Listened to a few episodes and found them to be long and absolutely pointless. A total waste of time.

If you want sob stories from those who live in the far reaches of Twitter, have no place in our society, and are offended by their own shadow, this is perfect for you.

Someone (Ira Glass) suggested just listening to any episode without reading the description. He’s right. It’s calmly, comfortingly, riveting; descriptors can’t do justice to the experience so just listen to an episode and decide. Thanks to everyone who’s had a hand in creating this.

LuLu is such a great interviewer. She is kind, interested, and asks great questions.

This is really good. I feel that LGN (and others) treat their featured guests with curiosity and respect. The one about the homeschool advocate/lawyer was fascinating. Loved the profile of the cruiser too.

Such a great way to increase understanding of personal struggles in modern times especially if the views are not necessarily ones you share. Keep it coming!

It’s really good to pause and hear a person’s story in their own word’s. Garcia-Navarro does a lovely job leading the conversation and leaving lots of room for the guests to reveal themselves.

Extraordinarily dull podcast hosted by person who spends most of her time declaring herself a victim on Twitter.

Interesting stories and conversations

Lulu Garcia-Navarro, one of my long time favorite NPR reporters, has found her niche. She reminds us of the importance of becoming proximal and developing discourse in an era of polarizing media lenses. First Person shares important crossroads viewpoints that explore the human elements and gray...Read full review »

Lulu asks the questions we are all having in these strange times and in such an eloquent and respectful manner. More than ever, we are living in a space of division among our fellow humans. What we need is conversation and stepping into the shoes of somebody else, even better if they are...Read full review »

I have only had a chance to listen to one episode so far (the June 9, 2022 episode), but I am left wondering how the interviewee’s first child/adult son has emotionally coped with his mother’s revelations here, and in the wider media. That is his own personal experience of course, but I hope he...Read full review »

Every interview has been amazing with narratives from real people. You feel as if you know them while discovering viewpoints and perspectives that aren’t fit for soundbites. If you are a demagogue or prefer the echo chamber—you won’t like it.
Shayla_NYC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/22
You have no idea how much that I have missed you. Your voice is so very comforting at this terrible time. What else can happen??? Sunday is not the same without out and you are truly irreplaceable. I have listened to all of the episodes, and each one is better than the last. Thanks for...Read full review »

An interesting take on issues that require perspective, which is something that is lost today. Our society can benefit from listening to people’s stories, and learning from them. Really enjoyable so far.

It isn’t worth the time it took to produce. Let alone listen
B3asy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/22
Enjoying the stories so far.
chesbay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/22
Garcia-Navarro is one of the very best interviewers, asking challenging questions without baring the fangs of her own opinions. I admired her work for years on NPR; she’s now a treasure of NYT journalism.
BonusDad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/22
Lulu is has excellent interview skills. She is able to bring out perspectives from her guests that I find informative and insightful. A plus is hearing her familiar voice again! My new favorite podcast!
Cincinnati Nancy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/22
This is a wonderful show that is incredibly enlightening. It gives such a valuable point of view to hot button issues and is incredibly relatable. The biggest injustice is that this is only once a week! More would be amazing but I’ll continue to look forward to ever Thursday!
hbsydy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/22
This podcast sounded like such a great concept, to hear how someone’s life experience led to the formation of their opinion. Now I only listened to one episode, the one with Sharone Mitchell Jr. on gun control, so that’s all I’m reacting to. So instead of actually exploring his ideas and his...Read full review »

I’ve also never reviewed a podcast, and am an avid listener of all kinds of podcasts. These first stories have spun my head around, and altered my beliefs. I am grateful for the opportunity to increase my understanding of these all important issues. Thank you to all for bringing these stories for...Read full review »
Erbrumer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/22
I feel like the moral of every story is “it’s complicated” and “yes, I don’t have a view that fits neatly in a box.” But after you learn about the person’s point of view and why they hold it, the rest of the episode just kind of drags on with pointless questions that don’t really give you more...Read full review »
Boocm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/22
This is a great new podcast which exposes listeners to opinions they may not be comfortable with. Understanding each other, and living with each other, needs to come from listening and this series helps with that. A previous review mentioned how it platforms people with “Extremist Views”...Read full review »
Eric J. Millan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/21/22
I’ve never written a review for a podcast before but felt compelled to review First Person. It should be required listening for anyone who wants to truly understand why we believe what we do, through the lens of the lived experiences of others. Listen and learn, live an examined life, and respect...Read full review »

These kinds of conversations are badly needed, Lulu is an excellent interviewer. Looking forward to more!
njrp65 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/22
The program gave a platform to this ultra extremist religious "parental rights" person then totally failed to challenge him on his blatant hypocrisy and intellectual incoherence regarding the issues he chooses to represent. That epsiode is really irresponsibly executed. You have to do...Read full review »
J. Oatmon via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/19/22
In a 41 minute conversation with someone that clearly stands on one side of two very controversial topics (Will Estrada on homeschooling and parental rights), Lulu Garcia-Novarro asks her first (of 2) challenging questions more than 30 minutes into the interview. I would have given it one star...Read full review »

Extraordinario podcast. Historias personales que nos acercan a de una forma totalmente diferente a algunas de las ideas que en abstracto más polarización generan. Nuestra capacidad de empatía revive al escucharlas.
APL* via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 06/17/22
I listened to the host of this podcast, Lulu Garcia-Navarro, on the Longform podcast this morning, and then immediately came here to listen. I am so glad I did! I’m excited for what’s to come. I love how this first episode shows the complexities of how a real human has to navigate nuances that...Read full review »

I downloaded this podcast because I enjoyed the host on her previous network. But, wow. this is powerful perspective on a topic our culture is not often honest about. It’s raw and real.
Sofunsofine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/22
Life is fleeting isn’t it... Good old freedom of press to soothe and sort and ease the time along.
Sweot J. via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/14/22
So much nuance in this story and such a unique angle on the topic. It was riveting, terrifying, empowering.
MCmediator via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/22
I wish Lulu had asked for clarification on a couple of things: 1. The Christian culture of teaching abstinence to adolescents with raging hormones needs to change. Her story - and many others like hers - would be very different if she had been on birth control or her partner had used a condom....Read full review »

Wow the first episode was so good. This person is a fantastic interviewer, smart and incisive yet gentle and respectful. Of course it helped that in the first episode they had a great subject too. I look forward to more, eagerly.
PF Duke via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/22
This podcast gently told the story and truth of a young girl, who becomes a woman that can articulate the experience so many can relate to.
Sheilagh J. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/22
The complexity of the topic is not shown in political sound bites, a protester's signage or a religious ideology. It can only be told in the first person. The Mary Oliver poem says it all for so many be it any complex decision. I saw it as a survivor of emotional domestic abuse. No one...Read full review »

This is all conjecture. George quit saying you are sure. They are attacking the actions of family members actions or reactions. It is also very easy to make things fit after the fact! I believe they are actively working to keep people from commenting I know they blocked anyone connected to...Read full review »
