The Best Movie Podcast I’ve Encountered?

Carolyn Petit and Ebony might just have the best movie criticism podcast I’ve ever encountered. Their chemistry is great and the podcast strikes a great balance between personal take and humor as well critical examination with good examples of why they each feel the way they do about the movies. Things move along fluidly, the pace is great and I’m always entertained, never bored.

I’m a white guy (cisgender) so it’s great to see which parts of movies translate in a more universal way and yet also get some really different perspectives on gender and race in the movies reviewed. It comes across organically and authentically, never pretentiously. Even when they were finding flaws with one of my favorite movies, I wasn’t at all offended because they presented their perspectives in ways that completely made sense and were well supported.

If you want a movie podcast that genuinely makes you both laugh and think, that’s willing to both appreciate sentimentality and artistry while also exploring flaws and problematic elements, then this is the podcast for you. I love it and hope you do too.

Weird But Fun Film Podcast

Though my tastes don’t always align with theirs, I love listening to Carolyn and Ebony dive into different films that they pick. I also like the game/point aspect. I hope this podcast comes back soon!

please respond please ,

Hella fun

It’s okay i kinda like feminist frequency but this is them at their best but just saying I think it would be really fun if they had a podcast with a racist, a feminist and someone in between.
