Yikes

If you want advice from someone who who screams at people on Twitter for being a “Russian paid troll” every time they dare to ask “what will Joe Biden do for my community, I’m struggling,” I guess this is the nutso you listen to!

Had low expectations but this is really really good and interesting. It’s well produced and the content is very interesting

Another Grand Slam

I discovered the strong, unique voice of Sasha Stone 11 or so years ago when I was certain there must be more to the Oscar race than a handful of weeks where actors parade in their Sunday best and congratulate one another. I was right.

All these years later, I have learned so much through her writing and her numerous podcasts—not only about the Oscars, but film, politics, and society.

Sasha’s voice is so genuine that you feel like she is right there in the room with you. She doesn’t look down on you from a lofty height but answers your questions and follows you on social media.

The Oscar race needs Sasha Stone and running through the gauntlet every year is so much more fun with her by your side.
