Changed my rating

Recently listened after a long hiatus. So nice to see Anney and Samantha have brought this podcast back to the Kristen and Caroline former glory!!! Now that it’s good again, I’m resubscribing! Keep up the good work ladies!

Annie & Sam: get it together, ladies!

I’m a longtime listener to SMNTY, jumping on board shortly after Caroline replaced Molly. I was crushed when C&C left (their new project, Unladylike, is great!) and felt that Bridget and Emilie were awful replacements. I unsubscribed, but circled back this year when I realised Annie & Samantha had taken over. Unfortunately I’m really disappointed, not usually with the topic choices but with the way in which they’re covered. As others have noted, often the dialogue doesn’t flow naturally and feels very scripted.

At other times, such as when the hosts are sharing personal anecdotes or opinions, it’s painfully awkward and hard to relate to. I really don’t want to shame Annie and Samantha, but all I could think about during the recent eggplant emoji episode is what absolute prudes they both are! Was that just me? Neither of them have ever sexted? That’s fine, but seems unusual, and the underlying tone is that they both find it distasteful. Seeing as this is a feminist podcast, it would be cool to hear sex and topics relating to sex discussed more openly and comfortably. For example, Samantha saying that sexting emoji combinations make her “just sad”? Kind of uptight and judgy there, pal. Also, Samantha repeatedly brought up that if someone’s penis looks like an eggplant or a mushroom, they should go to a doctor and she doesn’t want you anywhere near her- this verges on shamey and also totally misses the point!

I so badly want to love this podcast, but the hosts need to get it together. One quick tip: stop doing dictionary definitions to start off topics. It’s amateur-basement-podcast meets cringy-wedding-speech vibes.

Tell me why I still don’t know what my mom never told me

Do not get this if you want to know what your mom never told you as a kid. It sounds like a robot it doesn’t even sound like people talking and it sounds like everything is written from a script it doesn’t even sound like they’re talking like normal people.
