ngl that comment about the new anne of green gables was a bit rude, sometimes they hate on shows/movies and most of the time it turns out they haven't even watched it, and I wish they would stop doing that, it just rubs me the wrong way

It's not a bad movie but people really overrate it I think. everything she does revolves around men. why are (in general) people so offended when a woman cares about men in a romantic sense (see: the misogynistic criticism the other princesses have gotten) but a familial one is fine?

glad to have identified when the newest ... host ... is on board. ive tried to listen to various episodes and disappointed the quality has severely diminished. claiming to be open minded and against certain mindsets but not happening. sorry samantha, too much personal agenda from you. i dont mind opinion(s) but personal agendas is a different thing altogether. too bad as some of the newer topics look like they would have been cool.

Bit disappointed in this episode. l guess i hoped for a discussion in more detail regarding the villians. At times, I felt like i just got a list of names. Especially when one of the hosts, i forget which, knocked down one of the movies, Suicide Squad, then prodeeded to emphasize how they hadn't seen the movie??? Yes, you might have hated it but comments about knowing you couldn't get two hours of your life back if you had watched it...? not cool. That's the movie i remember mentioned, but i think there were more. ugh. i listened to the end of the episode.... an hour + advertising taken from me too. seems like you should go lose an hour of your life.

I'm disappointed that they didn't mention the female US soccer team and their fight for equal pay.

Sound is bad. Gave it a chance because it's interesting, but I can't listen to it.

I think it's safe to say sisters can make you happier. Mine can drive me up the damn wall sometimes but I wouldn't want to do life without them.

Thank you for this episode! I am ashamed to live in Georgia. These laws are horrible and so many people don't understand how much these laws hurt women in exchange for something that is considered a parasite.

Just listened to this while driving home.... And promptly re-watched Gone Girl upon arrival home :)

couldn't listen to the whole podcast. When one host turns something into a personal platform and the other host becomes unimportant or not "there", it's a waste of time to listen. missed the old hosts on this episode... hopefully the rest of the episodes aren't like this.

if you want to watch ladys kicking butt granted all cis and white and mostly dudes but with amazing heart I suggest critical role. it is long and intimidating to get into but I promise it is worth it. you dont have to start with campaign 1, I started at the beginning of 2 and it is amazing story telling. there is a man who plays a woman and he dies a great job, there are 2 women who regularly play and one that comes in and out. there is an enby npc. just a great show all around.

This podcast makes so much sense! Sexism is so big in this world and this podcast just puts it down the garbage disposal!!!

I'm studying healthcare in college, and I think a big part of this lack of access to these pills is that it causes clinics and hospitals that provide this pill, only in-person, to lose money. they would rather have that money than provide this pill with easier access.
