Honestly the best piece of content I have experienced in the last 5 years. Deserves its own HBO series!

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 »

Incredibly deserving of 5-stars. An entertaining, thought provoking, and well produced analysis of society, technology, and futurism through the lens of Jean Baudrillard’s Philosophy. Storytelling at it’s best - diving into this world leaves one wanting the production to continue...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.

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 »

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

It’s great.
Riftmarked via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/22
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 »
Catiebear212 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/22
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 »

I almost never give a 5 stars rating but this podcast deserves it! High quality, good writing, good cast! So yea the grinch ( me ) will give a 5 star! Love it and congratulations to the team!!
Eddy tytan via Apple Podcasts · Romania · 09/12/21
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 »

This was my first audio drama that I have ever listened to and to this day is still my favourite. I just love storytelling, characters and worldbuilding. Hope there are many more episodes to come.
Atreine via Apple Podcasts · Slovakia · 06/27/21
I am not usually into anthologies. But this series is just genius. I love it. There’s nothing more to say. Love it.
StickerHogg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/21
I figured it would be creepy or sci-fi maybe funny or scary BUT what I didn’t expect was to be struck mute and still. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of all of the above, but so many times I found myself with a few tears falling silently down my cheeks and dinner burning or washer full with...Read full review »

Hands down....Probably the best podcast I’ve listened to. Story line, production value, and quality are superb. Thank you for creating this.
Gamely_Eh_Me via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/16/21
This show is so well done! It had my interest from the first episode. I honestly would give it more then 5 stars if I could
cd1121 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/21
Listen to a lot of pod cast. This one has really grabbed me. Plot twists along and keeps you guessing, however each episode stands alone. What is the program Who created it Where will it lead us.
Feral4by via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/17/21
Amazingly well made Sci Fi audio drama. I love audio dramas and The Program is one of the very best. Great writing with intriguing Sci Fi stories and fantastic voice acting!
MaxValter via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 02/17/21
I enjoyed listening to all episodes! Definitely one of the best fiction podcasts. Can’t wait for new stories!
iiims via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/17/21
I haven’t stopped telling people to listen to this. It’s absolutely amazing. It had me hooked from the beginning. Hands down, the BEST podcast I have listened to. The production quality is the best I’ve ever heard.
Lslb via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/13/21
It’s made me both laugh out loud and cry- sometimes even both during the same episode. I’m running out of episodes fast, hoping for the quantity to multiply and the quality to stay top notch. Many thanks for the Program!
arvioiarvioni via Apple Podcasts · Finland · 01/07/21
Highly interesting and intriguing. Comparable to The Truth podcast & Black Mirror tv series. Great dialogue.
AlexPreslex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/20
The Program is thought-provoking and well produced in all ways possible. Perfect acting, phenomenal writing, and has a spot-on, immersive score. If you’re looking for the next audio drama to get into, this is the one.
Yamspices via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/20
Ok, this is coming from someone who is listening to MANY fiction and non fiction podcasts: This podcast is phenomenal. Considering it is done by one person, the writing is on point, it includes fantastic acting and sound design. One down side: there should be more episodes!
kemmko via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/26/20
I didn’t really know what to expect from this podcast and that continued from episode to episode. I usually hate slow reveal but I love the way each episode gives you another little piece of the puzzle here. Very unique storylines and great delivery. The music was not so great but it didn’t ruin...Read full review »
