This is my favorite podcast, right up there with This American Life. I’m really happy to have found it. I was 21 for the bronco chase and watched it live. It feels like yesterday. I found it so interesting hearing Sarah and Mike try to understand why so many people watched/cared. It is wild to listen to such bright extremely young people analyze our stuff. I love it.
Funny and Smart
Brains and humor, you two are the full package! You’re one of my favorites!!!
I wish I Could Give More Stars!
This is by far my favorite podcast of all time. I have finally gotten through all the backlog and caught up to real time which has caused major You're Wrong About withdrawals. Thank you Sarah and Michael for opening up my views on Monsters and Psychopaths as well as introducing new topics that I never thought I'd be interested in learning about. I leave each episode a more detatched and compassionate person who now connects everything to capitalism. "It was capitalism all along." - maybe Sarah Marshall. If you're looking for someone to tell you that everything you knew about Jessica Simpson or Iran-Contra was wrong, then look no further. The chemistry and comradery bewtween Sarah and Michael make you want to be bffs, oh and they are super smart.
