The Bechdel Cast is a great show. Full stop. Itâs funny, smart, and (unfortunately) very timely. I look forward to each episode. Thank you for the great show!
This is one of the best and most important podcasts out there. Always a good 1-1.5 hour listenting to the Caitlin and Jamie.
The world does not deserve these brilliant creators.
Love this pod! Caitlin and Jamie are goddesses!!
Always brightens my week when a new ep pops up. 10/10 would listen again (and again and again)
I got hooked on this amazing podcast with the Phantom of the opera episode and swiftly proceeded to binge all of their episodes. Jamie (aka little Zam) and Caitlin (aka Latin Dancer UTI) are both hilarious and insightful when analyzing the representation of women in film. So if you want to become a woke AF Feminist Icon/Queer Icon etc get to listening now ð
Hilarious and insightful at the same time. It's great to revisit favorite films and get a new perspective on them.
I love this podcast. I canât watch movies anymore without thinking about how it would fare on an episode of this podcast. Itâs hilarious and insightful and youâll love it.
A good podcast by good people. I listen to them on my way to work and they always make me laugh. If there's a problem it's that I don't watch movies that much so I'm not always keyed in to what they're talking about sometimes. But that's on my end. Listen to the show ok
I wish the hosts liked movies. They donât seem to very much for hosting a podcast about movies. More thought and preparation could go into the show to make it 5 stars. Like actually watching the movie.
Iâm in love with how these women express their thoughts and the depth of their criticism. They make me think - itâs like taking a fun, free, 300-level feminist class.
These two ladies are nice. At least one of them has a tattoo that looks like a worm. They are funny.
Canât wait for new episodes
This podcast is everything I never knew I needed! For anyone who loves movies, analysis, and women.
Insightful, funny and always entertainingâthis is my go to choice when bouncing my baby girl to sleep at 4 AM
I like the premise, the guests, and the chemistry between the hosts. I like most of the movies they watch. I agree with them politically. I empathize with their backgrounds. And yet, this podcast is just meh. Iâve tried, I really have. Iâve listened to every episode, hoping for better. It bothers me, however, that one of the cohosts doesnât like movies, and she doesnât like them to the point that she canât even be bothered to actually watch the movie discussed - and she admits it! If you want your critique to be taken seriously, you need to do your homework. These are purporting to offer insight into the insidious nature of patriarchy, but their intellectual laziness just hurts us all.
I love this show because they talk about gender stuff without it being depressing. A lot of feminist works will get you down because it makes you sad how things are unfair and stuff, but this show is usually a fanciful romp! I am not a big movie person at all but they talk about all the movies from my childhood so I've actually seen them and it's so funny!! *Fake air horn noise* my favorite episodes are Snow White and The Notebook. The worst episode is probably Gigli with Josh Fadem. I hate that guy; he needs to shut up so bad. I think that episode probably didn't even pass the Bechdel test because that jerkoff man couldn't keep his mouth shut for one second. Basically, you should hate-listen to the Gigli episode to understand why we need feminist podcasts like this in the first place. P.S. Moana is life.
I was scrolling through comments and was so distressed to see such negative ones, though Iâm sure something as incredible as this podcast must be somewhat controversial. Caitlyn and Jamie are amazingly intelligent and SO funny and this podcast is my favorite ever. Thursdayâs have become a moment of excitement in my week just waiting for the next bechdel cast episode, and in my want for more episodes, Iâve started to base the movies I watch purely on which have an episode dedicated to them ð. This podcast makes me cry laugh on the bus and brings me pure joy. Thank you SO MUCH Caitlyn and Jamie for all the happiness you bring into our lives. EVERYONE SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST!!!
This podcast is great!! Yâall should do a mean girls episode ð
I have terrible anxiety and I donât sleep well I love this show but I also love having episodes Iâve heard on to go to sleep the ladies arenât triggering their guests are always funny (always more Laci always more) and they donât get so dark I have nightmares. Look I have a masters in podcasts and this one is like the titanic of podcasts 5 stars! And eight cat nipples!
Only slightly less difficult to listen to than Culture Kings and on a par with the shrill and poorly organized mess Stuff You Missed in History Class has become.
Theyâre constantly misremembering basic things from the movies they cover so whatâs even the point the of listening? Itâs hard to take any kind of meaningful analysis they offer seriously when they donât care enough to pay basic attention the the ONE movie theyâre suppose to discuss for an hour.
Some of the episodes it takes way too long for them to talk about the movie. Like the men in black episode Iâm 15 minutes into it and they still havenât talked about the movie yet.
Hands down the best podcast for feminist discourse, Alfred Molina love, steampunk shade and unabashed love for the movie Titanic. These women are F U N N Y. Truly a breath of fresh air in the otherwise swampy bog that is 2018.
I love this podcast. Itâs like a guided talk with my friends about the good, bad and absurd crap we talk about. These ladies are awful and great in all the best ways, raunchy, fun, gross and really intelligent.
I have doubts Sister, I have such doubts
I love it but I wish they did a little editing. I usually skip to 15-20 minutes in because it takes them that long to get to the movie discussion...then I check out with 20 minutes left because of major digressions from the topic. But I do like the actual movie analysis and discussion, esp when the guest is on point.
Because of this podcast I can finally feel good about hating movies that have historically been favorites - as they donât represent me but the white male patriarchy. Keep rocking and rollin yâall. This is my favorite!!
I heard about this podcast on an ad on the podcast Committed. Great ad, got me to want to listen. But they only said the name once, maybe twice. And itâs a tricky name. It took me a few listens to get it. You need to repeat the name and spell it!! Make it easier to find. Thatâs my tip :)
This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. Itâs so smart and funny - exactly what we all need in 2018.
Eye-opening - and lots of fun!
Just found it and am catching up on back episodes. Very funny. And somehow they find a guest for each episode that fits in seamlessly with the.
So happy that these ladies are now on the Hey Sluts, Whatâs Up Network! Well deserved and now one of my new favorite shows to listen to while I smash the patriarchy!
I recently stared to listen to podcast and sooo glad I came across this one. Iâm a filmmaker myself and happy to hear that more women are talking about our representation in films. Itâs a great listen after a long day at work! Thnxx ladies !
Caitlin and Jamie provide both nuanced and hilarious commentary. Their conversations have lead me to think critically about the way my fave movies present women and shaped my ideas of womanhood. Spoiler alert: most of my classics donât age well. The guests are also always great and pick some good movies. Itâs always a good thing when a new ep pops up in my feed.
Love the show! Please consider doing more foreign films; maybe something by Miyazaki?? His films are known for female representation. âSpirited Awayâ and âPrincess Mononokeâ would both pass Iâm sure.
I could listen to nothing but this podcast and feel complete.
I really wanted to like this but it is honestly the most annoying podcast I have ever listened to... donât waste your time ð
My absolute FAVORITE podcast.
The only problem I have with this podcast is "Do I listen to the new episodes or binge-listen all the old ones?"It's really a treasure. It's about fighting the patriarchy, but also very cheerful and really hopeful - a hard balance to strike!
Iâm not the only 40 year old gay man that loves your show! You should do the 1993 remake on La Femme Nikita, âPoint of No Returnâ. Itâs such fantastic trash and would make a nice follow up to âSingle White Femaleâ. Thanks!
I started one just to see and couldnât stop. Even if I donât know the movie, I always find myself enchanted and laughing with these ladies.
The hosts are fun and casual in their discussions, the conversation is smart and insightful, and the production values are top-notch. I appreciate that they put out episodes on a regular schedule and that they cover such a broad mix of moveis -- blockblusters, cult classics, "women's" films, etc. I especially enjoy looking back at movies I saw 20 years ago but haven't thoguht much about since.
I really love this podcast, but I can not handle eating on podcasts. Your voice is IN MY EARS. Eat before please, I suffer from misophonia, but despite that nobody likes smacking and chewing in their ear. Itâs about professionalism. I really wish I could listen to this podcast.
I have embarrassed myself in front of my co-workers while listening to this podcast more than any other, simply because Jamie and Caitlin are the type of funny that makes it impossible to hold laughter in. Theyâre humour and wit are just the best thing ever. Itâs a total joy to hear movies picked apart in such an intelligent and thought provoking way, I feel that they are contributing so much to the enlightenment of the masses, the movement that finally allows women to free themselves of the constraints society has put on them, all while almost making me pee from laughter. So thanks Caitlin and Jamie, I hope you continue doing this podcast for many years so that I can enjoy it! Ps I secretly wish I could someday do an episode with them.
This is the worst podcast. They do not really talk about reason this podcast was made.
This podcast is so good. Itâs serious, but also soooo funny and great. Thank you for doing this, Caitlin & Jamie!
I feel liked yelling, âRIGHT?!â every time these women make any point. Itâs just so good.
I had to downgrade my rating. How have people not seen Jumanji and Jurassic Park prior to recording an episode about them? These are classic movies...My kids have seen them many times and they're 11 and 18. It would be much better if this show were recorded by people who actually enjoy movies. As it stands, it's just occasionally funny. The episodes where the hosts have actually watched the movie growing up at some point are the best ones. I REALLY like the premise, but ladies please choose movies you've seen and maybe the host who admits she doesn't watch movies can be....replaced? I'm sorry, I did try to like it.
...and itâs pretty good considering no one on the podcast has a masterâs degree in screenwriting or has seen the movie âDoubtâ. ð
