"They pull surprisingly fascinating stories out of completely random strangers. Hersch and Michaan are hilariously high energy, getting excited over things most people don’t, like being an administrative assistant at an accounting firm. They delight their interviewees with their genuine elation at hearing more about their lives. "

"Podcast But Outside contains the elements of the archetypal podcast: interesting people conversing. The medium is one of the purest vehicles for personality, and these hosts are in no short supply. Their charisma and strong comedic chemistry means they could probably just shoot the bull in a dorm room and make it a listenable podcast (and maybe it would be called Podcast). That said, for a show with such a tight thesis, the podcast doesn’t always know exactly what it wants to be. But that’s how chaos works. The solution might be editing—but that might also come at the cost of a substantial part of the show’s identity. Short of that, you take it all as it comes. Just know that if you’re willing to endure some low points, you will be rewarded with some awfully compelling entertainment—but outside."
