Customer Reviews

Brilliant and human

It sounds a little improvised and unrehearsed sometimes, but I enjoy that aspect only for this podcast; I love how I can hear the processing of thoughts and ideas, and I learn so much. There are wonderful guests, and it is so nice to watch film and read books differently, more critically based on the ideas I glean from this podcast.

Feminist podcast, mainly about movies

Crispin is brilliant and uncompromising, I’d say the most cogent and forceful feminist voice of her generation — and this is a “feminist podcast,” the best one, but that description doesn’t quite encapsulate what the podcast is about — it’s thematically eccentric, with some episodes on broad topical matters and many many others narrowly focused on the works of a handful of filmmakers. I recommend browsing episode descriptions for a subject that interests you, it’s difficult to get an idea of this show will appeal to you or not based on any episode taken at random.

Smart + unapologetic

I love Jessa’s unflinching + oftentimes unpopular takes on things like marriage and the current state of feminism. Super grateful for this podcast.
