I've been listening since it first started, years ago. It's great, the variety between different systems is awesome, and the overall cast is great.

RPPR Something for everyone, and everything great quality

I started listening a few years ago because of some specific content that I was interested in. I have gone on to consume their entire library. There is enough variety to spark interest, and everything is good enough quality that you will find yourself enjoying things you would not have thought to listen to previously. On top of that, they have a good cast that plays well together and is interesting in their own right.
