Can’t Stop Listening!

I started listening to this show because Jerah was on Scam Goddess with Laci Mosley and I was like—this is good energy. Binge-listened to all the episodes of movies I’ve watched and then just started listening to episodes about movies I haven’t watched just because I love it. Smart, insightful, feminist, educational, enlightening, and hilarious. Thanks for making this show!

The best non political podcast in the game.

Since I grew up with immigrant parents, black media taught me how to navigate being black in America (e.g. showed me how to act when cops are present, taught me to work harder than my white counter parts, reassured me the micro aggressions I was experiencing were real, etc.) Revisiting these movies while hearing perspectives different from my own has been so much fun and enlightening. Thank you for all that you three do!

PS Jon’s transitions are the best part of the show 😊
