This show used to be incredible to the point where I would experience intense emotion listening to each story. But lately, my god. It feels like a SJW sermon each time they drop a new part. Yes, the Program is social commentary. I get that. But lately it feels the producers aren’t even trying to...Read full review »

Great podcast! I love this podcast SO much. But I’m a premium subscriber and I really think there should be more episodes more often.
Crazygrenade via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/23
Holy crap! This is so incredibly well written, so captivating. Listening in late ‘23 and the first episode is very poignant with the current world state.

5-stars ++ Entertaining, thought provoking, well produced tales of society, technology, and futurism through a lens reminiscent of Jean Baudrillard. The future is refreshing, inspired, while being timely. It provides a narrative of social possibilities that are sorely missed in modern...Read full review »

The concept of money laid out in the show has wormed its way deep into my brain. The NIMBY episode just pops up multiple times a week. The whole show is clever, insightful and just a bit spooky sometimes, I love it
KitaeKatzen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/23
The very random schedule that they come out on really sucks. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it but knowing it’s gunna be months for the next episode? That’s tough to keep me hooked.
Bored overlord via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/08/23
Probably the most eye-opening and entertaining audio series out there. Educational, funny, scary, touching, it's all there. If you want to take part in a thought experiment about AI, capitalism, our society and being human in general, give it a listen. Can recommend it 100%.Read full review »

Just listened to your stellar podcast about housing and homelessness matters. Thanks a million! Not since hearing Chris Moore clarify such contentious matters has my soul found genuine peacefulness. Best wishes.

The Program has easily become my favorite podcast in a matter of days. The story telling and world building of every episode is top tier. There was no hesitation in supporting this show I have loved every second of it and can’t wait to see where the story takes us!
CommieJamesPolk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/23
This is one of the most amazing, inspiring, emotional and insightful shows. It’s visionary. The fact that this masterpiece is made by a handful of people for a handful of money puts all of those overproduced bores out there to utter shame. Please, for the love of goodness, taste and quality,...Read full review »

I’ve never been much into podcasts, as I could never find one that kept my attention. That all changed during a recent road trip, when I stared listening to The Program, and was instantly hooked! During the trip, I had been listening to the Program on Spotify. As soon as I got home I dug...Read full review »
itsallcaps via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/23
Truly one of the best audio-dramas I’ve ever heard. Wise, philosophical, witty, and covering a wide array of genres this piece of speculative fiction gives us a good look at where we’re going but a clear and concise lesson on how we can change that. So glad I gave this one a listen. The Program...Read full review »
claireratesdystopia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/23
If you listen to this podcast now you’ll get to brag about it one day when it blows up and gets the attention it deserves. You’ll get to say “I knew about it before it went mainstream” I’m only playing. But for real..this show is so freaking good! I respect the creator for refusing to use...Read full review »
JaneBerlinH via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/23
The latest episode “Memory Leak” was phenomenal. The acting and writing both hit it out of the park. I needed to leave a review about this one. The emotion at the end had my wife and I both in tears for the last 10 minutes. It took us on our own emotional roller coasters for entirely...Read full review »

Or we can only hope it will. A stunningly insightful and moving experience. It will change the way you operate.
Sashira via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/23
Super thoughtful and imaginative writing, great acting and audio production values. If you’re just starting you have a lot of really compelling listening to look forward to.
OG Bucco via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/23
Honestly the best piece of content I have experienced in the last 5 years. Deserves its own HBO series!
NuPacShakur via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/22
Initially, this was a very compelling podcast. The basic premise gave an opportunity to create and flesh out a dystopian future with a utopian wrapper…it was very in tune with the trajectory of the modern world. However, it seems the creators/writers have run out of ideas and have abandoned...Read full review »

This is so good. So well made. No other podcast I have ever heard compares to this. I only wish I could turn off the background music.
estron via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 11/06/22
When I came home and kept listening to this podcast rather than watch tv, I knew I had to write a review. This is one of those sit in the car even after you’ve arrived at your destination so can finish the episode shows. Creative, well-constructed, professionally and seamlessly produced, with...Read full review »
session sf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/14/22
The writing is just stunning. I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen writing for an audio drama at this level for a show that is relatively small. The production quality is great and most of the voice acting is perfect. Though, Zack Valenti plays multiple characters, which is a little odd. Not that I...Read full review »
Dr. Sonnetgirl64 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/22
I came across this podcast accidentally a few days ago and have been rabidly binge listening ever since. It has Black Mirror vibes and I have been captivated by each episode so far. It is the first show I have ever taken the plunge to subscribe to and take the time to write a lengthy review for....Read full review »

As the title says, this podcast is just wow. Every story had me so engaged. I stumbled upon this podcast and I am so glad I did. I can totally see this becoming a show. Please make lots and lots more episodes!
VickyAlvarado88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/22
I randomly started listening to podcasts and when this came up I actually decided to subscribe and PAY for it. I am VERY frugal so that is huge for me. I’ve been telling everyone about this podcast and I neeeeeed more episodes. Such a great show and so thought provoking. Love it.
Taradise221 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/22
I am an avid podcast listener. I listen to about six a day as I work, commute, cook, clean, etc. This podcast is Chicken Soup for my podcast-loving soul. I don’t usually share the podcasts I listen to but I have shared this with my friends. I can’t get enough of it! Please keep it up. This one...Read full review »
Ayanna from Memphis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/21/22
This show was incredible at the very start, now it is a bunch of jumbled up woke crap. Non-linear is fine if done right, but story lines are not explained well and the world/lore building is lazy or non existent. Don’t waste your time.
TB12 - 47 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/03/22
This podcast came out of nowhere for me, I can’t believe someone is making something this good. I am an avid fiction podcast listener, and this is a great example of what is so compelling about the medium. For anyone still sad about the end of Limetown, start listening now. The program comes for...Read full review »

Just listened to this episode and I think it is the best one yet, amazing episode, they always make you think so much, and are entertaining from start to finish. Absolutely loved the longer format, and enjoyed the stereo play when listening on headphones. What a triumph this was. Always get...Read full review »

Honestly I cannot recommend this enough. I’ve been listening to podcasts for over 10 years avidly. I consume media quickly and often forget it and move on just as quick. But this podcast blows every other thing out of the water. The world building is 10/10 Story writing 10/10 The voice acting...Read full review »

Well written concepts that span a compelling stretch of time.
Thescriptguy via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/14/22
This is one of the best podcasts I’ve heard in some time. It reminds me of Black Mirror, but with a twist. I’d love to see these turned into Netflix or Quibi episodes. 2/4 Update: Ooh, “Jakob’s Notebook” is going to make some people get all flustered lol. I love The Program!
Ahdawnis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/22
It’s not the best scripted, not the best acted, not the best produced, but it’s the one I remember because this future is actually unfolding in front of us. This is no dulling dystopia, post apocalypse re-run, Star Trek/Wars spaceship empires, or magical realism. I do like all these and enjoy...Read full review »
ahhmmmm via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/06/21
I’ve listened to the available episodes—22 so far—twice now, as I have been so spoiled by the intelligent writing, excellent performances and faultless sound design that no other podcasts can really compare. Some standout episodes evoke the bittersweet emotions from ‘Tales From the Loop’, and...Read full review »

An incredibly well done series the voice acting is awesome and the story is fun to put together! Definitely recommend if it if you’re a fan of Syfy dramas
wardenthegrey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/21
Tells the story of our next few decades through the lens of people in our future being interviewed about the past, like in a history documentary. Fascinating and thoughtfully developed. While it would be easy to think it is a left-leaning podcast, listening to more “interviews” rounds out the...Read full review »
Mom of 5 and 7 year-olds via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/21
This podcast is wanting you to think it is just a fun fictional podcast bud really is a blatant and poorly done opinion on American culture. It seems like the creators are very unhappy with everything that surrounds them. I’m sorry you are unhappy.
RigobertoE1234 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/21
Wow! I am a podcast junky in this genre and all I can say is WOW! This is by far the best random stumble I have come across. The stories are self contained but also linked to the overarching theme. Deep, emotional, and just the right amount of dystopian. Please listen, tell a friend and give this...Read full review »

What a great way to tell this story.
popaduce via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/11/21
The Program is back! Thank you IMS!
BeAnBeAn22 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/16/21
This would only be self fulfilling if idiots were the majority. Fortunately that is not true. This is as pure fiction as you can get. Propaganda-ish and it’s amazing how people will dream of this. Well written but seems to be done to encourage people to think this is what lies ahead. Falls flat.
piosop via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/12/21
“The Program” is a SciFi podcast that is as if NPR had a baby with Black Mirror or Twillight Zone in the future. The stories and interviews are great. Thoroughly engrossed in it. As with most podcasts the first couple episodes were pretty good but not representative of how amazing it is. Give it...Read full review »
