A Listeners Review of Nancy

Hey dear readers,

 

I hope you’re having an awesome day! I wanted to touch base to review a podcast that I’ve been listening to for the past couple of years. I started to review a single episode but figured that I would be reviewing multiple shows so thought that I should start with a general, overall review first to introduce you to the podcast itself.

 

Nancy, a production of WNYC Studios, New York’s NPR station, is a podcast that I’ve truly fallen in love with! You can subscribe to it wherever you listen to your other podcasts but of course, the links I use in this post lead you directly to their iTunes listing.

 

General Podcast Synopsis

BFF Kathy Tu and Tobin Low are super queer, super fun and ready to take over your podcast feed. Join them for provocative stories and frank conversations about the LGBTQ experience today. Because everyone’s a little bit gay.

 

Overall Review

The Hosts

Kathy Tu and Tobin Low, as the synopsis says, are real life friends. It shines through in how they interact with one another and their guests.

 

Throughout the series, we’re introduced to their families. I think this adds to the show because it really informs you as to who these people really are and gives you a peek into why they host the show in their particular manner.

 

Their interview skills are excellent! They tend to draw information from those they talk to in a warm, friendly and funny way. Trust me on this one…I was actually interviewed by them in one of the season’s!

 

Maybe I’ll review that episode soon…LOL

 

The Stories

As I write this, I’m getting excited all over again because the stories are relevant yet heartwarming…

 

Okay, okay…I do realize I’m sounding like a Lifetime Movies promo but it’s true!!

 

The episodes range from forming a Gaggle (you have to listen or wait to read my review if you want to know what that means) to living with HIV and everything in between.

 

You’ll learn LGBTQ history, how folks navigate their jobs and just live their queer experiences on the daily.

 

And guess what…you don’t need to be queer to love this show!!! Pretty good deal, right!

 

My Rating

B+

I only gave this rating because I’m still seeing the growth and the new things their trying with the podcast.

 

Tell me what you think. Have you listened to the show before? Will you take a chance to hear what I’ve fallen in love with? Whether you’re a listener or will be one soon or not…share your thoughts in the comments. Let’s chat!
