Listen to the older episodes

I agree with many other recent reviewers: this podcast is not what it once was. Bridget and Anney never really vibed as co-hosts, and Anney and Samantha don’t seem to have the right energy to keep it going. And the topics have gotten SO heavy. Well and good once in a while, but really too much all the time. Even the “fun” episode in their recent miniseries about trauma (the one ostensibly about sex) ended up being depressing. My advice is go back and listen to some of the earlier episodes. The one Bridget and Emily did on sexism in Silicon Valley I especially liked, and there are many other slightly lighter (but no less interesting) episodes.

Also I will say I love Anney on Savor (another How Stuff Works podcast she co-hosts), but somehow she has never had the same energy on SMNTY.

Need New Hosts

I used to LOVE this podcast but lately it has fallen flat. The current host isn’t nearly as engagingly previous hosts which makes it hard to stay interested. She also seems to struggle to connect with guests on the show. I’d hate to stop supporting this podcast so now I only listen to the SMNTY Classics. Hoping for new dynamic and engaging hosts again soon!

Not what it once was

I used to really enjoy this podcast, but I’m finally going to have to let it go. The current host doesn’t have the energy or enthusiasm to engage me in *any* topic (and unlike some previous reviewers, I very much live for nerdy discussions), and the miniseries on trauma was just exhausting. Delving into heavy topics is one good, but focusing *exclusively* on them for an entire month was a serious misfire, particularly for a listener who suffers from clinically diagnosed depression. I had to stop listening a few minutes into the first episode, but figured you’d be back on a topic I could handle the next week...but the reprieve never came...

Finally, I was moved to write this review after I saw another former subscriber note that she was switching over to Unladylike—a friend and I had that exact conversation just a few days ago. I hate to say this, but it’s really filled the void left by the unfortunate shuffling of SMNTY hosts, and the two women who helm it pretty much knock it out the park every episode.

Maybe I’ll be back if there’s another hosting change...until then, I’m sorry to say that there’s no reason for me to stick around here.
