Maybe you’ve laid awake imagining how it could have been, how it might yet be, but the moment to act was never right. Well, the moment is here and the podcast making it happen is Heavyweight. Join Jonathan Goldstein for road trips, thorny reunions, and difficult conversations as he backpedals his way into the past like a therapist with a time machine. From Gimlet Media.

"Heavyweight is the most easily recommendable podcast I’ve encountered. Funny, truthful, sensitive, daring; there’s something for everyone."

"(Updated) Heavyweight is, then, a podcast about turning points, finding answers to enduring questions and reckoning with the past. It is hosted by Jonathan Goldstein, who facilitates these reckonings, acts as intermediary and asks the questions that those at the centre of the story can’t bring themselves to ask. Throughout all this, Goldstein manages to find laughter amid the melancholy, invariably at his own expense, all the while displaying remarkable empathy towards his subjects and finding profundity in their predicaments."

"If Heavyweight, the new US podcast hosted by Jonathan Goldstein, tells us anything, it’s that grudges shouldn’t be left to fester...Heavyweight depends on Goldstein’s personal connection to his subjects and his directness as an interviewer. He is, it seems, impervious to discomfort — Louis Theroux without the gaucheness...terrifically moving."
