Great show, but excessive giggling

by Rita7594 on Apr 22, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is a much needed show and I mostly enjoy it. A podcast about the portrayal of women in movies is a must-listen for everyone. However, the high school banter and excessive giggling makes it nearly insufferable. I wish the hosts were a little less silly.

One of my favorite podcasts. Love these two FEMINIST ICONS as they break down your fave films and how they treat their female characters.

Thank you!

I really appreciate this podcast. It’s nice to hear an examination of the roles of women in movies, particularly interesting and important in light of the way our world is sliding. It’s also made me laugh a great deal when I needed it the most. Thank you. You do good work.

Found this amazing podcast because of my love of Jamie and Jeffrey’s upgraded videos! I so much enjoy Caitlin and Jamie’s insights, they are putting all of their degrees to work. They are super smart, funny and I also really enjoy the steampunk trashing! Thank you!

A podcast by women about women solely on the topic of movies! It’s like they came up with this idea just for me (and many of my friends whom I’ve recommended it to who have also loved it)! I highly recommend it for men, women, all gender identifications, and more importantly, cinephiles. Great podcast!

Some laughs, but overall vapid

by Inglefinger on Jan 30, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

This was not as intelligent as I thought it would be. The hosts seem to be fixated with how characters look which is ironic considering the premise of the podcast. May be more appropriate for millennials.

Your brain will be smarter. Listen to women discuss women, slam on sexist nonsense, and have names. Totally hilarious good times, but he warned, you might have to rethink your love of some not-so-enlightened movies from your youth times.

I learned about this show after hearing Jamie on The Daily Zeitgeist. (She’s their best “guest” host btw) listened to it once and I was hooked. Both her and Caitlin are hilarious and consistently bring up great points. I’ve listened to every podcast about a movie I’ve seen. Keep up the great work!-straight white male 😉

Since I started listening to the Bechdel Cast I feel like I’ve learned a ton. I definitely have the Bechdel Test in my mind whenever I watch movies now. Also I apparently need to see the movie Doubt. Keep up the awesome work ladies! 5 nipples. 👍

This is a much need reprieve from the news horror parade. Now I’m happily binging on the Bechdel Cast! Thank you. It’s also satisfying to know other women hate Love Actually as much as I do. ❤️

Oh boy do I love this podcast. This hosts, the commentary on the movies, the nipple scale- all of it. The show is always hilarious and picks great movies to cover! Not to mention the guests are always hilarious and insightful. Love it and can't wait for more!

Great content, usually funny, occasionally irritating

by Gremlin1384 on Jan 02, 2018
Rating: ★★★★☆

Analyses on film from a woman's perspective. Writing as a white heterosexual cisgender man, it's really great to hear how women feel about these films I love (or hate), and I see them in a whole new light. It is horrifying how many otherwise good movies don't pass the simple requirements of the Bechdel Test. Jamie and Caitlyn’s analyses are always intelligent, and go far beyond the titular Bechdel Test into the portrayal of women in every way. I always feel enlightened by the end of an episode.Jamie and Caitlyn seem very amateurish and disorganized in their delivery and organization. I believe it is a deliberate stylistic choice, aiming for a friendly feel, but I don't care for it. I often become irritated by the style of their banter and wish they would move on to the content of the episode.

This show makes me think about movies in a whole new light

Jamie and Caitlin are hilarious. I love movies and I love feminism and I love podcasts that feature two ladies chatting about the topic at hand and whatever other tangents they go on. This pod has gotten me to watch many great movies and gotten me through a weird year. If you’re not sure, I’d recommend starting with Ghost with Nicole Byer. As a woman in STEM, I approve this podcast.

Funny at times but leaving a lot to be desired.

by Altgirlashley on Dec 05, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I enjoyed parts of this show for a few months but ultimately found too much sexualization of children and teen female characters happening and was disappointed. The show could also benefit from some more structure as it often takes 10-15 minutes just to get to talking about the topic and the hosts sometimes stop every other sentence to add something off topic. There is also some talk in the Moana episode about the character being addicted to crack or meth instead of the ocean. Do we really need to continue to portray people of color with drugs in the media? And talking about her character getting with Maui..ugh. She’s 16. The show is fine if you are looking to observe “light” feminist talk among immature LA friends but if you’re seeking strong feminist messages I would steer clear. Such a shame they grabbed this name for their show when the “test” deserves better representation, in my opinion.

Love the premise of this podcast and it has so much potential. Some episodes are decent others are god awful.I had to completely stop listening after the Twilight episode. Oh god. Did they really just say that Twilight is better than Fury Road? ... Hoping that was sarcasm I just didn't pick up on.Also surprised at how close minded the hosts are sometimes. I would like this if I was a heterosexual, white feminist but I'm not so I'll pass. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Genuinely interesting

I guess I'm more of a baby feminist than I thought, because the hosts of this podcast regularly make me think about aspects of feminism and the way women are portrayed in media. And it's funny and interesting and they are fun to virtually hang out with.

5/5 Nipz

by Jane Doe III on Sep 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

One nip for Jamie being an avid Alfred Molina-head, one fuzzy nip for Cat Facts with Caitlin, and 3 nips for the 3 degrees between the two of you - especially Caitlin's Master's degree in screenwriting that she hates to bring up. Hilarious pod that highlights problematic cinematic tropes in a genuinely fun and insightful way. Love the hosts, love the show!

I blew through the entire back catalogue in about a week after The Bechdel Cast was featured on AV Club’s Podmass and now I’m desperate for new eps! Caitlin and Jamie are hilarious, insightful and open about their lives in the most compelling way. The Titanic episode especially put me back in touch with my own adolescent film obsessions (although mine were of the Lord of the Rings variety). I’ve been mentally Bechdel-ing the movies I watch for years and having someone else to “discuss” them with (…listen to) is just the best. 5 nipples to Caitlin and Jamie!!

Found this one from when Jamie Loftus was on the Cracked Podcast and it has quickly become one of my regulars! The hosts are fun, funny, insightful, and don't seem to take themselves too seriously. I disagree with some of their thoughts, but they also frequently disagree with each other so it always seems fair. I appreciate how they have guests on that might have more expertise than them for certain movies (i.e. knowledgeable about DC or Marvel comics for superhero movies). The premise is based on the Bechdel test, but they definitely take into account how that test is a valuable but shallow test and discuss the representation of women as a whole for each movie. Overall great podcast and I hope it continues for many episodes!

by Cal Warren on Jun 04, 2017

They have some great things to say when they're talking about the movie. 12 minutes into the Mean Girls ep they haven't talked about Mean Girls yet and are instead talking about all the ways The Parent Trap passes the test. Maybe edit out the bits not related to the movie?

There's probably some kind of gender dissonance in the fact that I normally listen to Caitlin and Jamie while I'm lifting weights, but that's my podcast time, so we're stuck with it. And anyway, it's congruent with the fact that I became aware of The Bechdel Cast through a gym buddy, their producer Aristotle.This is a great show, as much for their off color jokes and weird tangents as for their film analysis. And they've introduced me to at least one good movie I'd never seen (HINT: it wasn't "Gigli." Or "Titanic."). Their guests are always interesting, and reflect a great diversity of both opinion and demographics. Oh, and they're funny. Like LOL funny. The running jokes through the episodes are very endearing, especially when it reveals that the guest of the week hasn't listened to the show very much (the nipple system, what? how many degrees?).A real gem, this one.

The best!
