Fun to listen to, a few suggestions

I have loved this podcast since I first listened to the Mission Impossible episode two years ago. I do have suggestions, though. I wish the hosts would do two things: First, make sure they both have actually watched the movie. Second, stop speculating that the mere presence of a woman in the writing room leads to better, intersection-aware characters. They raise their hands and admit that it is speculation, but continuing to put it forth is detrimental to what I think is the podcast’s goal of increasing awareness of not just non-cis-male but also non-white, non-cis-anything, and non-hetero representation in film, in my opinion. Having written in an all-female-identifying group for four years, I can tell you that we certainly produced female characters of whom we are not too proud, looking back. Women can write women poorly, too. Aside from that, I love the podcast. It lightens gloomy days and indulges my nostalgia for the movies I watched when I was younger. That feeling when they pick up on something that has bothered me about a movie is amazing!

You are so annoying OMG ,

Fun to listen to, but not super insightful

This is a conversational podcast, so don't expect any real structure or in-depth analysis (also, prepare for a LOT of tangents not related to the movie). The level of actual critique is really dependent on the guest they have, but it is typically more of a surface level discussion. Being a woman of a similar age as the hosts, I especially enjoy listening to the episodes about movies I/we watched as young teens (Clueless, Mean Girls, Bring It On, etc), and the difference in viewing these movies as adults.

Edit: As the podcast has progressed, it has become more structured, which is great!

Great Content

I love this podcast, y’all are so funny and smart, I’ve listened to almost every episode. Also I just found out from the little miss sunshine episode that Caitlin and I have the same birthday :)
