We're working on a new version of PRX. Want a sneak peek?

The Mortified Podcast

GroupAccount image

Ripped from the pages of real life, The Mortified Podcast features adults on stage sharing the awkward and embarrassing artifacts of their youth… in front of total strangers.  From teenage diaries to pretentious college poetry to middle school love letters, each weekly episode features one performance culled from the audio archives of Mortified stage shows, running for over thirteen years.  Based on the popular stage show, the podcast is alternately by Dave Nadelberg (Mortified founder, Mortified Sessions TV series host) and Neil Katcher (Mortified Artistic Director).
