“Gotham Variety can stand shoulder to shoulder with The Truth - a similar show that puts together a New York coterie of actors doing audio fiction - and I’ll happily recommend it to anybody. Take a look at what Joe Rubenstein is doing and that’s how you do it. Be mindful of the minor things and do it with love - but he’s obviously a very skilled individual too. Five stars, easy. It’s kind of like Old Time Radio brought to life and colorized and widescreened - a modernization of something classical. It has that kind of timeless feel.”
- Matt Houlihan, The Podcast Review Show
“What we all really like and admire is when something is genuinely atmospheric, and Joe does that by inviting us in as our host, and then the sound design is great, excellent music, very good New York actors, and it’s all complementary. It just so happened we recently listened to Orson Welles’ Mercury Theater on the Air, and this does follow into that tradition: very good ensemble work, but there’s one leader to this group, and that’s Joe. His hand is very much on it. We’re all going to subscribe and listen to every episode. Five stars from all of us!”
- Thea Gilien, The Podcast Review Show
"This anthology podcast of dramatized short stories in the public domain creates a beautiful soundscape for listeners to experience these classic tales in a whole new way. These tales range from thriller to horror to nonfiction, each different and distinct."

Hooked! by Kedmoomoo ★★★★★
I just started getting into audio dramas and this is a great one. It has the feel of an old radio show, which I love,
minus the hokey nature of the old ones. The sound effects are realistic and the voice actors are great. Can't
wait for more!
