The AV Club:
"Tell Your Friends favors a genteel, literary tone that evokes the soothing storytelling of Ira Glass and This American Life more than the comedy-podcast template of comedians gabbing with other comedians about comedy stuff...
McEneaney’s curiosity and affection for people and their fascinating imperfections comes through in both his stories and interviews. Tell Your Friends has a cozy, nicely lived-in feel."

"More of a magazine-style show than a straight comic-on-comic interview... Tell Your Friends! has a more polished feel than the average podcast, tightly edited with jingles and commercials that you won’t need to skip through."

"...I so immensely enjoy the Tell Your Friends podcast. It's like a funnier, more alternative version of NPR. Host and producer Liam McEneaney calls each episode an "issue," like an issue of a magazine, which is the best way to describe it. Each episode includes a variety of formats, including interviews, storytelling, written comedic monologues, and other free-flowing thoughts. Liam McEneany is a longtime staple of the New York comedy scene and therefore has a lot of connections, but seems to value having interesting and engaging guests with a particular story to tell rather than personal friends."

Hosted and produced by Liam McEneaney.

TYF PODCAST #2: Mike Doughty →

In this week’s issue, Liam McEneaney interviews singer/songwriter Mike Doughty (ex Soul Coughing, The Book of DrugsThe Flip is Another Honey) about vacationing in Southeast Asia and what it means to be “the only white man in the movie,” getting his start in the avant-jazz scene of the Knitting Factory in the ’90s, and how Beavis & Butthead were the only critics who got it right.

Mike also sings a couple of songs, one that he cowrote with an unlikely trio and one that was commissioned for the Twilight soundtrack.

Plus, Laura Jayne Martin tell the story of her summer job driving an ice cream truck, and we take a trip down Ted Travelstead's Story Hole

All this and Liam describes his day working as a carnie.
