The Show

Fall in love with humanity, one stranger at a time. That is the driving force behind The Stunner. Each episode features a character, real or fictional, and the values they represent. With a lighthearted and introspective tone, the show lingers in the listener's ears long after the player stops.


Those who join the podcast understand that they aren't here to share their know-how or newsworthy stories; but rather to investigate their passions and proclivities. They are not afraid to sound "too deep", "too nerdy", or "too weird".


Interview. Averaging 30 minutes, but can go beyond an hour if merited. Guests are invited to talk about a topic of interest.

Minicast. Less than 15 minutes. The host reflects on a work of fiction or poetry. Consider this form a first cousin to the literary review. Minicast transcripts are available on

New episodes are uploaded on Tuesdays 12MN PST.

The podcast prides itself in its consistency, structure, and editing. Both guest and audience are regarded with utmost respect during the different production stages.
