One of my fav podcasts
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!

Goodness! It’s great! The goods, even!
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.

All Bimbos welcome here
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!

Favorite Podcast Ever
I always enjoy this show, no matter the subject, no matter the guest. Absolutely critical to my mental health.

So good for relaxing
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.

LOVE this show!
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?

A real treat
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.

Thank you
Just thank you.

Great Show - beginning to end
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.

My favorite podcast
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.

Eve lindley!
I watched pose so I could see Eve! ✨💕🥹 the show is amazing tho lol! Go Eve! ❤️

Movie Suggestion!
I would love to hear the commentary for Don’t Look Up. Please, oh please!

I am soooo good
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!!

You my friend are good.
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

My healthiest and most fulfilling parasocial relationship
I love Sarah, Alex and Anna, their guests and their extended staff family! It's basically free therapy but I am a Patron!

Like a warm hug
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.

A hug of a podcast
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.

Best Movie Podcast (and podcast in general)
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!!!

Like taking an college movie class with your gbfs
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

Just great
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.

A delight
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.

Coziest podcast around
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!

Love you mean it
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.

Sarah is my patron saint
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!!

Absolute gem
Favorite pod out there, along with YWA obvi

Love this podcast
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.

Great way to revisit movies that you love
Sarah is brilliant and Alex complements her nicely, for the most part. I like to listen to episodes for movies that I’ve seen at least a month prior (there’s way too much plot summary if you just watched the movie yesterday, and I think it’s generally more fun to use the podcast to refresh your memory). Listen first to the episodes of movies you’ve loved as a child or teenager, while watching some films that you’ve always meant to see, and then circle back to the podcast for newly watched stuff after some time has passed. Don’t listen to episodes on media that you don’t have good vibes towards, because this podcast is all about seeing the good in movies, so your criticisms and negative experiences will mostly not be validated, or will only be validated in brief caveats (like, Charlie’s Angels is really lovely except for all of the brown/black/yellowface lol!). If anyone involved in the show reads this review, please think through whether or not a “feelings podcast about movies” really needs to attempt to be so uniformly positive. Ratatouille was a similarly painful experience where the guest no longer liked the movie on her most recent viewing and basically no one knew what to do with that. Analyzing why something doesn’t work or hold up can actually be really interesting but the hosts had blinders on and kind of kept doing the toxic positivity show anyway even though it was bizarrely disconnected from the guests experience. Along those same lines, listening to Alex call season one of And Just Like That lovely made me want to claw my own eyes out and it made me reconsider my Patreon subscription but I ultimately came back. Only a white man who hadn’t really seen SATC could straightforwardly enjoy AJLT. Everyone else was cringing through the whole thing. But when it’s good, and it’s for a movie that you love, it’s good… so I’m still giving it 5 stars. Skip episodes liberally to find the gems.

I don’t like movies
I don’t like movies, and yet I love this podcast

Feelings
I love this show. It’s full of authentic conversations about humans dealing with their feelings. Been listening since it was Why Are Dads? It’s simply one of the best podcasts out there 💕
