The Secret Room
Anyone who enjoyed The Tell Show will warm to this similar offering, one among a small stable of podcasts in the At Will Radio network (founded by fancy restaurant person Will Malnati and ex-Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz - yes, this is news to us, too). Helmed, like The Tell Show, by a pair of charming hosts who intermittently share their own secrets, guests in this case are everyday people, rather than famous personalities, and their identities are concealed. The cloak of anonymity allows for higher-stakes confessions: we hear from a woman who has covered up an ill-advised, six-week marriage; an NSA official on state secrets; an actual user of Ashley Madison. It's a high-quality production, judiciously edited and narrated, funny and surprising by turns. Hoover this up, discreetly.
