Enlightening, but needs reformatting
I thought this podcast was very informative giving inside information on the amazing Netflix original Stranger Things, but I do not think the format was the best fit for this type of podcast. The narrator gave excellent insight into how the show was made and it’s delivery. He also had good analysis of the audio clips from the cast and crew. The format was way too similar to the Missing Richard Simmons podcast however, which was not as impactful for a behind the scenes podcast like this. Having the flow constantly changed by inserting sound clips from interviews sporadically and then analyzing them did not work as well for me. Instead it would have been much better if the whole interview with cast members was provided first, and then the narrator including the analysis. This could have been formatted this way to decrease the length of time of episodes and ensure each podcast had a specific theme. With so many people interested in Stranger Things and wanting more, the length of episodes should not be a concern and if anything they should be increased. To keep each episode centered around a particular theme while changing the format, interviews could be divided into specific sections and then played in each episode instead of just including short clips here and there. Overall great though and I look forward to the next season!
