The AV Club:
“Tell Your Friends favors a genteel, literary tone that evokes the soothing storytelling of Ira Glass and This American Lifemore than the comedy-podcast template of comedians gabbing with other comedians about comedy stuff… McEneaney’s curiosity and affection for people and their fascinating imperfections comes through in both his stories and interviews.Tell Your Friends has a cozy, nicely lived-in feel.”
“More of a magazine-style show than a straight comic-on-comic interview… Tell Your Friends! has a more polished feel than the average podcast, tightly edited with jingles and commercials that you won’t need to skip through.”
“…I so immensely enjoy the Tell Your Friends podcast. It’s like a funnier, more alternative version of NPR. Host and producer Liam McEneaney calls each episode an “issue,” like an issue of a magazine, which is the best way to describe it. Each episode includes a variety of formats, including interviews, storytelling, written comedic monologues, and other free-flowing thoughts. Liam McEneany is a longtime staple of the New York comedy scene and therefore has a lot of connections, but seems to value having interesting and engaging guests with a particular story to tell rather than personal friends.”
