I love listening to this podcast. Everything is so great! The sound quality, the excerpts, the stories, the mythology, etc. etc. It feels like a reunion and a party, and a celebration. Keep up the great work, y’all.

It’s hard to overstate the quality of this work. Whether you are a musician who loves the Grateful Dead’s music, or a fan, or someone who is interested in the cultural history of that time, there is nothing else out there I’ve found that presents this information in such an entertaining, relevant...Read full review »

What can I say? I got on the bus when I was 13 from my bro’s records and saw my fist show in Binghamton in ‘77. Cried hard the day Jerry died, and really appreciate being back in the unique vibe that is the Grateful Dead. Thanks, guys.

A lot of recollections from the guests of the Europe ‘72 season meld fact with fantasy, but that is part of the whole Dead experience. You could never be quite sure what actually happened at a Dead show, or what you imagined. Like a good work of literary fiction there was more truth in them than...Read full review »

This #8 of your Europe ’72 season is my favorite of the whole Good Ol’ Grateful Deadcast so far - such a rich variety of commentators, witness, cultures, occurences, human experience and heart - Good job! (and thanks to all contributors)

Having this Graham dude dissecting songs is a major turn off.
kdecody via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/29/22
This is the perfect podcast for the dedicated Grateful Dead fan. Interviews and stories from people who lived in the Grateful Dead world all those years ago.

This is a must hear pod for any fan. The care and research put in to this project is unmatched. Cheers to Jesse and the team for this amazing documentation of this amazing American institution. There is nothing like this Grateful Dead podcast!

Love the deep dives into the greatest band!

It’s fantastic to hear all these stories about how the Grateful Dead became the Grateful Dead. Love listening. 🙏⚡️🦉

The conversation is good, the music, the vibe, everything is okay.

Basically you all are putting the perforated sheets back together square by square, completing the picture, the GD movie in my mind…super-8 timeline, rewind…fantastic fun microscopic music archaeologists you are.

I hope every Deadhead listens with the same passion they listen to a 5/8/77 or a 3/29/90 or a 4/8/72 or whatever floats their fancy. Rich and Jesse and everyone else involved do an excellent job of bringing the Grateful Dead’s history alive. The interviews, the music theory, the trivia is all so...Read full review »

I love this podcast for the great I-was-there-when-it-all-went-down story telling, and also the great historical and geographical contexts! But, please no more Grateful Dead “scholarship!” God bless the scholars being who they are, but it sure does take the fun out of an otherwise good time!
Josh the Carpenter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/22
I love this show more than words can tell. Despite having a four-plus decade relationship w the music, l learn so much and, at times, I laugh out loud! The stories told by guys like Parish and Cutler, and the sweet memories from Donna Jean and some of the lesser known characters…it is simply...Read full review »

Always happy when a new Deadcast come on. Very entertaining. I listened to the Dead since around 1970, but didn’t see them live until 1973, so I missed seeing Oigpen. Always loved his contributions, though.
Paul of Portland via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/05/22
This is my favorite podcast!! Such amazing content, brings so much joy to my days. Thank you!
streetkats via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/29/22
Everything about this is great, from research and writing, the host Jesse Jarnow voice is amazing. Only thing missing is actual interviews and stories from members Bob, Phil, Billy & Mickey. Would be nice to get them seeing as their financially benefiting from the sales on releases of music...Read full review »
JasonMineer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/22
This vibrant podcast is a fabulous time machine that sprinkles joy and whimsy in equal parts episode after episode. Thursdays have never been so much fun! I’d give it a ten if Phil and Billy could be corralled to record new insights. A big tip of the hat to Donna Jean and Sam Cutler for their...Read full review »

This is truly one of the best podcasts out there. If you love the Dead and love a well done podcast then this is your jam.
theRealShants via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/22
grateful dead spirit into a podcast
nick_00_ via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/17/22
Outstanding!! This story needs to be a book written by Jesse...
John from Yorkshire via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/15/22
I am really enjoying the podcasts. Truly appreciate all the work you all put into this. My only criticism. Please stop with Graham Boone. His assumptions about what musicians are thinking/feeling/ planning etc are cringeworthy. But the singing is down right painful. Why do you think we’d rather...Read full review »

Great podcast. Can’t tell me you’re out of material already though. Where’s the next show?

timothy.g.anderson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/22
I have not been disappointed in any of these! The information is deep and amazing and the track breakdowns just phenomenal! I always walk away from this with a desire to hear more. Both of the Dead and the podcast.
BSmith7972 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/22
I’m a relatively new, burgeoning Dead fan. I grew up appreciating them as my Uncle was a traveling Deadhead for a bit and always wondered what was in those neon colored cassettes on his book shelf. The Dead can be a tough band to crack from the outside-do you start with Live Dead or studio...Read full review »
rex arrow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/22
This show is truly amazing. I’ve listened to each & every episode at least once. I was looking for a deep dive into more than the culture and social lives of the Dead. Chord changes, time signatures, all the music geek fodder with juicy bits from folks who were there. Are you committed? Are...Read full review »

A must-listen for any serious dead fan. Great podcast.
treyforda via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/22
A masterful and extremely insightful account of what makes the Grateful Dead the Grateful Dead, told in a way so as to be fascinating and revealing for Deadheads as well as revealing and grabbing for those who are new to the band.
mmcdono908 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/21
I love the format. It is very informative and gives you the “fly on the wall” perspective. Having a script and direction is better than a live discussion in my opinion. Their non-overbearing voices have a warm, friendly feeling. Every piece of each offering is perfectly placed with an amazing...Read full review »
Dorm71dude via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/25/21
As a new deadhead this podcast is a great deep dive into the history and spirit of the Grateful Dead. I have read many books on the Dead already but it is great to hear the voices of the people who were there. It is really informative, entertaining and the love and joy the producers have for...Read full review »

I love all the little details from the people who made it happen . Great research.

This podcast is meticulously researched and wonderfully listenable. Bravo!

Best overall fan related info that balances fans and band info with proper respect. dignity and above all - spiritual reverence needed imho o be a fan podcast .. I’m (almost) not worthy lol but Jerry sez I am n Dead Sea Scrolls is my podcast copyright name ok? ok! tbd ❤️🙏
BluesPeach via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/12/21
Love it, but how about an episode (or more) devoted to Lesh?
wordmill66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/21
Hands down the best Grateful Dead podcast out there. Loved the long overdue show featuring Donna Jean. Thanks and looking forward to more shows!
pa mets fan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/21
Every band or artist would love to have podcasts this well-produced, in-depth and entertaining about their music. Fortunately for us DHs we have Rich & Jesse knockin’ it outta the park EVERY TIME. Beyond description, beyond outstanding.
Gemoman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/21
Forty years into my journey with the Dead, I just can’t get enough of the Deadcast. It is super well produced, deeply informative, and gives a wonderful look into the people, the events, the history, and the happenstance that led to the music and the band. No matter how much you think you know,...Read full review »

Not simply entertaining or informative (which it is!!) this podcast frequently moves me emotionally and makes me swell with pride to be a part of this community. It’s a rare and different tune in the podcast world. I’m Grateful.
Vanilla Grits via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/21
I listened to all three Listen to the River episodes. The history, interviews and stories are amazingly well done. Now when I listen to the box set my enjoyment will be even greater.
Roy of wall street via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/21
So fun to listen to all the stories. Brings history to life every episode. Thank you so much.
9iu7y via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/11/21
I catch all the recommended shows and stop the pod then listen to said show. It’s pretty cool!
Milwookie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/21
Also, please give Graeme Boone a weekly podcast to walk through a song performance each week. His guided tour of Birdsong in the St Louis 72 episode was wonderful!
BradandLori via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/21
The first few minutes are always a bit commercialized but easily skipped to get the the incredibly well researched and produced content from Jesse Jarnow.
OFA74 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/21
Amazing show Love it so much, listen to it on the daily! Thank you
