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.

ISSUE #5 with TODD BARRY and A BRIEF VIEW OF THE HUDSON →

In this our first double issue of the TYF! podcast, we talk to Todd Barry (from the movie The Wrestler and his recent Comedy Central 1-hour special, Super Crazy) about getting his start in Florida with Carrot Top, how Larry the Cable Guy drove him to his first paid gig, and about how podcasting has yet to reach its final threshold: someone killing themselves mid-interview.

Plus, we talk to local NYC folk rock duo A Brief View of the Hudson, who tell us a few stories about their early days, explain their method for writing the score to Tell Your Friends! The Concert Film!, and then take to the streets of Williamsburg to serenade the locals with a couple of songs from their new album, Querencea.

In addition, writer Mike Sacks takes us up and down the emotional dial of morning radio and we take another trip down Ted Travelstead's Story Hole.

All this, and Liam McEneaney reads an excerpt from his entire book, “The 25 People You Will Meet In Heaven.”
