Well I’ve binged all 105 episodes. Great podcast and an even better host. Scott allows his guests speak and asks thoughtful and purposeful questions. Highly recommend!

I’m a True Crime fan. HOWEVER…I love these stories. I also love the fact that the episodes are a bit longer in length. They get me through my hike!! Thanks and keep them coming.

I stopped listening to all my other podcasts because I can’t stop listening to this one. I’m actually glad I discovered this in March 2022 so I can binge 100+ episodes. Excellent!

As far as podcasts hosted by men go, I find this one the least annoying. He doesn’t think he’s funny or disrespect anyone. The US navy propaganda he chooses to put on here in the form of ad space takes away 2 stars for me personally though. Gross.

I discovered this podcast a few weeks ago and have quickly binged 50+ episodes. The host has a calming, friendly voice and I love his interview style (he actually really listens and lets his guests speak!). The guests and their stories are so unique ; I love that each episode takes you on a...Read full review »

If you’re a fan of the Secret Room or This is Actually Happening, this is a podcast for you! The stories are incredible and will offer some very unique perspectives from people in very unique circumstances. Love this podcast!

I came across this podcast by chance and was immediately hooked. There’s nothing more engaging than real people telling their real stories. Can’t wait to binge the rest of the episodes.

This is a wonderful podcast. Moving true stories very well presented by those sharing their lives with us. Host is courteous & emphatic—allows the stories to unfurl without constant interruptions. A gem!

Such a great podcast!! It’s nice to hear these stories of people overcoming bad situations and prevailing. Host Scott approaches each interview with compassion and asks all the questions I have brewing in my head during the interview. From one podcaster to another, keep up the great work!!! Tommy

AmbySharp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/22
I typically listen to podcasts to grow my mindset as an entrepreneur, but I have a few on my list for pure entertainment only. This show scratches that itch. I don't know where Scott finds these stories of orginary people in extraordinary situations of life and death. It's compelling and...Read full review »

These stories, told first hand with Scott’s incredible interviewing skills, are so inspiring! I just discovered this podcast so am currently bingeing & have yet to find an episode that hasn’t left me in awe. It’s a great listen!

This has become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to. Scott is so compassionate and caring! He is perfectly empathetic and is perfect for this podcast!!
jenmarie223 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/22
If you’re a fan of this podcast, like I have been since the very first episode I listened to, then you are most likely someone who is or aspires to be an empathetic person. Scott, the host, is clearly a deeply empathetic person, given that the entire podcast is based around the concept of hearing...Read full review »

The real stories behind each episode is riveting, and the host is very skilled. He treats each guest with grace and skilled at unearthing details in thoughtful and respectful ways. I love that these are real people with real experiences, and while the experiences aren’t delightful they survived....Read full review »

I absolutely love these interviews. I love that they range in topic so drastically, yet each one is delivered with so much respect and thoughtfulness. I am never disappointed, never. Keep up the great work! Happy New Year!!

Amy gave a very compelling perspective of this tragic event in Oklahoma. She had a knack for story telling and it’s no surprise she is a motivational speaker and wrote a book. Her self awareness was so relatable and entertaining. It’s hard to believe she was able to recall such specific...Read full review »

It had me in tears. Losing an animal would be one of the hardest things. However, I watched the video and I’m kind of sorry I did-when she yelled at Scooby, that was hard to see.

OMG!!! They way Brooke sounds when she tells her story, I think she’s still feeling the anesthesia from surgery, she speaks so slow, I bet her eyes are barely open while she’s talking, I couldn’t listen to it & I wanted to 🥴🥴👎🏽

I can’t begin to explain how much I love this podcast! I am very sad that I have finished all the episodes. I wish I could find a podcast exactly like this one! This podcast is unique in its own. I recommend this podcast every day. It deserves so much attention! I can’t wait for new episodes!!

stephlucy730 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/21
This podcast is so well done. The author/interviewer has such an empathetic and humble way about him and interjects just the right amount. Also love that it covers quite intense stories but in a way that is kind of uplifting/positive.
Very well done podcast! via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 10/13/21
This is a well thought out, well produced, great sounding podcast featuring great stories. While we all know getting your faced chewed off by a bear is not fun, it's the "after it happened" story that has me sitting in the driveway listening instead of going into the house.

I love podcasts like this that let people tell their own crazy experiences. I do like the structure of the podcast This Is Actually Happening more, because I get tired of hearing Scott.

Great podcast when it’s not preaching progressive agenda. Originally tuned in because I love the stories, as of late it seems every story has an agenda behind it.
