Fun and Fantastic!

For so long, I had been looking for a thoughtful pop culture podcast that was fun, yet covered topics with depth (serious and/or comedic). I’m so happy that I discovered The Cooler a couple of years ago, and I love the topics that the wonderful hosts cover. For me, I’ve been thrilled to hear the original ideas that are covered, and also the revisits of important events from years past that may not have been covered much, at least for our generation. I’ve listened to every episode and have about a dozen saved that I re-listen to every few months... this podcast is that fabulous! Thank you, Jamedra, Emmanuel, Carly, and KQED, for this gem of a podcast.

I’m a total Carly

Me and two of my best buds listen to your podcast all the time and we’ve determined which of the three hosts most mirrors our personalities. The three of us agree that I’m a total Carly. This became especially evident on one episode where Emmanuel made a joke about the Rachel Ray/Rachel Roy mix-up among some Beyoncé fans. When Carly was cracking up, so was I. Good show!

witty, delightful, refreshing

Smart, young hosts with excellent and hilarious social commentary. They are local and have taken local requests/ suggestions for show topics. Occasionally there is a history lesson/ recap and these are amazing gems. This podcast is intellegent, funny, and accessible. I am so glad I found it and can not get enough of it. Unplayed episodes never sit in my que for more than 24 hours.
