Customer Reviews

Why I’m unsubscribing

Sorry folks, after 3 years of faithful listening, the SJW lens in which you review everything has worn me down. From the perspective of this very Asian listener, the broad opinions you give off is if the work doesn’t have a major black, gay, or feminist character’s garbage. And unfortunately, every panelists has this perspective! Bring more diverse opinions and I’ll come back.

Nice topics, better hosts needed

I enjoy the topics covered on this podcast, but the hosts make me feel like I'm overdosing on twee earnestness.

Its about the hosts, not the content...

While looking for new pop culture podcasts I stumbled upon pop culture happy hour. After listening to a handful of episodes, it turned out that the hosts seem to talk more about themselves than the content. I'm a huge fan of NPR, but with this podcast I 'get' where people are coming from when they talk about the annoyingly smug attitude of some NPR hosts. It's a real shame as there are moments that really grab me, but they are few and far between.
