This podcast is a joy! Itâs quickly become one of my favorites.
Their Snow White podcast had me dying and Iâve been hooked ever since!! Absolutely love this podcast â¤ï¸
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.
I'm a new listener who's only a few episodes in but I'm really enjoying the discussions so far and the great list of film reviews I've got ahead of me.
Jamie and Caitlin are honestly so funny and all their guests are great too. Just a well done podcast all around.
This podcast is amazing. I listen to them all the time on my commute to and from school. They are hilarious and so very smart. I adore Kaitlin and Jamie and I wish they were my bffs
A definite 5 nipple cast every episode. Two favorite hosts in podcasting, hilarious every time.
This funny and informative podcast provides great insight into the representationof women in movies that isn't talked about enough.
One of my favorite podcasts. Love these two FEMINIST ICONS as they break down your fave films and how they treat their female characters.
Not only is this podcast hilarious and progressive, itâs also made me a better movie viewer! â¤ï¸
Fun podcast, I love to listen while I drive.
I really appreciate this podcast. Itâs 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. Itâs 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 Jeffreyâs upgraded videos! I so much enjoy Caitlin and Jamieâs 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!
Hilarious and informative for a guy like me
This show is fantastic. I love the way the girls interact with each other, and I appreciate looking at these movies from a different angle. Keep it up ladies!
A podcast by women about women solely on the topic of movies! Itâs like they came up with this idea just for me (and many of my friends whom Iâve recommended it to who have also loved it)! I highly recommend it for men, women, all gender identifications, and more importantly, cinephiles. Great podcast!
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.
Me: You should listen to this. It is funny and thoughtful.Other female who is named M. Street: Ok.Five nipples.It is so valuable to discuss how what movies present to the world and what they imply about cultural values and how society views people.
Funny and informative. Good for a man to listen to.
As a #WomanInStem, this podcast is a blessed break from my days surrounded by completely un-muzzled men. These women are both legit #FeministIcons, and I cannot endorse them highly enough.
I learned about this show after hearing Jamie on The Daily Zeitgeist. (Sheâs their best âguestâ host btw) listened to it once and I was hooked. Both her and Caitlin are hilarious and consistently bring up great points. Iâve listened to every podcast about a movie Iâve seen. Keep up the great work!-straight white male ð
Since I started listening to the Bechdel Cast I feel like Iâve 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. ð
This is a much need reprieve from the news horror parade. Now Iâm happily binging on the Bechdel Cast! Thank you. Itâs also satisfying to know other women hate Love Actually as much as I do. â¤ï¸
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!
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 Caitlynâs 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.
I'm totally addicted to this show and the hosts hilarious commentary on feminist icons. I'm hoping y'all do Ghostbusters sometime soon!
Let me say this in a way that potential listeners from the distant future will understand: Dis ð§ is âï¸ð¥, if ya wanna ð¤ how 2B a gr8 ð¬ð, take ðs & ð ðð about ð¨ð»ð±ð»ââï¸ð§ð», itâs been done. ð¤
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 youâre not sure, Iâd recommend starting with Ghost with Nicole Byer. As a woman in STEM, I approve this podcast.
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. Sheâs 16. The show is fine if you are looking to observe âlightâ feminist talk among immature LA friends but if youâre seeking strong feminist messages I would steer clear. Such a shame they grabbed this name for their show when the âtestâ deserves better representation, in my opinion.
I love this show so much I give it a rating of 8 out of 5 nipples.
Got hooked immediately! I hope they do Practical Magic soon!
Where has this been all my life?! Heard about it on The Daily Zeitgeist, now my podcast life will never be the same ððð keep being awesome you guys!
Thanks ladies for making a podcast that talks about real issues but in a fun delightful way. Also thank you for raising my appreciation for Alfred Molina.
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. ð¤·ð»ââï¸
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.
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 Clubâs Podmass and now Iâm 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). Iâve been mentally Bechdel-ing the movies I watch for years and having someone else to âdiscussâ them with (â¦listen to) is just the best. 5 nipples to Caitlin and Jamie!!
This podcast cured my mansplaining and blinded my male gaze. Now I'm so woke i've got insomnia.
Got here by way of Aparna. Stayed because it's hilarious. Five stars.
Smart women talking about how the media portrays them. Honest, visceral and extremely funny. I blew through the back catalog and wait impatiently for the new episodes. I love these ladies and you will too. 5 nips!
Love this podcast! Now every time I watch a movie I think about the Bechdel test, and I don't even have a masters degree in screenwriting!!
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!
maybe probably (definitely) my favorite podcast around. kinda obsessively went back and redownloaded all the episodes and after catching up it's still as easy to enjoy and listen to as ever. i've laughed so much this past week so thank you.p.s. f*ck steampunk
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 guy who gave this two stars wrote some the the most beautiful words I've ever read, also.
Jamie and Caitlin are cooler than a polar bear's toenails. This podcast is funny, fun, and fundamental. A+
