I’ve been loving this podcast for a while, but was so excited to see the Get Over It episode. It’s such a delightfully bizarro movie and I loved it when it came out. I think I was in 8th grade, but my best friend and I would quote lines from it until the end of high school. It’s Martin Short’s funniest role, in my opinion. I’m glad to finally see someone talk about this movie
Listening to this podcast is like cuddling up in a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate on a rainy day.
I was first introduced to Sarah when she was a guest on Scam Goddess. Hearing her thoughts throughout the episode immediately made me venture over to You’re Wrong About and I’ve been working my way through the catalog of episodes ever since. All the episodes are so well researched and approach topics with an empathy that really make me reevaluate how the stories were originally presented and perceived. Plus Sarah’s voice is super soothing!
I have been a listener since the very beginning (on a different platform) but finally downloaded Apple Podcasts to leave a review. I adore this show. I love how warm, funny, empathetic, and witty Sarah and Alex (and Carolyn!! we love Carolyn!!) are. It’s so much fun hearing them and their guests give their takes on everything from the classics to the cult classics to the poorly received and everything in between. The hosts make me feel safe with them, if that makes sense. They own up to and correct any mistakes (which are rare, but as with any show, do happen occasionally) and seem to take listener feedback seriously, which is more than many popular podcasters seem to do. Sarah and Alex’s willingness to be vulnerable and the ease with which they play off each other and their guests is so engaging and makes this show special. As many other reviewers have said, it really does feel like listening to two or three of your smartest, funniest friends chatting about a movie. I love seeing them take joy in how many ways (and how deeply) movies can make you feel. Thank you guys.
I’ve been listening to this podcast since the beginning. I love love love it and I think everyone should listen to it. The hosts have good energy and they dive into every episode with lots of compelling talking points and reflections on the films they discuss. I laugh, I cry, I ponder. Highly recommend!
You Are Good is my Friday evening ritual. -Take one (1) You are Good episode -Insert earpods -Walk around your neighborhood at golden hour while listening to recaps of great 80’s horror movies, 90’s comfort movies, Don Bluth animated classics AND MORE! (highlight: their Stephen King “page to screen” episodes are god-tier) It’s the perfect cozy walking companion to slough off my week’s blue-meanies & their conversations, movie choices & guests are always lovely. Alex & Sarah are kind, smart, good people who love good movies and they, like we, and You, are also Good. In fact, they are GREAT.
Listening to smart and kind people when the world is so cruel has been a refuge. Come for the nostalgic movie choices, stay for the lights-out-at-a-slumber-party feels. DEFINITELY catch a live show when you can!
I always enjoy this show, no matter the subject, no matter the guest. Absolutely critical to my mental health.
I listen to this pod when I’m stoned and want to listen to people talk about something interesting in a low stakes way. It is perfect. Great vibes. Interesting conversations. I love it.
Ok, so I have a few movies that I consider my “background” movies and Death Becomes Her is one of them along with First Wives Club and SheDevil. Would you consider doing an episode on SheDevil?
I love all the shows in the You're Wrong About extended universe and this one is no exception! This show has really found its footing as a feelings podcast about movies and has quickly become one of my favorites. I love that they pick “popular” movies as well as movies they have strong feelings about. This is definitely a great show to listen to while doing things around the house and you don’t want to be alone with your own thoughts - it’ll feel like you’re hanging out with friends having a meaningful conversation and time will fly by.
I literally watched a movie (or a few) because they talked about it. Some for the first time after listening for almost an hour before even checking it out… worth a listen.
This podcast is so much more than a movie discussion podcast. It is interesting, intelligent, and feel good. Alex and Sarah and their numerous guests are having such a good time discussing movies which makes it so much fun to listen to but they also discuss serious issues such as trauma and problems in society with care and insight. I always laugh while listening and come away feeling like I learned something. Thank you Alex and Sarah.
I love your show so much! After listening to the Death Becomes Her episode I would like to suggest doing a show on 1989’s She-Devil starring Meryl Streep and Roseanne Barr. 5 stars!!
This is one of my favorite podcasts ever. I listen to all the shows in this family of podcasters. And it’s always so thoughtful and safe. Its like having deep midnight talks with your friends
I love Sarah, Alex and Anna, their guests and their extended staff family! It's basically free therapy but I am a Patron!
This podcast is so many things but it mostly feels like an old friend. It feels like sitting down with thoughtful, intelligent, caring, chosen family. Sarah is one of my favorite people to listen to in general but Alex is also a fast favorite and they’re both just so easy to love. SO MANY of my favorite movies are discussed and it’s just a gift. Thank you.
This is the podcast equivalent of a warm fleece blanket, your favorite candle, and a nap on a cool rainy day. So wholesome and comforting.
This podcast is such a treat, and the perfect mix of engaging storytelling, fun conversation among friends, and stimulating discussion. I have not seen most of the movies covered (and am terrified of scary movies) yet I still enjoy every single episode. Highly recommend!!!
Truly tickles the part of my liberal arts brain of over discussing and analyzing movies and imagery. It gets me through my work day and lets me be a little nicer to myself, so I’d call that a win win. Thanks for being my parasocial besties <3
I love revisiting the movies of my youth through their lens. I do not like horror movies but I will happily spend an hour listening to Sarah and Alex and guest discuss a horror movie. Sarah is a literal genius with a simile. This podcast got me through my covid isolation period and I am forever grateful for that. Highly recommend.
This podcast feels like a warm hug from a friend. The conversation is always really loving and appreciative, though not uncritical, and it’s been a fun way to revisit movies I love.
This is the podcast I save for the weekends. It’s my special podcast that needs my full attention! Love the inclusivity, love the movies they talk about and loved the talk about Splash and mermaids. I want to be a mermaid now!
Thank you for your heartfelt review of the Little Mermaid. It’s my favorite “old” Disney movie, and I had started to feel bad for liking it—thinking Ariel gave up her voice for a guy! How anti-feminist! But no, she made a Faustian deal to get her true wish, to see a new world. It was so refreshing to listen to the story told by people who truly love it.
I found the podcast through listening to Sarah’s other podcast, You’re Wrong About, I think she is one of the funniest people! I work super long 10 hour shifts and I pretty much always need to have something in the background other wise I literally wanna die but I can say that many many times Sarah has been the thing that allows me to keep going and resist the temptation to leave work early (everyday). Alex is fun too, and I love hearing his takes! The Rosemary’s Baby episode where Sarah breaks into song at one point fully belting “I MET HIM AT THE CANDYYYY STOREEEEEE” referring to satan literally had me smiling to my myself and holding in my laughter at work. Love love love the show!!
I love YWA. This podcast is amazing. It always makes my day. There are some movies I haven’t gotten the chance to see but know about because of this podcast. As well some movies I love and I get to remember why I love the movie. Sarah is my hero and I love her. Alex is the greatest and makes everything better.
