Great Pace and Commentary

I happened upon this podcast when I was looking up a few stories about the 90s. I love the jokes, descriptiveness, and elocution of the writers. Sarah and Michael are top notch. They would be people I could find myself being friends with in college and hanging out over coffee and beyond. Great job you two and keep it up!

I tried…

To give this show a fair shake. Been listening for about 2 months now. The host appears periodically on other pods I listen too. However the host barely holds my attention on her own here. An the general vibe is less informative and more just “here’s my version of this story…” the arrogance and girl boss attitude is ultimately what turned me away from this show. It feels like I’m listening to my ex wife complain about things while still getting them wrong. No thanks.
The show should be called “I’m wrong about” since the guests are who have the information we’re receiving a majority of the episodes. I’d rather just hear from them, an have the host take a lap an be silent while others talk about the topic they’ve been brought on to discuss.
1/5 there are way better and more informative media and news pods.

My all time favorite podcast!

Even though I miss me some Michael Hobbes + Sarah Marshall banter something fierce, it makes it all the more sweeter when they reunite! Seriously though, this podcast/Sarah + guests has/have taught me SO much. The stories are always told in such a relatable, honest, and fun way. Sarah always picks the greatest guests, too! Any Eve Lindley and Blair Braverman episodes are going to be fantastic. I am a subscriber and I find it 1000% worth it for the bonus stories and content bc I can’t get enough! Love you Sarah plz never stop YWA and Michael plz visit more! 💕
