Tell Them, I Am named one of the best podcasts of 2019 so far by TIME Magazine

Host Misha Euceph points out in the first episode of this miniseries that Muslim people in the news and on television are most often asked about Islamophobia or headscarves or terrorism. So she endeavors to ask 22 different prominent Muslim interviewees something else about their lives. Guests, from Queer Eye’s Tan France to Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat, share personal stories about defining moments in their lives that may or may not be related to their religion or ethnicity but are crucial to their identity as human beings. It’s a deeply moving project that results in better stories from famous and interesting subjects than you might read in a profile or see on a late-night talk show. - TIME

Tell Them, I Am - “... introspective and intimate interview series.”

Host Misha Euceph presents this introspective and intimate interview series, which features conversations with Muslim artists, actors, performers, and athletes like Queer Eye's Tan France and Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat. Most episodes clock in at a digestible 15 to 20 minutes long, which makes this the perfect break from those meandering long-form interview shows. —Gabrielle Bruney

The Big One named one of the best podcasts of 2019 by Vulture

The Big One has a slightly oddball premise that’s fascinating enough to be worth the price of admission. Produced by Southern California Public Radio (KPCC), this limited-run podcast endeavors to give listeners a sense of what to expect when the San Andreas fault line that lies beneath the city inevitably rips, and what they should be prepared to do. Half service journalism and half speculative fiction, it’s an innovative piece of science journalism that pulls off the execution. It’s also a pretty fun listen … or at least, as fun as an end-times survival guide can be. - Nicholas Quah, Vulture

“The Big One” Podcast: Anticipating a Devastating L.A. Earthquake

“The Big One,” a podcast that débuted yesterday from the Southern California NPR station KPCC, is riveting for similar reasons. It reminds us of a fact that we enjoy not thinking about: that the San Andreas Fault, which runs nearly the length of California, is due for a giant shakeup. A devastating earthquake could come any minute—or not for another several decades. Whenever it is, Los Angeles could be hit hard. “The Big One” aims to prepare the listener by explaining the likely destruction that such an earthquake would cause, its ripple effects, and its science. It’s the stuff of nightmares. But—even though it inspires a strong urge to avoid living in California—it’s also strangely reassuring. - Sarah Larson, The New Yorker

The Guardian recommends Repeat

From the opening, Gilbertson’s dogged approach had me hooked, and it was clear she would go to whatever lengths possible to try and answer that central question. Throughout the series, Gilbertson’s storytelling is supported by illuminating interviews and Andrew Eapen’s hauntingly beautiful score. Equal parts enlightening and exasperating, Repeat is a necessary dive into the lengths to which police departments will go to protect their own. - Juniper Simonis
