Smart, witty, entertaining

These women are incredibly intelligent, HILARIOUS, they have great banter with each other and their guests. they give me the language to explain to friends or randoms at the bar why movies are bad (when applicable) and how our entertainment has perpetuated the stereotypes and marginalization of women and minorities. It’s educational and so so fun. They’re the best and you should listen to all 500 episodes

Stop apologizing!!

I don’t know the races of all the hosts but I’m assuming they’re white based on the amount of apologizing they do merely for existing. It’s too much. It’s overbearing. Us poc don’t care that you’re white and don’t need you to apologize for it. I want to enjoy the pod and the conversations y’all have about movies and feminism. Bullying yourselves (or letting others bully you) for being white and/or American takes away from our enjoyment in a big way. Please stop.

Perspective

I grew up watching movies that said ‘negging’ and ‘wearing her down’ was ok. Thank you for giving me the vocabulary as to why that’s just bad behavior and storytelling. I will do my best to pass that on to my sons. It’s a good podcast. Y’all should listen.
