I like to sit on the semi dark and listen to this show. It stimulates my mind and is often delightful. It’s a kind of historic storytelling that always hangs together in an interesting web.

I’ve come to adore this lovely podcast. It’s short and sweet, but always keeps my attention. I found it a few months ago and have been obsessing over these stories. I’m sad that I’ve caught up! Now I have to wait for more.

I enjoy this podcast so much! The way Nate tells these stories makes you appreciate every person, structure, and event for what/who they were. I learn something new every time!

Nate tells wonderful small, quiet stories, and he does it beautifully. One of the few podcasts I will never speed up, and will listen straight through. I always am happy to see a new episode in my feed.

Masterful , rich, storytelling, reminding us to appreciate how we effect one another and the world and the colorful history behind what we may deem ordinary. Thank you for bringing so many to light and adding wonder.

For my money this is the best podcast that has been or will ever be.
Drunkle Titus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/24
Nate is one of the best storytellers out there. Episodes are meticulously researched and well thought out. Some are funny, some are sad, some are empowering. All of them make you feel like you are a part of the story.

Maybe my favorite podcast. Ever. Hauntingly beautiful stories. I will listen to almost all podcasts on 2x but with the memory palace I slow it down so I can savor every minute.

I recommend this to everyone. Joyous. Heartbreaking. Whimsical. Interesting. Thought-provoking.

The Memory Palace is one of my my all-time favorite podcasts, each episode is a work of art
ElizaethBlair via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/23
when i need to feel moved by the world i come to listen to the memory palace. he gets me crying almost every time in the last few lines. often it comes by surprise, but it shouldn’t, because it’s like clockwork. two episodes in one day is the sweet spot 🙏

I ran the gamut of murder mystery podcasts, and soon tired of the same formula. This podcast cover so many interesting topics! I find the podcasters voice and cadence very soothing. Love your work!

Every episode is a masterpiece and this show as a whole as a national treasure.
dhs_lax via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/23
I’ve noted that this has been a sponsor for MANY podcasts. I don’t know that commercialized emotional help is a good thing and the ads for them are so minimalizing. Are you leaving X because they don’t favor a certain mindset? Maybe of censorship? You do a good job otherwise. Sometimes the music...Read full review »

Love this podcast. Have loved all the episodes. Just listened to “Wake,” and as a baseball fan i loved it. Like i do all of them. Coincidentally, i am moving, and going through some things i found a photo album. In the back of the photo album were ticket stubs. I went to Fenway and a Red Sox...Read full review »
Matthew Gronholm (Moose) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/23
In a series of great and moving and informative episodes, “Wake” is my favorite. The great Tim Wakefield holds a special place in Red Sox Nation’s heart. I don’t have words to say how much Tim meant to Sox fans like me but thankfully, we have Nate DiMeo’s The Memory Palace. Thanks, Wake and...Read full review »

One of my very favorite podcasts. And his voice! I miss your stories.
Szusxi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/23
The background music is so loud in some episodes that I can’t hear the words clearly. And the peaks are somewhat alarming when you’re trying to hear the actual words. I don’t have any hearing problems, just to add. The stories are interesting and if not for the music issue, I’d listen to the...Read full review »

I sent different episodes to people who would like them and subscribed. These stories are complex not fairy tales. I pray you find a fertile place for your stories.
ncogbno via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/23/23
I truly adore this podcast - its topics, its cadence, its narrator, its surprising twists and revelations - and I’ve been listening to it from the beginning, but holy moly do I disdain the background music/sounds/noise. It would be a five star rating if the background sounds were removed or at...Read full review »

I have been listening to The Memory Palace for many years now and it’s still my favorite podcast. Nate does an amazing job of finding unknown moments in history and presenting them intimately and warmly. So glad I have followed his journey through these many years. You will not be disappointed.
Sarahlovesradio via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/13/23
Thanks for the insightful and idiosyncratic historical tidbits that make the world turn.
Chester, SC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/23
I like these quick interesting stories told by a skilled storyteller. Though I have spotted more than a handful of small inaccuracies and a few leaps that are bit questionable. In fairness, it was on a few stories that I happen to have in depth knowledge on due to my career. Most of the stories...Read full review »

Poetic and thoughtful.
mspassell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/23
You’ve reposted the same episode like 6 times and it’s so prevalent that it gets annoying how many times it re-appears while scrolling for old episodes
My New Least Fav via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/23
I have listened to a lot of podcasts over the years but have yet to find one that can bump The Memory Palace from being my absolute favorite. This is a stop what you are doing and just listen type of podcast. The stories will take you on a journey you won’t soon forget. Nate’s voice will guide...Read full review »

I found this podcast in 2016 shortly before the shooting at Pulse Night Club. The White Horse was my third or fourth episode and I cried. I cried that night and the following night because I needed to listen again. Then I’ve cried every June since then knowing The White Horse will be in the line...Read full review »

No doubt in a landscape crowded with noise this show cuts through with heart and surprise
Nojohokolo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/19/23
This is my absolute favorite podcast. Nate tells such lovely stories about the footnotes in history. It’s 100% poetry in podcast form. It’s unlike anything else that I’ve ever heard
GabeAoK via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/23
This is my favorite podcast. Nate is a gifted storyteller, with a wonderful voice and delivery. I frequently (and happily) re-listen to each episode to make sure I didn’t miss anything, so subtle are the nuances in some of his beautiful sentences. The episodes are short — I wish they were longer...Read full review »

I came across this podcast last week. I looked back at your episodes and found the reading of the Great Gatsby. I had never read it. Very good story and the audio was very well done. Keep up the good work and thanks for the book.
billdebby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/23
Thank you Nate for providing me with some of my favourite stories I’ve ever heard. The stories chosen for the show are well researched and incredibly well told. I have been a long time listener and this show always hits the mark. This show will put you to sleep before bed when you can’t sleep and...Read full review »

The episodes are interesting, well written, and delivered with a calm, mellow tone. Perfect for a commute to/from work and helps prevent some of the stress and anxiety of traffic. Always a great listen.
NickKASU via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/23
Every time I see an episode pop up in my feed, I’m excited to be taken away to another time and place. This show is right up there with This American Life! Thank you, Nate!
JennyLouWag81 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/22
Lovely pieces, and lovely reading voice. Interesting & relaxing. Thank you muchly from Vancouver, Canada.
Da Suze via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/29/22
Beyond being beautifully produced and presented, this show caused me to rethink how I framed about the value of history. Nate brings a sense of empathy and reflection to stories from our past in a way that, for me at least, opens the door to contemplate what it’s like to be a human through the...Read full review »
TheThreePetes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/22
Just wow. Over the years I have been subscribed this show has made me laugh, cry, and drop my jaw in awe. Somehow Nate packs more life and history in ten minutes than most documentaries give you in 90. He makes history feel like it’s right there around you. He connects you with just the right...Read full review »

I have listened to every episode at least twice. I am sorry it took me this long to review. I have started sharing them with my nine year old son & he loves it, too.
jska88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/30/22
This is the only podcast that demands a rewind if my mind wanders or I’m interrupted, if only for a second, because every second matters. Nate’s writing is tight, his stories, phrases and words are carefully, skillfully and lovingly crafted and his voice “is like butter”! I’ve been a podcast fan...Read full review »
jchavez2020 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/23/22
Love love love this podcast. Nate has a way of finding the tiniest of historical bits maybe we’ve never heard about or maybe we have some or all, but finding the other not as well known details that make someone human or a moment more colorful or powerful and he reaches down into your soul w/ his...Read full review »
Devylish via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/17/22
So, I do learn things while listening to The Memory Palace - all kinds of things - but that’s not really a good description of the show. It’s *stories*, told not just to convey what happened, but in a way that takes you on a bit of a journey, and conveys emotions, overtones, the multi-layered...Read full review »
One Eric R of many via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/22
A clever and beautiful podcast. I love that it’s not too long, not over explained. Nate’s voice is wonderful. My only (very small) gripe is that occasionally there are long silences. I’m fine with them on the whole because they add to the atmosphere, but if they go on too long I end up checking...Read full review »
southseagirl via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/04/22
I look forward to new episodes of The Memory Palace like no other podcast. Nate writes and narrates these stories with deep insight and genuine grace, casting warm light into all kinds of surprising little corners of history. This is beautiful work.
LetsBInformed via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/22
Bringing humanity to history - utterly unique and enthralling. I love this podcast!
PodFan032021 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/22
I really liked the podcast and was listening to the first casts but starter to just go with the most recent ones. I listen to a few and I couldn’t help but notice the passive interjection of race into them. He chose to inject race into the stories. Technically that could be considered racist...Read full review »
