I’ve listened to most episodes more than once and recommended it to most people I know. This podcast is a masterwork; profound, unique, thought-provoking, intense, and not without a sense of humor when appropriate. It’s truly wonderful and I wish it was mandatory listening for all!

New listener here and I can see why Ear Hustle has such great reviews. Having been in prison and turned my life around it’s great hearing others do the same.

Longtime fan, love this podcast. Would love, love to hear more about Earlonne’s life post prison. Less about sexuality in prison. That’s my personal preference.

Witty. An excellent podcast humanising the mostly hidden and forgotten. It also highlights the USAs inhumane use of long periods of solitary confinement and extraordinary penal sentences

Just listened to “Karen” - what an amazing and profound episode!
Kat S 81 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/22
Such an incredibly moving podcast. Voices of those in detention are so rarely heard. This podcast is so important. We really need to start valuing other humans and stop imprisoning them. This podcast humanises inmates in a way most forms of media does not. I am so greatful this exists. I hope...Read full review »

Omg.. I have listened to every episode, and nothing has touched me like this one! My heart goes out to this woman! and Nigel, you are the kindest interviewer, she felt so comfortable to tell you her story. Thank you for your show. I wear your T-shirt all the time!! I am the mother of a formerly...Read full review »

Just listened to the Karen episode and this episode was very vulnerable and heartbreaking. ❤️

I’ve just been listening in the past few years and it really has changed my view of prisoners. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Also they don’t shy away from hard topics but it isn’t always about crime either. It’s a nice balance. I find the dynamic between Nigel and Earlonne that of mother and...Read full review »

Rating this is tricky, because I love this podcast. Five stars for the podcast overall. But I came here because of a particular episode in November that includes a piece on “laws of power.” Illuminating people’s humanity is a good thing. Shining light in seldom-seen corners seems a good thing. ...Read full review »

Man, you guys were on fire in the beginning of your episodes, but I don’t know what’s happening every episode I get excited to listen and I am disappointed there Snoozefest. I literally fall asleep there so boring no action, no juice. come on let’s do better.

I’ve listened to podcasts for years and years and this one has risen to the ranks of This American Life which was how I got to this podcast in the first place (thanks to Ira for the rec). Incredible stories. Love it so much. Thank you.

I love listening to Ear Hustle. Listening to Nigel banter with Erlonne and New York is always so much fun. It’s such a great experience to listen to unlikely friends tell stories of people you *think* you wouldn’t relate to. This podcast is so lovely and so human and so raw.
Yayaluvslu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/22
Hearing the stories of those that have changed their lives and found meaning and purpose while being in prison is refreshing. The hosts are engaging and keep you wanting for the next episode.
jilljillg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/22
I love this show. Have listened to all seasons. The theme music always gives me gooseberry. Even after all this time
aussie qld fan via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/17/22
Been listening since ep 1 and still absolutely love this podcast. It’s a must listen.

Which one of you podcast listeners is a recording executive and is going to sign Jovan Mills. That kid needs a deal.

This show is so inspiring and such a great insight into a different life, extremely grateful to be able to listen 🫶
ClaudieF via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/12/22
Heard about this podcast for the first time, about three months ago from MFM podcast when Georgia recommended it. I binged so quick. I have learned so much and I love the rapport of the hosts.
Minnie-Rose via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/22
If you want to see different reporting of the prison system, listen to ear hustle. Warning - it can lift you up but also break your heart. It happened to launch right as someone important in my life was returning home from prison and I have listened ever since.
FaJoseph via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/31/22
One word to sum up this podcast: Humanizing. The storytelling and perspectives shared by this show are truly incredible and thought-provoking. I have such respect for the hosts and the way they’ve been able to connect those “inside” the system to those who are not - it’s a great reminder that we...Read full review »

Always insightful, always solid and humanizing reporting. Love this podcast and the hosts.

It’s all about the hosts now; all about me me me: used to be interesting until the narcissism set in!

Thank you so much for your time, your voices, and all the stories that you share! Truly my favorite podcast!
AshListener444 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/22
Every episode, tears! Thank you so so much. For uplifting these voices, sharing these experiences. You are generating a lot of positive energy in your listeners that is being beamed out to all the incarcerated folks on this planet, super important! Lots of love from Toronto, thanks again :-)

Such an awesome podcast. It’s interesting to get a better understanding of life inside prison. There are funny stories, gross stories, interesting stories and heart wrenching stories! One of my fav things about this podcast is that it helps you remember that we are all human. We all learn and...Read full review »

Love it.

I came to Earhustle in season 3 (I think!), and have listened to every episode. I’m in the UK and knew nothing about the prison system in the US. I’ve learnt so much, and it’s heartbreaking and fascinating in equal measure. I’ve recommended Earhustle to friends and family, and they’ve loved...Read full review »

Indigo's Star via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/22
I am addicted to this podcast! I love the authenticity, the honest revelations, and the off the wall humour. I absolutely am invested in the stories of some of the main participants, and enjoy hearing about their journeys towards rehabilitation a renewed life on the outside. I congratulate the...Read full review »

If you’re interested in other people’s stories and experiences you’ll love this podcast.

Truly an incredible podcast. It makes me laugh and cry, and understand new perspectives. Everyone associated with the show is great. I would recommend everyone listen to this show.
genderbenderextraordinaire via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/22
I had never really thought much about prisoners and always just kind of relegated them to being “bad guys.”The stories from inside San Quentin humanize these prisoners. It’s not about whether or not they deserve to be there it’s about the fact that they are complicated human beings with lives and...Read full review »

Missed you guys this summer. Glad to have you back. This is truly one of my favorite podcasts. You don’t shy away from the toughness of prison life but do so in such a respectful way. The inmates you interview reminds me that we are all part of humanity and deserve basic rights and respect no...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Ear Hustle since season 1 it’s the best podcast out there! They tell some difficult stories with empathy and compassion. I learn something new each episode and they open my eyes to a different perspective. Truly the best show.

Kudos to Earlonne, Nigel, and "New York" at the start of another sure-to-be outstanding season -- looking forward to listening for the wisdom, humor, and humanity they bring out in their interviews. Also -- the music and production values are amazing!Read full review »

Congratulations on Season TEN! I’ve been listening since the beginning and look forward to more much needed stories that Nigel and Earlonne and the rest of the team continue to share. Thank you!
BlkElleWoods via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/22
This is a very powerful podcast/project that empowers people legally relegated to constant and consistent challenge to their humanity to voice themselves. Apart from this being excellent listening, I wholeheartedly support any project that attempts to address the causes, rather than symptoms, of...Read full review »

Been listening to ear hustle since season 3 and don’t know why it’s taken me this long to write a review. Funny, heartbreaking, educational, compelling. makes you think about things in new way and brings humanity to an inhumane system. One of my favorite podcasts. Highly recommended.
G8tr? via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/22
I learned about its existence from a mention on “Have Such a Great Day”… another great podcast.
RonnyB2 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/08/22
Ear Hustle is nothing short of amazing. The stories within broaden your compassion, your understanding, your knowledge of not only the incarcerated experience but truly the human experience and what connects us all. It will make you laugh and cry and light a fire in your soul for humankind and...Read full review »

Thank you for the straight forward, thought provoking, heart lifting podcast. The “ About” describes what you need to know and the listen, what might do you well to know. Thank you.
