such a lovely show   (5/5)

Just as wonderful as criminal

Beautiful   (5/5)

Everything about this podcast draws me in and keeps me intrigued, from Phoebe’s voice, to the quality of the stories, to the excellent production. I only wish there were more episodes to listen to. I’m on my third time through the entire series and will probably not stop. Truly one of the best podcasts out there.

This is Love. The Laotian brother and sister who started a restaurant in Raleigh   (5/5)

Beautiful story about family love and devotion and missing their father and mother. Very well told. The strong bond of love in families. Really good.

Love it!   (5/5)

I love the host, I love the stories. It’s so Good and well produced!

Story telling is an art   (5/5)

Her voice is soothing and the story telling is epic... an art that is lost to most.

One of the best podcasts out there   (5/5)

An absolutely amazing podcast and such interesting stories and the most soothing voice you will ever hear. Thanks Phoebe!

Wonderful   (5/5)

I fully believe that this woman’s voice is the reason I keep living. But also love this podcast. Found it through Nancy and I’m so glad I did. Beautiful stories told perfectly. You guys are all complaining about her voice. Y’all crazy

A Goldmine   (5/5)

I share this podcast with everyone because it is truly a treasure. I wish there were more episodes.

Good show but why such awkward voice?   (4/5)

The podcast is interesting but the narrator’s voice is really annoying, comes off as so phony.

So good, wish there was more!   (5/5)

Incredible podcast with compelling stories, just wish there was more episodes! No new content coming out and no mention of when it will be...

Host is too breathy   (2/5)

Good content but the hosts voice sounds super contrived—weird and breathy like you’re listening to some sex phone line

Positive story telling   (5/5)

I listen to an episode whenever I need a pick Me up or a change in perspective. This show helps me to be grateful for so many things and I appreciate the changes it has created in my mind on days when I may be feeling less than grateful. It is a great way to transition from work to home after a long day in a cubicle.

Something completely different !   (5/5)

I love this show, and I can’t wait for acu episode to drop. It’s so unique and heartwarming each and every time. So many different angles of “love” and what it means in this world. Please never stop.

Inspirational!   (5/5)

This is Love, is one of my favorite podcasts! It spreads love to its listeners in unusual ways. I am a teacher and some of the podcasts have assisted me in my own work, and allowed me to reach more of my students in different ways. The podcast is a wonderful reflective tool on life in general. I highly recommend! This is a podcast for anyone!

Fell in love with this podcast   (5/5)

I started listening to the podcast and fell in love with this one. I always look forward to listening new stories. So much love. Thank you for sharing it.

Can't Stand Phoebe's Voice   (2/5)

The stories themselves are varied and sometimes interesting, even affecting. But as a musician I end up gritting my teeth over Phoebe Judge's vocal tics. The way she pauses after. every. word. and her monotone inflection make it hard for me to listen all the way through an episode. Started with enthusiasm but I've dropped the series.

Thank You   (5/5)

These stories make a difference in the world by bringing beauty to so many people. Who could ask for anything more. Take a bow.

It’s good   (4/5)

It’s good

Phoebe Judge FanGirl   (5/5)

Yup. That’s me. Full disclosure, I’m a huge Criminal fan, which then made a huge This is Love Fan. Phoebe Judge should be narrating everything. Politics, sports, news, reality shows, etc. the content of these 2 shows is fantastic & Phoebe just elevates them to a new level. BTW I named my own daughter Phoebe (true fact).

First episode, shot through the heart, the rest follow through   (5/5)

I cannot praise this podcast enough. This is love, indeed. Little did I know I’d fall for this podcast. Take a listen if you’re a fan of life, of living, of podcasts.

Amazing   (5/5)

I can’t explain to you how much I love this podcast. The diversity that shows different types of love has me absolutely enthralled.

Beautiful!!!!   (5/5)

Eight thousand miles had me holding back some tears. So glad I found this podcast, makes you feel the love!!!

Better & better   (5/5)

So much fun, thank you! I loved the man-alone-40-years story. Fascinating.

Really enjoyable!   (5/5)

This must be love. Thanks Phoebs and all. You had me at the ugly episode.

This is loving it♥️   (5/5)

I tear up every episode.. oddly enough, that means it’s good. If you like feel-good podcasts you’ve found an exceptional one. I call this the hallmark of podcasts. Amor Vincit Omnia

Gave this podcast a try...   (1/5)

The stories are mildly interesting, but what puts me over the edge to unsubscribe is phoebe judge. She’d rather hear her own voice than those of the people she interviews. Her boring monotone voice puts me to sleep every time. I end up falling asleep because all end up sounding the same because Phoebe judge has a very limited way of thinking. She puts her spoon on every podcast episode and they all blend together-blah.

So wonderful!   (5/5)

This is one of my favorite podcasts of all time! Such great stories, and such a inexpensive definition of love. Creative, beautiful, high-quality production. I can’t praise it enough. Thank you!

Love   (5/5)

Love love love phoebe judge

Great podcast   (5/5)

Everyone should listen to this podcast. Very interesting

Heartwarming   (5/5)

I love this podcast!!! So heartwarming, genuine stories told. Some stories made me cry, because they really pull at your heartstrings. I love the hosts voice and way of storytelling is so soothing and relaxing.

Phoebe Judge is life   (5/5)

Along with her other podcast, Criminal, Phoebe and her team put together a really great podcast. They’re so well produced, interviewed, and told. This podcast has me laughing, crying and smiling and I appreciate how Phoebe brings her personality and compassion into each episode. So worth the listen!!

Beautiful Listen   (5/5)

Love can present itself in so many different ways, all of which have meaning and this show does a beautiful job of showing this. Great storytelling!

Phenomenal and Inspirational series   (5/5)

I am completely enjoying this series! Just now I finished Eight Thousand Miles and have happy tears rolling down my cheeks. I have two left to listen to...Well done and wonderful examples of LOVE♥️

Love!   (5/5)

What a gem! I love how sincere and thoughtful this podcast is! Thank you!

Please Keep Making Episodes!!   (5/5)

I love this series so so so much. It’s a total heart swell AND thinker. Great combo, great content, just all around lovely.

How is this not universally 5 stars   (5/5)

Beautiful stories that are reflect the reality of love and not the Hollywood version of it. This is Love does amazing story telling and is a great sister podcast to Criminal.

LOVE IT!   (5/5)

Keep going you guys love this pod and Criminal as well - Extremely well done!!!

Love love love!!   (5/5)

Each episode has me in tears, both happy and sad. But mostly happy. Please make more episodes!!

Lovely   (5/5)

Everything Phoebe touches is gold. The only thing stopping my Criminal withdrawals now that I’ve listened to all available episodes.

Deep and Beautiful!   (5/5)

This is beautifully produced—from the selected stories (all touching) to the sound quality. I turn this on and feel so relaxed, but also turn these stories around in my mind for days after.

So touching - makes you believe in good again   (5/5)

Like a lot of other listeners, I listen to a LOT of true crime. I love Criminal, and really liked the episodes of This is Love that they played on that podcast. This show has made me cry or tear up every single episode, it’s so touching and I am NOT a crier!! Listening to this show makes me believe in love again. Phoebe’s interviewing talents really shine here, she really brings out the tenderness in people.

Antidote to True Crime overload   (5/5)

I love true crime podcasts. It’s weird, I know, but there it is. I’ve enjoyed Criminal so when this popped up, by the same crew, I thought “Why not?” I love it!! (See what I did there?)Interesting stories, well presented that give me warm fuzzies and revive my faith in the human race. Good job This is Love team.

Wonderful!   (5/5)

A wondeeful positive podcast isn’t trite, isn’t too light nor too heavy. Interesting complicated positive stories about love of all kinds, a wonderful treat!

In Love   (5/5)

I enjoy listening to Phoebe. Her soft voice is very soothing. Love all the episodes especially Episode 4. It got me in tears since I can relate a little with being an immigrant. It touched my heart and warm thoughts of the siblings “love story”.

Need MORE!!   (5/5)

With so much sadness in the world and on radio this podcast gives you relief and many happy tears. Please keep them coming This Is Love Team!! Great work!

This is Love   (5/5)

The episode about the snails was just perfect... an accurate explanation of snail behavior... serious... but with such a light, whimsical undertone. Perfect!!! Other episodes were good too. What I also enjoyed is the vast variety of topics that ALL fit under “love”!! Disagree with a listener who felt there was little point to these stories....if a listener expected a neat tidy package, This is NOT the podcast for him/her. It’s more in line with people who appreciate thoughtful in depth focus on one issue or experience. Thanks!!!

The voice!   (2/5)

Couldn't Get past the narrators voice. Sorry. Just couldn't.

Need more Love?   (5/5)

I wish we had more episodes every season. This is my absolute FAVORITE podcast. It’s hard to describe what makes it so special, but it’s always inspiring, intriguing and interesting. I find myself thinking about certain stories for months. Thanks, Phoebe, I LOVE your programming.

Love it ☺️   (5/5)

Love the love podcast 💕

Love   (5/5)

What is Love? How many ways can it be expressed? This podcast explores those questions and many others in such a variety of situations. It really makes you think about your how own life answers: what is love?

My positive energy recharger   (5/5)

I love this show. It helps me cope with any stress or exhaustion from the everyday noise and distractions. Thank you.

Love it!   (5/5)

Please make more! I love all of the stories and they are beautifully told. So many wonderful stories are out there for you to tell.

Beautiful and calming   (5/5)

Love this podcast. Listen to it if I’m gloomy or lonely, and it has a way of comforting me. Such beautiful stories.

Truly lovely   (5/5)

Just found this podcast today and I cannot tell you how much I’m enjoying it! Phoebe and company....wonderful podcast. ❤️

Amazing.   (5/5)

Listening in 2019. I listened to every single episode in the matter of a couple of days. Staying subscribed just in case another season comes out.

I would listen to Phoebe read the phone book   (5/5)

But, fortunately, it's not just Phoebe Judge's calming voice that makes this podcast so good. It's top notch storytelling about matters of the heart. Highly recommended.

This is 5 Stars   (5/5)

This is Love has made me laugh, cry, and has taught me more than I ever thought a podcast could. I was surprised by how quickly I became hooked on these short and beautiful stories.

Very pleasant to listen to   (5/5)

Lovely voice quiet presentation and professionally produced. Well done !

So great!   (5/5)

I love the simplicity and sweetness of these stories. More please!

So great   (5/5)

In a world where love is misrepresented so often, Phoebe represents love so well.

Podcast to Elicit the “Good Feels”   (5/5)

I’m a big fan of “This is Love” and how each episode will defer, but the theme of love (manifested in a variety of ways) is told through a story and history from another’s experience. Wonderful storytelling and even paced! I look forward to each new episode and love that I can feel content at the end of each episode (no matter the chaos of the world :D).

Thank you   (5/5)

Dear Phoebe, When I was growing up in the sixties and the seventies my mother would reminisce about her family huddled around the radio during the forties listening to the radio. For the first time, I get a glimmer of what my mother experienced by listening to your show. My daughter and I listened to your show and your guests with such excitement. We have discussions after the segment is over. True family time! Thank you for doing this show and thank you to all your guests for sharing their world with all of us. Best, A Grateful Mom

This is some of the good in the world   (5/5)

I love this podcast! It is so fascinating and each episode is individual. About all the different kinds of love there is in the world. It makes my heart happy to listen to this and helps to soothe away some of the ugliness in the world.

What a gem. What the world needs right now.   (5/5)

It’s hard to stand out as a podcast nowadays. Sensationalism sells. (For reference, I am a big true-crime podcast fan!) But the most touching and compelling stories can be found in what’s seemingly the most mundane of places. A man who raised two daughters. An athletic, compassionate swimmer. Two sibling restaurant owners. Every tale has a common thread of love of *something*. This podcast is at once familiar and unexpected. I laugh and cry almost every episode.

💕💕💕   (5/5)

I’ve cried a lot listening to this, really powerful and genuine look into love and how it presents itself

This is Love   (5/5)

This is such a treat! I absolutely adore every single report in this podcast.

Great Spin off series   (5/5)

I started listening to this because of the podcast Criminal. I was not disappointed. Every episode is beautiful. I’ve cried on a few of the stories I was most captivated with the Snail episode and baby whale episode.

Amazing   (5/5)

Love this podcast! Every story is so touching, the way each story is told feels so genuine and thoughtful. I’ve been telling all my friends about it and posting it on every social media account. So happy to find this!

I hope there will be more!   (5/5)

When I discovered the podcast I listened to each story. I enjoyed them immensely. Now that it’s 2019, will there be no more “This is Love”? I hope there will be more!

Misty eyed every episode   (5/5)

I found This is Love through my primary podcast listens — true crime — specifically Criminal. This podcast showcases poignant and interesting stories all relating to love in all its expressions. Highly recommend.

Not sappy - Just Beautiful   (5/5)

This show is so good! I've been a fan of Criminal since the beginning and was a bit skeptical of where Phoebe and team were going to go with this. I am so glad I stuck around for it! These stories are beautiful - they define love in so many different ways. They are incredibly poignant human (and sometimes animal!) stories that unfold in marvelous ways. Sometimes I cry, sometimes I take a deep breath, sometimes I smile... "all the feels" I suppose. But, as usual from this group, it's just excellent storytelling. Bravo!

It’s so pleasant   (5/5)

I listen to this podcast with my wife to relax together. We love the story and how it makes us feel after we finish each episode.

Straight to the heart   (5/5)

I love this podcast so much! It is diverse and layered while always laser focused on the subject at hand, love💘 I always take something away that opens my heart a little more and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to receive such guidance for free! Mahalo Ashley Judge 🙌😘

This is Podcast Love   (5/5)

Unconventional and suprising stories about love. They'll make you laugh, cry and gasp in surprise. I started with Criminal (Phobe's other podcast) and tried this one...they are now two of my favs. I only wish there were more episodes!

Refreshing happy stories   (5/5)

Love this podcast! It’s so nice to listen to something so happy. Well told as always!

Grayson   (5/5)

Wonderful podcast with very interesting content.

Delightful looks into love, in ways I’ve could never personally experience. Thank you, love is love.

I have throughly enjoyed every single episode. ❤️

Something to listen to when you need to smile   (5/5)

This show is amazing. I love the stories and look forward to listening to them. Have been a fan of Criminal for a while and was so excited when I found out “This is Love” was coming!! Been listening since the beginning and hope for many more episodes

Absolutely love this podcast   (5/5)

I really enjoy listening to This Is Love. The stories are interesting and beautiful. I’ve been having a hard time finding a new podcast to listen to, and this is the first one that has kept my interest and made me want to keep listening.

Amazing stories!   (5/5)

I can’t get enough of this podcast!

What a relief   (5/5)

I love this podcast, gives me something to look forward to. How to be alone is by far my favorite. Thank you for such a great collection of human experiences. It’s a pleasant escape when I am able to listen to how others handle their lives in good and in bad times

A Day Maker   (5/5)

This podcast makes my day.

This is lovely   (5/5)

This is just as wonderful as you’d expect from Phoebe Judge. Such interesting, funny, sweet stories. The latest episode ‘How to be Alone’ was particularly brilliant.

Heartwarming!   (5/5)

Such pure and genuine, loving stories. Love listening to this is love!!! Always brings a smile to my face and brightens my day

Beautiful   (5/5)

There’s something about a certain narrative that makes you think about who you are at a deeper level than you normally would and these stories do exactly that. Thank you Lauren, Nadia and Phoebe

Fills my heart with joy   (5/5)

I look forward to this podcast whenever there is a new episode available. One of the best keep up the good work!

love love love   (5/5)

Literally, how to fall in love with the world again. Such beautiful stories and presentation and people and things.

Good stories and more!   (5/5)

The episodes are carefully curated and wonderfully told stories! Phoebe Judge is a fantastic narrator and anyone who thinks otherwise is a Grade A Moron!

The narrator’s voice ruins it.   (1/5)

I was so excited about this podcast but for the life of me I couldn’t get past the narrator, Phoebe Judge’s voice. The breathy, monotone phoniness of it was too much. I tried!!!!

My #2   (5/5)

I love Dr Laura phone calls but this is my second most favorite! The stories are unique and entertaining.. must listen

This is Love   (5/5)

A really well done podcast that charms and uplifts and is happily free of crimes and bad news.

Diversity?   (3/5)

I’d love to hear some stories from some people of color. Hopefully that happens later in the season. 👩🏾‍🦱

I love Love   (5/5)

Look forward to this podcast every week!

Love love love   (5/5)

This podcast is so great! Love Phoebe Judge! The season 2 episode Nothing Compares is one of the best episodes they ever did!!! Go listen now!!!

Terrific   (5/5)

Great podcast!

I love the way Phoebe tells a story!   (5/5)

I look forward to both this and Criminal. I get drawn in to these stories about the human condition. Brilliant.

I’ll try it by giving you 3 stars.   (3/5)

Let’s see if you catch my interest...

Can’t stop listening   (5/5)

Found this recently and am thrilled to have a season worth to listen to. It’s so interesting, heartfelt, and diverse in the ways “love” is depicted.

Surprising, sincere, and emotionally moving.   (5/5)

I haven’t been charmed this much by a podcast since I first started listening to Radio Lab something like 6 years ago. What a gift to stumble across it halfway through season 2 with a wonderful backlog of stories at my fingertips. Each episode is so sweet and sincere, and for the seemingly played out theme of “love,” remarkable unique and interesting.

Beautiful and intriguing   (5/5)

I look forward to these stories every week. Thank you!

An interesting listen for sure but immature reporting neutrality   (5/5)

This podcast is an interesting listen indeed. However if you like listening to neutral investigative reporting that is able to get to the heart of issue, this doesn’t meet the mark. The reporters are clearly biased which is okay but their emotional investment influenced and skewed how they reported. The tone and level of reporting maturity of the podcast comes across snide and juvenile. Facts reported may be true and likely are but the tone in which reported negated any good investigation done.

This is a must listen!   (5/5)

Unique short love stories, but not what you expect.

In Love with This is Love!   (5/5)

This is such a fresh and smart podcast. I am typically drawn to true crime podcasts so I am thankful that I found this through Criminal, another cherished podcast. I even love the music, it’s so playful and mischievous which just fits! I’ve already shared it with a few friends. Keep them coming!! I can’t wait for more!

❤️   (5/5)

I love this podcast! Every episode gives me all the feels

Great storytelling   (5/5)

Fantastic stories, well told. Beautifully done.

Feel good stories   (5/5)

Thank you for spreading love.

Learn to love   (5/5)

This podcast proves that love comes in many forms, and how overwhelmingly strong it is. In a world with so much hate and controversy, it’s wonderful to escape in these stories of what truly matters in life.

Loved season 1..   (2/5)

Snails.. really?

This is amazing!   (5/5)

Just amazing!

More   (5/5)

More episodes please!

It’s the warm center   (5/5)

When it feels like the world has gone mad this podcast allows me to take a breath and smile. It’s easy to forget how important something so simple can be. Thank you for this. It’s such a genuine and wonderful reminds me that love comes in some many beautiful forms.

Happy Tears   (5/5)

I’ve always loved Phoebe Judge and have been listening to Criminal from the start, so when this new show came around I had to listen. These are such great stories. I cry almost episode, but it’s such a good cry. If you’re looking for something that’s easy as will make you feel good, this is the one.

Wonderfully Beautiful   (5/5)

I love this so much! Brief, happy, meaningful. Thank you!

Whatever the intention is- I loved it!   (5/5)

Okay so I feel kinda crazy now... When I first started listening to the podcast- I had started with the truth- which had me laughing randomly- and hard. Then I switched to their (my attention span is of a childs) “this is love” podcast. I laughed...randomly at little quirks and details. Sometimes I thought certain parts were so funny- I would scream. Now, today is a new day...and I realize maybe I was laughing where intention wasn’t really supposed to be so? Either way- it was a pretty awesome trip. 😂 “you’re gonna have to learn how to find the grape jelly yourself- I’m not gonna be here always” or something like that. Please do more.

Just beautiful   (5/5)

A breath of fresh air. Phoebe is phenomenal as always and the stories bring a smile to my face. A very well done podcast!

XxxB   (3/5)

worth to share. commended! good job very awesome!

My favorite radio producers   (5/5)

This is love, like criminal, is masterfully made. The stories are always so well thought of, thought provoking and evoke so much emotion. Phoebe Judge and others who work on the show know how to ask the right questions and when they’re not leading the conversation they know how to put the conversation in a context. I highly recommend both shows to listeners, they are truly enjoyable.

Brilliant and beautiful   (5/5)

Phoebe’s bold, humanizing and iconic voice is reason enough to listen and yet these stories and this level of storytelling is so powerful that even she plays a supporting role to the podcast’s essential message of human connection and love. These folks really know what they’re doing.

Highlight of my day   (5/5)

It’s my favorite new podcast. Love love the stories and love the sound of Phoebe’s voice.

Simply the best there is.   (5/5)

I am a podcast fanatic and embarrassingly haven’t left a review for any of my many favorites. But as soon as Phoebe asked listeners to write a review for This is Love, I did so- because it is perfect. It is fascinating, inspiring, diverse, heartwarming, informative... I could go on and on. Listen and make sure someone you live listens too.

Refreshing, sweet   (5/5)

Outstanding!! Food for the soul.

Heartfelt ❤️🙏❤️   (5/5)

Exceptional Stories unfolding before You of Enduring Love ❤️

Disappointed   (1/5)

Loved season one, wonderful stories of selfless, wonderful people doing for other but you start season 2 with a couple of folks using their ultra wealth to live forever... I almost lost it when you asked how do you keep the relationship going after 36 years when you just told me how they helicopter around to all their homes and compounds all over the place, c’mon, their eclectic, verging in weird and wildly rich so they can create their own “think” alike robots What about this is Love?

Brings me moments of joy!   (5/5)

This podcast brightens my day and brings me moments of awe, joy, and peace. I am so happy it is back. I have shared it with family and friends. Thank you for sharing stories of love from around the world. I can’t think of anything the world needs more.

We need these stories!   (5/5)

My spirit has been uplifted today! We need these stories more than ever! Thank you for your important work and the reminder that pure and simple love exists!

Love it!   (5/5)

I absolutely love this show. I checked it out because I love Criminal. It’s awesome. I never get tired of it, and I can’t wait for new episodes. Good job guys.

Awesome   (5/5)

Such a sweet and heartfelt podcast in a time when there is a lot of hate it’s nice to have some love.

Beautiful   (5/5)

It’s so nice to listen to these carefully crafted pieces on a powerful subject. I’m feeling fatigued by all the true crime entertainment (Criminal is dope though) and This is Love serves as a palette cleanser. <3

Pleasant Show   (5/5)

Same great crew and they bring the same passion from Criminal. I’m excited for season 2.

Wow!   (5/5)

What a beautiful podcast. Wonderful storytelling!

I am James Benoit... And this is my review   (5/5)

Phoebe, you are phenomenal! In an audio medium it's harder to make stories jump at you, and you crush it EVERY time!

Great show   (5/5)

A well crafted show just as interesting as criminal.

Love it   (5/5)

OMG!!!! What an amazing podcast. One of my favorites besides criminal. I really love the stories they are very touching and detailed. You have to be one the best narrators and host I’ve heard Ms. Judge. I am on the road a lot and your podcast make my drives so much better that I don’t even want to reach my destination. Thank you please keep it up and keep them coming as often as possible.

Bad   (1/5)


Perfect listen   (5/5)

Love it. Love Criminal, too. Keep em ciming.

This is by far one of the best podcast out there   (5/5)

I’ve listened to many podcasts/audio books and this by far is one of my favorite! So glad season 2 is coming!!

Stories that have restored my faith in humanity.   (5/5)

If you want to cry in public, this is your podcast. Phoebe Judge is just as great, if not better, in this pod than she is in Criminal. I really enjoyed the personal stories in Season 1 of “This Is Love.” I’d listen if I was having a bad day and it would make me feel better - like good people really are out there. These are important stories to tell. Looking forward to Season 2!

Enjoyable twist   (4/5)

When are more episodes coming out?

Inspiring!   (5/5)

More please :)

If Phoebe is narrating, I’m listening!   (5/5)

I first found Criminal podcast. It is AWESOME! Each episode of Criminal is different and fascinating! Eventually, I heard Phoebe Judge make mention of another podcast she hosted. At first, my thought was there is NO way I was going to turn the corner from listening to crime shows. However, I reluctantly acquiesced and listened to 1 show. That’s all it took. I’m hooked!

Heartwarming   (5/5)

Love this show! Amazing love stories from around the world.

I love Criminal so I was excited to listen This is Love. I was not disappointed. So wonderful I think I like it more than Criminal. My favorite episode was about Grayson.

Something Large and Wild melts your heart   (4/5)

The story of something large and wild was the most adorable thing I’ve heard. Makes you realize love is shown in a variety of ways.

Best podcast out there!   (5/5)

Queer Eye of Podcasts   (5/5)

What an amazing podcast. If you love Queer Eye, you’ll love This Is Love. Original, inspiring love stories that will make you laugh, cry, and think about the true meaning of love.

These stories....   (5/5)

I’m so in love! I’ve only heard the first two episodes, but I’m hooked and my heart is so warm!

Murderinos-   (5/5)

So love Criminal, SSDGM too, you get he idea. I need this to recover from that phase of my life. True crime for life but PLEASE god can LOVE be the new trend? There are immigrant stories, Queer stories, and one with a woman who swims with a lost baby whale! Thank you for this beautiful podcast!!!!!

Love, love, love this is love   (5/5)

What a lovely, uplifting, heart-felt show!

THE podcast for these days.   (5/5)

I’m always surprised and inspired by this gem-of-a-podcast.

Inspiration and humbling   (5/5)

Stories that show you that you don’t need to do anything incredibly extravagant or boosters to have and show love. That we can be human and live life and have it filled with love. I love it

LOVE ! Need more!   (5/5)

Wow this podcast touched my heart. When are we getting more?!? 💞😍

Touching   (5/5)

Beautiful, touching, incredible stories.

Simply Perfect.   (5/5)

The content and the stories are unique and intriguing. Phoebe Judge’s voice is so soothing that I can listen to these stories while having a stressful day at work or before going to bed. Please continue to find these stories and report on them so thoroughly and thoughtfully!

Need more “Love”   (5/5)

Where are you?

What this world needs...LOVE STORIES   (5/5)

I usually listen to True Crime, but I wanted to expand my horizons and experience lighter subject matter. Very happy to find this!

Just the best   (5/5)

This is Love and Criminal are two of the best podcasts. They cover a wide range or topics and cover them very well. They are produced impeccably, never shy away from a challenging topic, and give voice to people we would never hear from otherwise. Then there is Phoebe Judge. He voice makes me feel home. She is fantastic and takes already extraordinary work to the next level.

Ready for the second season   (5/5)

Flew through the first season and can’t wait for the second. I love this pod & Criminal for the twists you don’t expect and the heartfelt realism of life that makes you gasp, laugh, cry, and wait on the edge of your seat for the next ep.

Wow!   (5/5)

I listen to a lot of storytelling podcasts and have heard hundreds of tales this way over the years. The second episode of this series, “Something Large and Wild”, is one of the best I have ever heard. Highly recommend this podcast.

Episode 1   (5/5)

I’m new to podcasts all-together and had tears in my eyes listening to this first episode while watching waves crash on a beach in Kauai. Such a sweet and simple love story that sadly I can relate to. Thank you.

Please continue posting new episodes   (5/5)

Just recently discovered this podcast. Love it! Need more episodes.

LOVED THIS   (5/5)

such an endearing podcast!

So enjoyable and informative   (4/5)

I learn things and I feel emotional and positive when I listen to this podcast. I also appreciate the diversity of the stories. Keep it up.

Great alternative to news overload   (5/5)

I’m a news and political junkie. And story telling podcast lover. This is a wonderful positive and unique presentation of all types of love. Please continue.

Absolutely Captivating   (5/5)

Phoebe Judge’s amazing narrations, story telling, and journalism make these already amazing stories incredibly captivating. I just listened to the second episode while cooking and I had chills nearly the whole time.

Left a smile   (5/5)

I love this podcast!! It’s always leaves a smile on my face. Fun and easy to listen to.

Amazing   (5/5)

Stories definitely worth a listen! This show gives me a reminder of the many reasons I fell in love with my husband. It’s amazing how the littlest things we do for the one we love goes so far... An absolute deep inside, butterfly feeling, of how love is the beginning and end of all but never out of reach.

Lovely!   (5/5)

I listen to many, many podcasts, and this one is without a doubt one of my favorites. Everyday we are buried under mountains of bad news and negativity. It is so empowering to hear these wonderfully produced tales of LOVE. Beautiful storytelling! This makes me want to be a better husband, father, and human being.

Interesting   (5/5)

So interesting. Great to listen to on a car ride. Doesn’t require you to pay your full attention but keeps you interested.

Great podcast   (5/5)

I loved Criminal so I had to listen to This Is Love. It was more than I expected. Touching, funny, and so real. Phoebe and her crew know how to put together a great story. I can’t wait for more!

Amazing. Griping.   (5/5)

The show was gripping in a completely different way but just as wonderful as Criminal. Even though the first season only had six episodes they are amazing. You just get lost in the storytelling. Another great podcast from Phoebe judge.

One of the best   (5/5)

I absolutely love how this podcast makes me feel. Please continue releasing episodes! I enjoy hearing Phoebe Judge’s voice— it’s extra soothing and lovely.

Beautiful   (5/5)

Love this podcast! The beautiful stories bring tears to my eyes.

Will writing a review mean more future episodes?   (5/5)

I sure hope so! This is such a wonderful podcast. It really turns expectations on its head with the topics of each episode. Really looking forward to hearing more!

Great show ... but the narrator’s voice!!!   (3/5)

I really love the stories but Ms. Judd, please stop with the vocal inflections. It would be so nice if you could just speak in a normal voice. In the radio biz, it’s called vocal “puking.”

Episode 2   (5/5)

I just finished listening to episode 2 of this podcast and I must say, it was one of the best episodes of a podcast that I have ever listened to. It was such a feel good story and so... magical, for lack of a better word. I’m really glad I subscribed to this podcast and can’t wait to listen to more episodes!

Lovely   (5/5)

Absolutely lovely podcast of real people and their stories. Episode 2 is my favorite so far. Beautifully spoke and all together well done.

One of my favorite podcast   (5/5)

Always very interesting stories. The show is pleasant to listen to, very well put together. I love the way the tales unfold and I always look forwards to the next one.

Love!   (5/5)

A beautiful break from True crime podcasts! Told delightfully well!

Ehhh.   (2/5)

I LOVE Criminal, so of course I was going to tune into this. I assumed this would have a dramatic climax somewhere in the story, but I was wrong. Nice stories, but not as exciting as I thought it would be. 😒

Love It!!! A must listen   (5/5)

My wife and I listen to each episode together really enjoy it. Can’t get enough of Criminal and now This is Love!!!!

Heard about this from Criminal podcast   (5/5)

Love this when I need something lighter to listen to , please keep them coming!

Love it!!!!   (5/5)

Can’t wait for more episodes!

This is love 💕   (5/5)

This is a podcast that has feel good stories, real life events and relatable issues and struggles of any person that pays attention to different cultures, lifestyles or themselves. Highly recommended. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ takes a not so great day and makes it awesome 😎

Bring it on!   (5/5)

I’m a huge fan of Criminal ....but this was a nice detour into something very positive and definitely heartwarming, thank you for these true and beautiful stories.

I was excited about this but.....   (3/5)

You don't have enough episodes- starting to get bored looking at my subscription. I enjoyed the past episodes.

8 Thousand Miles   (5/5)

I have enjoyed all the “This is Love”stories However, 8 Thousand Miles is my favorite. The story is touching, heartbreaking as well as so happy. I cried at the end. What a sweet family story and honor bestowed on the family patriarchs. Sparker61

Can’t wait for Season 2   (5/5)

I am a divorce lawyer, and I wish that there was an episode for every morning that I drive into work. Sounds cliche - but listening to this podcast reminds me that there is love in humanity ❤️.

Good show   (4/5)

Awesome show but they do not upload episodes that much! Wish it was more consistent but such awesome stories.

Humbling and heartwarming   (5/5)

Love listening first thing in the AM

LOVE,LOVE   (5/5)

I have mixed emotions!!! I hate it when I fall in love with a podcast and then have to wait a week or more for a new episode! Some people are such good hosts and know how to make a podcast interesting and keep you engaged! Phoebe Judge is one of those people!!!

Beautiful stories!!   (5/5)

I’ve loved every single story on this podcast! Phoebe Judge has a way of telling stories that hit at the heart of the human experience! These stories make you feel hope for humanity!

I love a Love Story   (5/5)

I love these “Love Stories”! They have been empowering and uplifting, and a great reminder to not take my own love stories for granted.

Best radio entertainment!   (5/5)

This show does a great job at entertaining my curious brain. Very different stories, but all perceived from an empathic angle, with a vibe that makes you smile despite of everything else that goes on on the radio and in the news.

Phenomenal Stories   (5/5)

Probably the best podcast out there IMO. I’ve shared this with so many people who have all repeatedly thanked me for doing so and have then passed it along to others as well. These are truly moving stories that evoke real emotion. Reminding us of what this life is really about. Simply love. Please hurry with more episodes!!! We are all eagerly waiting!! Xo

Loveeeeee   (5/5)

Love love the way she describes every story , I listen to all PLEASE POST MORE

A quick feel good series   (5/5)

I loved this series. Each episode gave me all the feels in a good way. I loved that each episode was short but filled with big stories. I can’t wait for the next season!!

Great Podcast   (5/5)

Let’s face it, a good podcast needs at least two things. An interesting story and a good voice to convey the story via podcast. Phoebe Judge has the perfect voice for podcasts. Her tone, inflection, and pronunciation create a beautiful flow resulting in the most enjoyable listening experience. Her other podcast, This is Criminal, is equally great simply because of Phoebe Judge.

Why did I wait so long?   (5/5)

Love it! #punintended such great story telling and true love stories-

Love Stories that are actually INTERESTING   (5/5)

I listened because I love Criminal and the work of Pheobe Judge and their crew. I now am a fan of This is Love for it's own merits. The stories are heartfelt but not sappy. Also the interview questions are unique to get to the heart of the story- pun intended. The only thing wrong with this podcast is that there wern't very many episodes. I hope that changes soon!

Worth it!   (5/5)

My time is valuable. The space in my head is sacred. This podcast rocks.

Really wonderful!   (5/5)

I am a fan of Criminal and love Phoebe Judge so it’s probably not surprising I love this podcast as well. Each episode has been a wonderful bit of happiness and I am looking forward to new episodes!

This is Love   (5/5)

Listened to all 6 episodes and thought they were wonderful. With so much sadness in the world it is delightful to hear an uplifting story. Thank you and I am eager for the next season.

Awesome storytelling series!   (5/5)

I look forward to this podcast every week, can’t wait for season 2!

I'm hooked!   (5/5)

I like Criminal, but This is Love gets me through my days at work. Can't wait until next Wednesday!

Unexpected   (3/5)

Much different than I expected, I thought it would dive into different Romaric relationships, which it does. However it more explores different aspects of love with various guests’ lives. I couldn’t really get into it because of how it’s presented. It jumped right into the story with no introduction. This leaves you with “catch up time” and it’s hard to feel engaged in the actual story.

Fantastic!   (5/5)

What a great podcast! One of my absolute new faves.

Touching and so well done!   (5/5)

Phoebe Judge is such an amiable journalist. It’s quite clear that this team works hard to select unique stories and to present them in a thought-provoking way. Each story has touched me. In what I perceive to be a society feeding on negativity, it is a breath of fresh air to hear these stories. They lift up our humanity. Keep the stories coming, Phoebe!

Connecting to something real   (5/5)

This podcast fills my heart and it’s beautiful to hear real peoples stories. Xx

Love!!   (5/5)

Need more episodes!!

8,000 Miles   (5/5)

There have been some really special stories on this podcast, and I hope to hear more. The one about 8,000 miles was incredible- I felt his struggle and his sister’s as they made it through immigration, school, and achieving their dreams at their parents’ sacrifice. Keep it going please!

Inspired   (5/5)

This is a great inspiring podcast for this time! There’s so much negativity floating around that people forget these stories. Thanks for bringing these to us!

It’s great!   (5/5)

Love the content. Really makes me think about others and our joint venture we’re making through life. More connects us than separates us.

Joyful, Refreshing, Fantastic Show!   (5/5)

This show is amazing! I LOVE love stories! Not all love stories are mushy and fuzzy and this show perfectly demonstrates that. Can’t wait for the next episode!

This is such a great podcast!   (5/5)

Lovely stories really heart touched

Heartwarming Show   (5/5)

I’ve cried a few times listening to this show. It’s not always a happy ending but its beautiful and hopeful. I’m in.

Refreshing!   (4/5)

A perfect podcast for the drive home! Looking forward to more episodes.

Thank you!   (5/5)

I tear up every time. In a good way. Phoebe has a way, and this way works for her too!

The Run   (5/5)

It’s so interesting to hear the voices of this family tell their own story.

Absolutely love this podcast!   (5/5)

Amazing host and wonderful stories. Highly recommended.

Powerful and beautiful stories!   (5/5)

Just listened to episode 2, and it made me so happy it brought tears to my eyes! I’m a huge fan of Criminal, and I love that this amazing team has another project. Y'all are so good at telling powerful stories. Thank you!!

Beautifully assembled/delivered 💕   (5/5)

This podcast is absolutely beautiful, Phoebe Judge has an incredible voice every episode has been total gold. Subscribe and bless your week with a little bit of joy.

Beautiful   (5/5)

Love how you never know where each story is going to take you but in the end you always think....”yes...this is love”

The quality of criminal with a more uplifting premise   (5/5)

Love Phoebe’s work on criminal, but this takes her exploration of the unique and unexpected and elevates it a step further into the more beautiful and positive aspects of the human experience. Cannot wait to hear more!

Must listen   (5/5)

Fantastic episodes, truly captivating and heart warming stories about the myriad of loves one can encounter in life

The best   (5/5)

From crime to love in its many forms...Phoebe Judge is a national treasure. Listen to this one-it’s well worth it!

Relevant   (5/5)

This is the best thing I’ve ever come across amongst all media platforms. It’s moving, relevant, poetic, it reflects the human soul. Soul food.

Refreshing take on love   (5/5)

You never know what the angle will be but the story always makes me think about the many forms of love that we are surrounded by. Great show!

Exceptional storytelling!   (5/5)

I love this show just as much as I love Criminal. Keep up the great work!

I’m in love!   (5/5)

I so enjoy listening to these uplifting, interesting stories of love in all forms. A dose of happy!

Ready for more!   (5/5)

I love these episodes!! A must listen. I find myself sharing the stories with others.

This Is Love   (5/5)

Story of sight impaired couple is beautiful and inspiring. I completely escape listening to these podcasts! Thank you!

One of my favorites!   (5/5)

I love all the different types of “love” there are on this show. I never know what to expect except that I’ll be smiling (or crying) at the end!

Wonderful and beautiful stories   (5/5)

I’ve only listened to the first two episodes so far, but both have really touched me and episode 2 is especially beautiful.

We listen and learn together   (5/5)

My husband and I put our children to bed, sit on the porch with a beer and a cocktail, share a headset and listen to an episode. It’s a joyful part of our day. Thank you for these incredible and unique stories that bring love to our days.

Another great podcast   (5/5)

Another wonderful podcast. I have loved every episode! Especially loved the baby whale story!!!

Great stories!   (5/5)

I’ve always enjoyed criminal since it started and this is a great pod cast as well! I like that is not your expected love stories.

Fantastic!   (5/5)

I love this podcast! I find myself with happy tears from how touching the interviews are and how we can find love in unexpected situations.

Great show   (5/5)

This shows always brightens my mood when I listen to it. It really makes me feel good. I want more!

Love!   (5/5)

Glad I stumbled upon this podcast! Great car ride listen! Deff want to listen to more.

Outside my comfort zone   (5/5)

This is so far outside my podcast comfort zone. I’m not sappy and usually listen to crime and history podcasts, so wasn’t sure what to expect here. And I love this! These short stories are absolutely beautiful and poignant...can’t wait for more!

What a joy!   (5/5)

I can't say enough wonderful things about this delightful podcast. I just finished episode four and have found every single episode insightful, poignant, and thought-provoking. It is my absolute favorite thing to listen to right now and am recommending it to everyone!

Wonderful podcast!   (5/5)

I love these beautiful life stories! Keep them coming!

LOVE!!   (5/5)

Wonderful show, was sad by the end that there weren’t more to listen to right away. A couple had me teared up at how endearing and special the connections were. Can wait for more!!

Surprised each and every time   (5/5)

I've listened to all six episodes posted so far, and a couple of minutes into each, I've thought to myself, Eh, this might not be my cup of tea, and considered skipping it. But each and every time, sticking with it paid off richly with stories so unique yet inclusive, I was moved to tears. And this is a lesson for all of us in these contentious times of silos and echo chambers: Listen. You don't know what you don't know. Hear people out. Learn something about someone you might think is nothing like you, or has nothing of interest to teach you. Close your mouth and open your mind. Thank you for these gently told narratives of ordinary/extraordinary people with universal messages about how love shows up in its various, surprising forms. (Only one suggestion: Phoebe, sometimes the "profound sincerity" of your voice is a bit theatrical, like an SNL spoof of Public Radio programs. Your regular voice is quite compelling and lovely; maybe consider a more conversational--less "confidential" way of talking to your listeners.)

Yep   (4/5)

So far so good. I think it’s a keeper.

Love at first sound bite   (5/5)

I don't think I've ever fallen as hard in love with a podcast as I have with this one. The Criminal team produced a top notch show right out of the gate and I can't get enough. Me and this podcast? This is love.

Feel good podcast   (5/5)

Really love listening to this podcast. Each episode left me smiling and feeling warm inside.

So lovely   (5/5)

This is Love is so lovely. The stories are uplifting and very well organized. Phoebe is phenomenal as always. I heard the trailer on Criminal and I’m all about it!

Love, love!   (5/5)

Love this podcast sad the season is over already!

Huge fan   (5/5)

This is one of my fav podcasts right now. Amazing format. Wish it was longer!!

Phoebe Judge and Love   (5/5)

I love Criminal - which is why I tried This Is Love. This is another excellent podcast. The storytelling is great. And Phoebe Judge has the best delivery in the world, no make that the universe. Honestly, I could listen to Phoebe read the phone book and she would make it fascinating.

love it!   (5/5)

love this show! Phoebe’s voice is so relaxing and the show is so uplifting.

I love This Is Love   (5/5)

Every episode has been enlightening and surprising and sometimes tear-provoking. Good job, Phoebe and Co.

Love it   (5/5)

Great new show. Phoebe is such a great storyteller. In a similar style to “Criminal” and just as good.

Not totally sold so far   (3/5)

I do enjoy this podcast but I’m not a 100% conversed I will continue listening. It’s worth giving a try!

Beautiful   (5/5)

I'll follow you anywhere Phoebe Judge!!! Fantastic stories told by a master craftsperson. Can't wait for more...

Love   (5/5)

This podcast is a great to listen to while there is so much negativity in the world lately. Love is refreshing and so positive!

Love is beautiful   (5/5)

These stories warm my heart and help me truly appreciate how beautiful love is, in all its forms.

Can’t get enough Love!   (5/5)

Look forward to this every week

Love it!   (5/5)

What a wonderful podcast! Really, a wonderful idea!

Moving podcast   (5/5)

I was a fan of Criminal, so I thought I’d heck this out and was so glad I did. Sweet, moving stories, told by Phoebe’s calm and soothing voice. Recommended! Wish the season was longer than 6 episodes!

Excellent storytelling   (5/5)

I started listening to this podcast after being an avid listener of the hosts other podcast, Criminal. I’m so glad I tried this out, love it!!!

LOVE!   (5/5)

This podcast is so beautifully presented and each episode is a wonderful story of true love and what it takes to make love last!

Excellent   (5/5)

Really great show! Touching stories. There’s only been 6 episodes so far and I’ve already teared up at 2 of them. Phoebe’s the best!

Breathtakingly Good   (5/5)

I love Phoebe’s other podcast, Criminal, so it’s no surprise that I love This is Love as well. The episode ‘Something Large and Wild’ is breathtakingly good. I listened to it with my 7 year old and when it was over he said it was so good he could cry. To move a child to emotional tears takes an incredible amount of storytelling prowess and This is Love has it in spades.

Great!   (5/5)

Enjoyed the first season, excited 4 what's next. 💕

Feel good podcast   (5/5)

Loved this podcast.! Can’t wait for another season. :)

Tear Jerker   (5/5)

Another great podcast from the makers of Criminal, another one of my favorites. Very well done, a tear jerker almost every time, so just be careful!

Love “Criminal”? You’ll love “This is Love”   (4/5)

“This is Love” has a similar style and feel to the “Criminal” podcast. It’s carefully edited and the stories sensitively told. Phoebe Judge, Lauren Spohrer and Nadia Wilson don’t just want to entertain you, but there is usually a larger point to the stories they tell. I like that the stories aren’t just about the love humans have for other humans. Also, it doesn’t hurt that the show is based in North Carolina.

Unexpected and Delightful Twists   (5/5)

I was a big fan of Phoebe's other podcast, Criminal, that takes a look at crime from very unexpected angles. I am happy to say that she continues this suprirising way of looking at a story in This Is Love. You don't really know what you to expect when you start an episode, then WHAM it has its hooks in you and you can't stop listening. Thanks!

Intriguing!!!   (5/5)

I’ve been listening non-stop to the sister show “Criminal” for a few weeks and once I caught up, I started listing to “This Is Love.” I’m pretty much obsessed with the stories found and told by Phoebe Judge and I’ve been sharing it with my friends. Everyone should listen! The realness of our world is unfathomable and everyone should listen to this podcast to experience it!

My Favorite Podcast   (5/5)

Light-hearted, but at the same time well thought out and full of emotion. I love LOVE and this podcast explores it in ALL its forms. Excited about the future of this podcast. So far I’ve loved each and every episode.

Great podcast!   (5/5)

Love this podcast ;)

Another Awesome Radiotopia show   (5/5)

I love the other podcast done with Phoebe Judge, "Criminal". She is intelligent, sensitive, and asks the right questions. Her voice is soothing. They chose amazing stories. This podcast is a great antidote to Criminal, which is sometimes fairly light, but often heavy. I now love them both. A few of these stories in the first season just really hit me in the heart but in a good way. I think it may be what we need b/c the other realities of current life are pretty degrading at times.

I could listen to these stores all day   (5/5)

The very best of a oral novellas.

Much needed!!   (5/5)

I look forward to This is Love because I listen to it while at work. I am able to get through a hectic day listening to stories of people sharing their experiences. Amazing and inspiring! Thank you and I look forward to more. -Lisa

A Delight!   (5/5)

This podcast is delightful. I could listen to Phoebe Judge all day long, and the stories are so sweet and unexpected.

Not your typical love story   (5/5)

I really look forward to new episodes of Criminal and so when Phoebe Judge came out with this new podcast, I had to try it. I’m not a fan of sappy love stories. And this is not that, at all. Of course it isn’t. Listen to one episode and you’ll be hooked.

So good!   (5/5)

I love all the stories! Such a great podcast. Can’t wait for the second season.

great podcast   (5/5)

I like this podcast a lot more than I thought I would. i look forward to each new episode.
