  • Fantastically curated OTR entertainment

    This is my favorite OTR podcast and podcaster. His commentary at the beginning of the show does a great job setting the historical and narrative context for the forthcoming show(s). Love the inclusion of original advertisements and the fact that the host is so low-key about the podcast’s own fundraising needs - it’s the least intrusive of almost any podcast I follow. I love the themed episodes from different shows. Keep up the great work!

  • Should be 5 stars but…

    I listen to OTR every night as I go to bed. It helps set my mind at ease. Down These Mean Streets and it’s companion Stars on Susoense are OUTSTANDING! I would give them 5 stars each but for consistency—not in production or content but in regularity. Too often new episodes are not produced on a weekly basis. But when they are produced, they are sublime. Especially love the vintage ads.

  • Delightful

    Better than the rest, with the exception of the equally delightful Stars on Suspense, their other OTR podcast.
