Yeah, I think this podcast is a tad overrated. When I first caught wind of it I was very intrigued, not the least because it was getting a lot of good buzz. And while there are some interesting stories in there, there is, as past commenters have mentioned, a lot of forgettable sections too.
That would be fine, except the dude who reads the stories can hardly be bothered to break from the two voices he gives (#1: deep-but-monotonous, indicating he's "serious" or "spooky"; #2: higher-pitched yet kind of joyless, like he was excited about something but lost confidence of it midway through his speech).
So yeah, it's decent, but not a great podcast
