    To kick off Mental Health Awareness Month, Jameela is joined by comedian Neal Brennan (Netflix’s Crazy Good, Chappelle's Show) to reflect on his personal exploration of shame, fear, anger, and how discovering spirituality changed his work.

Jameela Jamil for President

I listened to the episode of Podcrushed where Jameela more or less interviewed Penn and I just needed more of her. She’s quick witted, so incredibly intelligent, seems to have a wonderful sense of humor — and those words don’t even begin to describe how amazing her soul is. I absolutely adore this woman and find myself more times than not nodding along as she speaks on various issues with her guests, or even outwardly and enthusiastically saying “yes” during these conversations. Jameela is astonishing. Her guests are superb. If I could give this podcast four trillion stars, I absolutely would.

An interesting interviewer, but

She sometimes doesn’t rly internalize what her guests are talking about when they’re from disenfranchised groups she can’t personally relate to. She’s a lovable tryhard, she asks good questions of interesting guests and leaves them tons of space to respond without speaking over them. But if you read recent guest Clementine Morrigan’s sub stack, who just last month was concern trolling about trans kids and has been engaging with transphobes before by lending a “legitimizing” queer voice to their obvi phobic show? You get the sense that while Jameela Jamil wants there to be better discourse, she’s more interested in defending a bigot’s right to speak than, say, protecting the communities they are attacking. Jamil’s work walks a fine line, there’s bound to be missteps and she’s open about it, but why ask Natalie Wynn on if you’re not rly going to listen to her? It’s hard not to listen to ppl and cherry pick whatever confirms your own biases without challenging those biases, but Jamil says that is what her job is. So she should do that job.

Disinformation

I’ve listened to this podcast for years and have mostly really enjoyed it, but in the recent episode “Unpacking Pop Psychology w/Seerut K. Chawla” Jameela makes several inaccurate and harmful statements about autism/autistic people while using outdated, ableist and antisemitic terminology and functioning labels. I would normally assume a person speaking this way is just uneducated, but she’s had multiple autistic guests on the podcast in the past year to speak specifically about autism. It feels difficult to believe she didn’t learn or internalize why her statements are problematic while researching for those episodes or during the episodes themselves. As an autistic person, I’m disappointed and simply don’t feel comfortable listening to a podcast that perpetuates this kind of disinformation.
