No   (1/5)

Please don’t bring back the “Throwing Shade” hosts. They made more comments about people’s appearance than they did on giving insights to the crime doc. I was excited to listen to this and even waited until I was done watching the series but turned it off after five minutes. Definitely not Netflix level quality.


The Staircase   (1/5)

The Staircase episode is the only one I will listen to. It was so poorly done - the hosts don't know what they're talking about and misstate things from the get-go. Did they do any research? Did they watch the series, or did they talk through the entire thing and catch things here and there? Really just a waste of time.


The Staircase   (5/5)

Pure tea filth ❤️


The Staircase   (1/5)

Horrible hosts!! Don’t waste your time on this one. Spent most of the podcast discussing sexuality instead of all the interesting facts about the case.


A great show   (5/5)

A great show but do an episode on Mr.Bell’s family.


Awful interviewer   (1/5)

How many times can we say “like” in one sentence? Completely vapid interviewer who admits to wanting to join a sex cult.


Host   (1/5)

What is the use of LIKE in the interview process. I am hearing this on many podcasts . She can’t talk or ask questions with out saying like.


Seems like it could be good   (1/5)

Great idea, terrible host.


Wow!   (5/5)

Such a good podcast! A really fun listen. I blew through these episodes so fast. It's addictive! Totally binge worthy


No...   (1/5)

Really... I feel you only did a Kpop episode because it is popular and you wanted listens. I think you missed the whole reason BTS is breaking out at the moment. Under the guidance of PD Bang and the other Big Hit Producers, the members of BTS are participating in the writing and creation of their music. If you listen to Namjoon speak, you realize that they understand the importance of their platform to address deeper issues than just a Catchy tune with 7 English words in it. And there are no mediocre vocals in BTS. The problem with American Hip Hop music is that women cannot listen to it without hearing sexist slurs and disrespectful language. I have no problem with cursing, but I am nobodies b&:”h or Ho... This episode was condescending. Do better...


Just brilliant   (5/5)

That’s all


Amazing!!!   (5/5)

Loooove 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽


Excellent content   (5/5)

Follow ups with the minds responsible for excellent documentaries.


Loved The Keepers interview!   (5/5)

It was fantastic to re-visit The Keepers with the amazing “partnership” of Ryan White & Jean Wehner. Both are so inspiring! Moved me to tears when Jean gave “advice” to survivors. Highly recommend this to anyone who watched The Keepers. Also, really enjoyed hearing from Gemma at the end. An amazing lady, too!


like like like   (2/5)

How can a professional interviewer use the word ‘like’ so frequently and seemingly be completely unaware of it? Makes the podcast difficult to listen to.


Very difficult to get past the...   (3/5)

First, I am far from perfect and quite certainly would be highly criticized if I attempted to be a professional voice talent tasked with interviewing, however I’m not pursuing nor wish to be one. In this day and age I do not want to be over critical or mean any insensitivity of the host, but it is very difficult, if not impossible to get past her speech habits during the interviews. Even though I am of a different generation, the overuse of the word ‘like’ and repeating statements or questions in the same breath is off-putting and distracting. This is not a live podcast, so it would be easy to correct, make a more professional and listenable. #My2Cents


Can it be true?   (5/5)

Yes, yes it can. Excited to dig into even more jaw-dropping details behind docs like Wild Wild Country.


Very cool.   (5/5)

Woahhh... where has this been all my life?! Every time I watch a Netflix documentary I end up staying up all night searching for stuff on google and commenting on forums. This is such a game changer! Woohoo!


Finally!   (5/5)

I’m so glad Netflix has entered the podcast world. When I’m not watching an interesting doc on Netflix, I’m listening to a podcasts so now Netflix is entering into my world just a little bit more. Keep them coming!!


I’ve been WAITING for this   (5/5)

Netflix is finally in the podcast game!?


really great way to follow up on great docs   (5/5)

awesome idea, executed beautifully


Yessss   (5/5)

So here for a podcast like this! And it’s so fascinating and well-done!


great conversations about great shows/films!   (5/5)

I've been an avid Netflix user since the good ole days of mailing out DVD's. As an avid podcast listener, I'm excited to be able to consume conversations about their shows!


Netflix to go!   (5/5)

Interested to see what Netflix does with a podcast. Will be a great way to get my documentary fix on the go!


Very exciting   (5/5)

Netflix gets into the podcast game!? Makes sense to me—they are the masters of the true crime narrative. Very exciting, subscribed, as they are known for quality.
