I’ve been listening to this podcast for the last few years and love the commentary and energy of the hosts, with the Green Room, Ready or Not, Never Been Kissed being some of my favorite episodes. Be advised, this is not a podcast to listen to for accurate descriptions of the movie. As long as you accept that the recaps are based mostly on vibes, and it’s really about the convos between the host and the guests, you’ll have a great time. Also the pre-reads can drone on for a bit, so feel free to skip the first 5min of most episodes.
This funny sweet podcast always goes down smooth. A favorite feel-good show: love the hosts!
I became obsessed with Sarah’s point of view and ability to take pop culture subjects and break it apart leaving you deep in your emotions and relating to philosophical ideas. She is perfect on You’re Wrong About, but the addition of Alex Steed and the dialogue and nuance conversations they bring to these fantastic films is the best part of my week! PLEASE DO AMERICAN HONEY
Love this show! Hosts are awesome! Sarah you are my straight girl crush! Alex you are a true gem! When are we doing an episode on Interstellar or Arrival? Willing to add commentary as I’ve see each movie well over 20 times. :-)
Both Sarah and Alex bring so much heart and intelligence to this podcast. Their insights are often quite illuminating- took me listening to the Amadeus ep to realize I’ve loved that movie since I was a kid bc I have a difficult dad situation. Love this podcast so much and am probably very annoying to my friends bc I recommend it ALL THE TIME.
I have listened to almost every episode and have several times almost felt compelled to write in with “yes, YES!” Agreement about feelings but figured that would be too parasocial. I enjoy feeling feelings about the movies I love with y’all! Only thing, I wish the intro was shorter. Every episode I know to fast forward at least 4-6 minutes to avoid a rambling intro of random stuff. Get that dollar, I want you to succeed but please, please be succinct? It feels really rambling like someone freestyling and could use some self-editing.
I love these people and their candid convos. But WHEN are y’all going to do Ice Princess!!!!
This show is everything I want media wise, I feel so connected with Sarah and Alex. There are certain episodes I have literally listened to like 10 times at least. I could truly listen to them talk about every horror movie ever, most of which I’ll never watch, because the THEEEMMMES. They’re just wonderful <3
I love this show so much. It has brought me so much joy since I found it and laugh so hard at everything Sarah says. I feel like I relate to Sarah so strongly! As a mid thirties woman who discovered within the last year that I’m autistic I regularly feel things on the show that sound very similar to things that lead me to exploring it. I hope this finds you well!
Love you guys. Please do Ghostbusters 2016 with Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon. I mean you gotta … “safety lights are for dudes.”
I haven’t found an ep yet that didn’t teach me new things and make me feel like my gooey sweet emotions around our vast and varied media landscape aren’t as silly or inappropriate as I was told they were growing up. Sarah Marshall is a genuine sweet wonderful accepting person - I have loved her in every podcast I’ve ever heard her in. Alex Steed is a great foil for her, providing just enough of a differing viewpoint to be interesting while still being agreeable. He’s such a great example of positive masculinity. I’m so used to men (it always seems to be men) denigrating and looking down on anything they deem overly sweet or feminine that it’s really nice to hear someone male consider all viewpoints as equally valid. Their friendship carries through in every episode, which is incredibly sweet. And every guest feels carefully screened to continue the sweetness and understanding. I’m so glad I found this podcast. Sometimes I listen even if I’m not interested in the movie being discussed because their voices are so nice and their viewpoints are so expansive and accepting. This is a wonderful sweet podcast and I highly recommend it.
You Are Good never disappoints, but the Waiting for Guffman episode is next level. I listened to the episode, re-watched Guffman the same night then re-listened to this episode the next morning. Sarah and Alex always approach their work with such sincerity and Woody is absolutely gorgeous!!
First lemme say, I love this show. I look forward to it every Wednesday. However, more and more I do feel like I’m listening to a group of students who attend PCU (Hey do the movie PCU!)
The coziest podcast in town. I always get excited when a new episode comes out. The content is funny and charming. I like that there aren’t loud, interruptive ads. I subscribe to their Patreon as well, and recommend it. I haven’t seen all the movies they discuss, and you don’t need to. It’s a fun ride either way.
I love listening to Alex and Sarah talk about movies I love, or even movies someone else loves. It’s funny, thoughtful, nostalgic… one of my favorites.
Also I do really enjoy the part where Sarah summarizes the movie even if I’ve seen it a million times, v comforting
I found this podcast after listening to You’re Wrong About & then wanting to devour all of Sarah’s work, but I have come to love it in it’s own right as my favorite podcast about movies. This one lets me see what other people find and connect to in movies, lets me discover movies I never noticed, and encourages me to make space for my own relationship with movies, as messy and emotional and inexplicable as that is. Their guests are engaging, the hosts are the best, and I sincerely adore this podcast. Cannot recommend it enough!!
But about movies! This is a podcast of wonderful people being sweet while they review the movies that we love. You’ll feel heard and cared for and…GOOD.
Get ready to consider your favorite (and least favorite and everything in between) films in a new light. Emotions and Daddy are at the forefront.
The discussion space cultivated by Alex, Sarah, and Catherine in the pod is unlike any others that I have heard. I find that even if I have not seen the movie, I am greeted by a warm blanket of discussion and reflection about the impact and meaning of stories in our culture. Beautiful show, and I appreciate it immensely.
This isn’t a typical movie podcast so if that’s what you’re looking for is probably not for you. But it has made me cry (in a good way!) many times and it always makes me laugh. I hope they keep making episodes forever.
A therapeutic listen; sometimes it soothes, sometimes it stirs up uncomfortable feelings.Bonus dose of nostalgia.
oh this show is just a warm and reassuring hug every time. literally the same sensation as a weighted blanked (if weighted blankets sometimes make you cry)
Love these folks. Love their discussions. Best parasocial friendships I have! The humor, the humanity, the emotion. Love it all. Grateful for the time I’ve spent listening.
I’ve been listening to this podcast since their debut. Sarah and Alex have become parasocial besties, it’s not about the movies, I love hearing their thoughts as they discuss the cinematic selection. It’s a comfort and a joy. Oh, and Carolyn is the Daddy!
