REVIEWS:
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."

Splitsider:
"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."


CultureBrats.com:
"...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.

Tell Your Friends! The Only Podcast That Matters! 
"Like Comedy Bang Bang!, Liam McEneaney’s Tell Your Friends! The Only Podcast That Matters! is based on a popular live comedy show and features a comedian host talking to other comedians; but that’s where the similarities end. Instead of the absurdist audio vaudeville of Scott Aukerman’s podcast, 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. Tell Your Friends combines charming literary vignettes from both its host and his friends—the most memorable of which involves the larger existential and philosophical ramifications of swapping pens with Bob Dylan—with entertaining interviews with comedians Eddie Pepitone and W. Kamau Bell and musician Mike Doughty, who plays a song he claims was rejected from the Twilight soundtrack. McEneaney’s curiosity and affection for people and their fascinating imperfections comes through in both his stories and interviews. Tell Your Friendshas a cozy, nicely lived-in feel. It’s easy to imagine McEneaney—whose career recently got a boost when he appeared on WTF and A Special Thing released a terrific, star-studded Tell Your Friends!concert film on DVD and VOD—hosting in a comfy cardigan while sipping from a mug of cocoa in a book-lined apartment. Not everything on the podcast works, but its likeability and gentleness go a long way, and McEneaney’s willingness to playfully tweak the podcast form bodes well for its future. [NR]”
