3rd time through

Fully watched the series twice and on the third run through. This podcast highlights details that I missed. Throughly enjoying it. Hope that it continues when the long awaited next season drops

Clemohh ,

Huge fan!

I discovered this podcast as I entered Season 5 of The Handmaids Tale and it has really improved my experience of watching the show! I love how the hosts think about all the little details that I do, and more. The theories, the predictions, it’s so much fun to listen to. And I really love the guest interviews with people front the show. Eyes on Gilead is such a treat, thank you!!

J. K. Ormson ,

Yes!!!!!

Sadly, none of my friends have been obsessed with Handmaids as much as I am. But all of the conversations I WISH I was having with them, dismantling every aspect of the show, I have found right here. Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!
