On the Ted Bundy podcast ...... âI think his anger was rooted in his whitenessâ what sort of nonsensical garbage is this? Ted Bundy was a psychopathic serial killer, but what we are supposed to be taking away from his horrific behavior is that it was rooted in his whiteness? To be honest Iâm a little bit surprised that anybody could look at the Ted Bundy case and come up with the theory that it was all spurred on by his skin color, especially when you consider the fact that all of his victims were white.
In the episode about the Ted Bundy tapes, the host literally only talked about Bundyâs âwhite privilegeâ. I understand that it was important, but I want more of the information on the tapes and interviews than the way that he was treated
Some are really good, some are really bad. The American Vandal episode was so stupid. They interviewed the fake documentary film makers like they were real people and I cringed throughout the 5 minutes I listened to.
They inject it into everything. I get that the entertainment industry is primarily liberal, but letâs leave the identity politics out of the places where it doesnât belong. You donât need a âsocial justiceâ journalist injecting âwhite male privilegeâ into Ted Bundyâs recent doc. How about we talk about proven things that coincide with the content of the doc? Talk about how and why bite marks have recently been proven to be junk science. Talk about the strange phenomena of women romantically interested in this creep despite the evidence. What a let-down that we canât get away from the minorityâs political views even in our entertainment anymore.
Im listening to the interview with the man who interviewed Bundy, and itâs absolutely true about his privilege but a lot of that is also due to being a sociopath l know because is was married to one for 2 yrs and dating for 3 yrs. he was Native American and Mexican American. These types of people know how to charm people, they know what to say. These people are so far into their mental issues they really believe their lies. Mine tried to kill me when I was 4 months pregnant and they go into an almost robotic mode, their voice changes their eyes become black bottomless pools. I could tell when he was he was about to change into sociopath mode..... whatâs scary I can see the exact same change with trump...
I have watched the Staircase and think it was very well done so well. I was very anxious to listen to the Podcast anticipating getting some great insights into the story, the process or other aspects of the production.I was totally taken back by the juvenile behavior of the two hosts. I think they thought the podcast was focused on how funny and clever they thought they could be rather than The Staircase itself. They were neither. This was the first Netflix podcast I have listened to. It will be the last if they are all hosted by these two. I hope not.
This pod almost always leaves me wanting more. I love the idea but the execution isnât consistent. Of course different guests critiquing various shows. I just didnât find them as credible, knowledgeable or reliable as I hoped. For example, in discussion of Making a Murderer, the guests clearly hadnât seen Rebutting a Murderer, a riveting pod that shows how the convicted two are actually incredibly guilty. I would have liked to have heard the guests discussing both. I will still listen bc Iâm a podcast addict.
Loved Making a Murderer and the guestsâ input- Especially Phoebe Judge. The host, Dan Taberski, was absolutely dreadful! He sounded unintelligent, unprepared and completely embarrassing. Too bad to waste such a great series, guests and discussion with this guy.
Uninformed and blathering
Not what I was expecting from an outfit like Netflix. Production values are low and the host is unfortunately subpar. I couldn't make it through a single episode. People are making better quality podasts in their bedroom closets.
Hey Netflix,A regular host with rotating guests analyzing and commenting on shows would go over a lot better then this hodgepodge. Not what I was expecting. So dissatisfied.
Why the gay references .., who cares. Too many -not funny- jokes
I love Netflix and was excited to hear some commentary pertaining to the Netflix original series the Staircase that was so enthralling. I was completely confused as to the purpose of this podcast. The commentators had absolutely none of the facts correct about the case and made the statement that Michael Peterson had adopted Margret and Martha after the death of their mother in Germany. ( the girls were never adopted formally by Mr. Peterson allowing Mr Peterson to collect support on their behalf from the federal government.) Michael and Patricia Peterson had actually placed the girls with another family at one point because the arrangement was not working out. There are so many factual issues that they just completely confused and I was having a hard time distinguishing jokes from factual commentary. The two hosts were pleasant and interesting but what was the point of this podcast?
First of all there already is a documentary podcast that has been much longer than this one called Sup Doc. They basically stole this idea from them and just applied it to Netflix docs. If you want to hear a great podcast devoted to docs where the guests are interesting and the conversation is funny and enlightening listen to Sup Doc.
I loved the documentary, and this podcast was interesting... but the interviewer sounds like a middle school girl. Every other word is âlikeâ... âshe was likeâ âI was likeâ I wanted to fast forward through the interviewer
I was interested in this podcast until I heard the Evil Genius episode. In particular the opening recap. It was so disrespectful of those who were killed or harmed in this incident.
I love watching great documentaries and Netflix is doing a great job. After seeing the videos it is nice to hear the behind the scenes information in the podcast. After watching the documentary on medical devices I would love to see one on the Gardasil vaccine and vaccine safety in general. They seem to be I. They seem to be in the same situation with the FDA as medical devices. With a daughter permanently disabled because of the Gardasil vaccine, which also had very little clinical testing, I think people would be so surprised to find out that pharmaceutical companies can not be help liable for vaccine injuries.
Iâm here for it. Wild Wild Country was really good! Excellent per usual, Netflix.
Disappointed that politics are so bold in The Staircase podcast. Be who you want to be, but I turned the podcast on to listen to a discussion of the show not to hear about politics. Very disappointed and I turned it off after 10 minutes.
After watching The Staircase, I was excited to listen to this podcast to get more information and background on the series, case, families and people involved, etc. What Netflix decided to produce instead was absolute garbage tabloid talk given by hosts that were into themselves and things not related to the show at all. Absolutely terrible.
I'm so disappointed. I've listened to the episodes about two of my favorite shows (The Staircase and WIld Wild Country) and wish I hadn't. They provided no new information, no interesting behind-the-scenes detail, not even any interesting gossip. The Wild Wild Country episode, which interviewed the filmmakers, consisted entirely of predictable questions and predictable answers. The Staircase episode just gave us two podcaster talking heads, one of whom admitted he hadn't even finished watching the series, but no one with an informed perspective.Netflix, surely you can do better than this. I hope so - two of my very favorite interviewers are coming up as guest hosts and it will be a crying shame if you waste their talents as well.
Was looking forward to a âpost podcastâ re: Netflixâs incredible documentaries/series! However, I simply cannot listen to a pseudo-host/interviewer, who uses the word âlikeâ so frequently..ð End result being: OBV lack of professionalism, etc., along with attempted ânon-comedic reliefâ &or satire, which I assume is what they are trying to encapsulate? Uh, NOT! DEF not enough research done, not humorous, ESP when discussing true crime cases, which must deeply disrespect/insult the families involved...very disappointing..ð
I love the idea behind this podcast, but as someone who has followed the Michael Peterson case for years (I lived in Durham until 2010 and am a huge true crime nerd), Iâm really disappointed listening to this episode with the Throwing Shade hosts. Whatâs tough is that theyâre discussing their opinions about seeing the series once without doing any other research (or so it sounds) or discussing the specifics left out of the series. My recommendation to Netflix is to hire forensic or true crime experts, criminal defense attorneys, SOMETHING for the post-game podcast rather than comedians. It wasnât funny and what I was left with at the end of the series was a ton of questions, not a need to make fun of it.
I wanted to like this podcast but Iâll never listen again thanks to the moronic hosts, who sound much dumber on radio than they might in real life. Why does every host sound like heâs just gotten out of high school and is chewing gum? Itâs amazing to listen to seasoned hosts with some radio experience and vocal training compared to the horrible, squeaky and idiotic voices and questions thrown out by 90% of whatâs clearly a millennial invasion of podcasts. Fire the hosts and get some intelligent people to replace them.
Please donât bring back the âThrowing Shadeâ hosts. They made more comments about peopleâs appearance than they did on giving insights to the crime doc. I was excited to listen to this and even waited until I was done watching the series but turned it off after five minutes. Definitely not Netflix level quality.
The Staircase episode is the only one I will listen to. It was so poorly done - the hosts don't know what they're talking about and misstate things from the get-go. Did they do any research? Did they watch the series, or did they talk through the entire thing and catch things here and there? Really just a waste of time.
Pure tea filth â¤ï¸
Horrible hosts!! Donât waste your time on this one. Spent most of the podcast discussing sexuality instead of all the interesting facts about the case.
Just liberal propaganda.
A great show but do an episode on Mr.Bellâs family.
How many times can we say âlikeâ in one sentence? Completely vapid interviewer who admits to wanting to join a sex cult.
What is the use of LIKE in the interview process. I am hearing this on many podcasts . She canât talk or ask questions with out saying like.
Great idea, terrible host.
Such a good podcast! A really fun listen. I blew through these episodes so fast. It's addictive! Totally binge worthy
Really... I feel you only did a Kpop episode because it is popular and you wanted listens. I think you missed the whole reason BTS is breaking out at the moment. Under the guidance of PD Bang and the other Big Hit Producers, the members of BTS are participating in the writing and creation of their music. If you listen to Namjoon speak, you realize that they understand the importance of their platform to address deeper issues than just a Catchy tune with 7 English words in it. And there are no mediocre vocals in BTS.The problem with American Hip Hop music is that women cannot listen to it without hearing sexist slurs and disrespectful language. I have no problem with cursing, but I am nobodies b&:âh or Ho... This episode was condescending. Do better...
Follow ups with the minds responsible for excellent documentaries.
It was fantastic to re-visit The Keepers with the amazing âpartnershipâ of Ryan White & Jean Wehner. Both are so inspiring! Moved me to tears when Jean gave âadviceâ to survivors. Highly recommend this to anyone who watched The Keepers. Also, really enjoyed hearing from Gemma at the end. An amazing lady, too!
How can a professional interviewer use the word âlikeâ so frequently and seemingly be completely unaware of it? Makes the podcast difficult to listen to.
First, I am far from perfect and quite certainly would be highly criticized if I attempted to be a professional voice talent tasked with interviewing, however Iâm not pursuing nor wish to be one.In this day and age I do not want to be over critical or mean any insensitivity of the host, but it is very difficult, if not impossible to get past her speech habits during the interviews. Even though I am of a different generation, the overuse of the word âlikeâ and repeating statements or questions in the same breath is off-putting and distracting. This is not a live podcast, so it would be easy to correct, make a more professional and listenable. #My2Cents
Yes, yes it can. Excited to dig into even more jaw-dropping details behind docs like Wild Wild Country.
Woahhh... where has this been all my life?! Every time I watch a Netflix documentary I end up staying up all night searching for stuff on google and commenting on forums. This is such a game changer! Woohoo!
Iâm so glad Netflix has entered the podcast world. When Iâm not watching an interesting doc on Netflix, Iâm listening to a podcasts so now Netflix is entering into my world just a little bit more. Keep them coming!!
Netflix is finally in the podcastgame!?
awesome idea, executed beautifully
So here for a podcast like this! And itâs so fascinating and well-done!
I've been an avid Netflix user since the good ole days of mailing out DVD's. As an avid podcast listener, I'm excited to be able to consume conversations about their shows!
Interested to see what Netflix does with a podcast. Will be a great way to get my documentary fix on the go!
Netflix gets into the podcast game!? Makes sense to meâthey are the masters of the true crime narrative. Very exciting, subscribed, as they are known for quality.
