During what should’ve been Roe v. Wade’s 51st birthday week, Sarah and reproductive health policy reporter Megan Burbank take a look at the movement, decades in the making, to tear down abortion rights in America, starting with the hypocrisy at its root.

her constant interruption, moaning "uhm hum" and over the top laughing really made it impossible to listen more than 5 minutes... what a shame

I find the topics to be quite interesting, but the hosts' flippant attitudes and comments grind on me after about 15 minutes.

It's been great listening to yoy Mike. I'm sad but I understand and look forward to hearing about all the great things you're doing with your life. Your chemistry with Sarah is like no other and I have learned so much from your shows. I just discovered your show about 1 year ago and have been binging since. Looking forward for what's to come Sarah!

People would rather continue believing a false narrative rather than admit they’ve had the wool pulled over their eyes. I think back to this comment made on Twitter a few years ago: i still think my favourite thing that's ever happened to me on the internet is the time a guy said "people change their minds when you show them facts" and I said "actually studies show that's not true" and linked TWO sources and he said yeah well I still think it works'

Halfway through and I'm forgetting how this connects to the OJ Simpson trial. We've spent half an hour talking about how the DeLorean Empire went under. And Margaret Thatcher... This is my second listen through of the whole OJ (AND DOUBLE MURDER) saga on this podcast. Even though there's obviously way too much Paula content, this so far has seemed like the most distant tangent. Although I'm only halfway through.. again.

"You're Wrong About" is an exceptional podcast that delves deep into historical events and pop culture phenomena, dissecting the myths and misconceptions that often surround them. The hosts, Michael Hobbes and Sarah Marshall, bring a unique blend of wit, research, and empathy to each episode, creating a compelling narrative that challenges preconceived notions. https://www.homify.co.uk/professionals/9515002/elite-printing-solution What sets this podcast apart is the dedication to thorough research. The hosts go beyond surface-level information, unearthing overlooked details and providing a nuanced perspective on the topics they cover. The storytelling is both engaging and thought-provoking, making it accessible to a wide audience. https://www.fixerhub.com/manchester-uk/professional-service/elite-printing-solution

I've been an avid listener of "You're Wrong About" for quite some time now, and I must say it's one of the most engaging and informative podcasts I've come across. The hosts, Michael and Sarah, have a remarkable ability to dissect and debunk popular misconceptions and historical events. Their meticulous research and thorough analysis make even the most complex topics accessible to a wide audience. https://www.adlocalpages.com/brooklyn-ny/business-professional-services/nyc-packaging-solution What I appreciate most about the podcast is their commitment to presenting the facts, even when it means challenging commonly held beliefs. This approach is refreshing in an era where misinformation can spread so easily. It's not just about correcting the record but also understanding the broader context of why certain myths persist and the impact they have on society. https://www.localstar.org/nyc-packaging-solution
