Scarjo A Go-Go is the podcast where we chronicle and dissect the films of Scarlett Johansson one-by-one in chronological order, learning everything there is to know about her career and her craft as she grows from tiny nugget to A-list actor. It is presented with respect, humour, and academic rigor. And we only ever refer to her by the reductive "Scarjo" in the title/theme song, because it rhymes. Ms. Johansson, we salute you!

Super fun

I love listening to this when I run. It sounds bizarre, but listening to Scarlett grow up through her film career has really helped me with my marathon training. Thanks for the great podcast!

A must listen!

I came for the Scarjo. I stayed for the host. He's a true American treasure even if he doesn't know it.

This guy is a brilliant writer and each episode is both insightful and hilarious. I'm not really a Scarjo super fan, and never dreamed I would want to spend who knows how many hours listening to a tribute to her...and yet after hearing one, I binge listened to every episode and can't wait to hear more.

The format is more like an essay than your typical podcast, but it works perfectly. I could go on and on about it, but really you should just start from episode one and give it a listen!
