Absolutely Fantastic show

Everything about the show is absolutely fantastic! The hosts, the content, the lights (special shout out to the review highlight at the end of each episode)…All.Of.It!!!

Carolina Candillo ,

Could use diversity of thought

Long time listener here. I have been thoroughly entertained by the back and forth banter of the show. However I think similar to SNL and why it’s not as funny anymore in my opinion is that it does not mock the other side of the isle (the left side of politics). I understand that everyone here makes fun of conservatives and evangelicals but it would be more interesting to me if you had some one that had the audacity to mock the other side too. However, I know that would take more courage in current culture to do that.

morgaly4 ,

Yeah, I’m out.

I used to love The Popcast. I became a BFOTS in 2016 and told so many people to listen to it over the years. But it’s changed. If I had to pinpoint a time it started to feel icky, it was 2020. And knowing the PMG, they will probably immediately lump me into a certain group/stereotype. But, no. They’ve become very “mean girl” since then. They claim some horrendous accusations about celebrities and slap an “allegedly” label on it so it’s ok. They don’t do very well with criticism either. This isn’t just about the Kate episode either. I do still listen to the Over Under Achievers as I don’t find Knox and Jason to be as mean-spirited as Jamie and even Erin, the resident Bible scholar. But, The Popcast is not for me anymore.
