... thereâs too much yacking before they get to the topics listed in the description. Get to the substance already.
This is my weekly political info-dump whilst drinking a hot cup of feminist rage. The hosts are so funny that I even enjoy listening to their commercials. I live for this podcast. Sometimes literally.
I enjoy this podcast. Wish they would disagree with each other a bit more.
Canât wait to hear more and get to know the hosts better. But if Ziwe says âtotallyâ one more time, I swear my head will explode!
This podcast feels like the conversations I would have with my own girlfriends. Topics and discussions are on point! In a world a male views I love love love these voices. I hope this will eventually be twice a week. If you love pod save America, hysteria is a must. Girl power!
After a few weeks of checking this pod out here and there, itâs now firmly on my must-listen rotation. I love the âhill weâre going to die onâ segment.
I love this show, I canât wait to hear the show ever week. The âhill Iâll die onâ is my favorite part of the show.
This is a great podcast - lots of substantive politics discussed but the ladies also talk about weird quirks that only women can understand and the guys at Pod Save America just couldnât pull off. They really know their politics (procedurally and culturally) and each host is interesting and contributes a unique perspective. This isnât just a token podcast for little ladies to give their little thoughts. And to boot, the ladies are just LOL hilarious!
I am a huge Crooked Media fan, and I love all these ladies, but the podcast itself is kind of the same thing every week. Itâs always the same old whiny SJW chatter that fails to tangibly confront real issues (in my opinion). After each episode I donât feel like Iâve learned anything new, nor do I feel any hope or positivity.
Love the pod! Wish I could hear you !! Turn it up !
Love this pod. Feel like Iâm having a chat with my girlfriends. Although my girlfriends IRL donât have any journalistic or policy experience whatsoever.
Iâve been a regular listener to Pod Save America since it was called Keepinâ It 1600. Since the initial Kavanaugh hearings and then the second round with Dr Christine Blasey Fordâs testimony and Kanaighâs temper tantrum, Iâve been a bit ticked offâto put it mildly. Iâve been funneling my rage by volunteering for female candidates and Planned Parenthood. Just listened to my first episode of Hysteria and Iâm hooked. Started with Sasse-hole because heâs my senator! Thank you, ladies! You expressed what a lot of us feel in Nebraska! Think Iâll spend my day catching up on past episodes. Itâs so therapeutic to listen to! Thank YOU!
Great people. Great sound design. Great everything.
Iâm so glad to have found this podcast. I love everything on crooked media but Iâm especially fond of hearing smart funny women talk about todayâs issues from a womanâs perspective. And I know Iâm NOT ALONE OUT HERE!
One of the best podcasts on the internet. Smart, funny, thoughtful ladies discussing issues important to women. The hill I'll die on is nothing beats this show. Keep up the hard work and great content. Charlotte
LOVE Hysteria, I wish they had more than one episode per week.
Love this podcast. I canât start my Thursday without it!
Who wrote and plays that theme song? Is it on iTunes? I want to listen to it all the time!!!
I keep up with politics and I'm a podcast addict, but there are some days when I just don't want to hear men talk any more. That used to rule out almost every single political commentary podcast, but no longer. Thank god for these women. Thank you ladies for being brilliant, hilarious, real as f*ck, and so, so importantly, not men.
I love this podcast so much! I wish there were more podcasts only hosted by women, because it's brilliant and it is a whole different way to view the world. Keep it up, dears! You're changing the world, one podcast at a time :)
Never binge listen to this podcast. A little eye-rolly due to the sporadic and inevitable hipster lingo dropped in every single episode (isnât there a regular way to say most things?) and Iâm glad I never hear the chick who just says âtotallyâ all the time, but they offer thoughtful opinions and insight on topics we all should be considering.
I need more podcasts like this.
I am a huge podcast fan but am terrible at leaving reviews - I need to make amends for that with Hysteria. I've been a subscriber since week one, and I think this group of smart, funny, engaging, and entertaining women are really hitting their stride now! They provide insightful commentary on current events and offer their own personal stories of why it impacts them. They highlight some very cool women with "I'll Have What She's Having" that I may never have heard of, and of course provide some very funny "Hills To Die On" (seriously, glad to know I'm not the only one who prefers my soup noodle-free!). Thanks for giving me a reason to look forward to my Thursday morning commute!
I really love this podcast because it is both smart and funny. Sometimes, I just need to hang with women, this is my fix.
This is my favoirte podcast right now! I love the way Erin and all the other co-hosts discuss current events in a way that helps me to process and find some humor in some not funny times.
I love all the Crooked Media pods, but this one is my soul food. Itâs like getting to spend an hour or so with my snarkiest, smartest, most well-informed girlfriends, giving voice to all the frustration and anger and hope Iâm feeling right now as a woman in this country. Thank you ladies!
With Erin and Alyssa being in the mix, I was on board from the jump. Itâs an added bonus that the whole panel is awesome. Itâs one of those rare podcasts that gets played the minute a new episode pops in my feed.
The peer group I never knew I needed & now canât live without. Girls to the front!
As a 55 year old, cis, white woman from the Midwest, I may be a little different than the core audience. All I can say is, thank you! Love this pod. It is âmust listenâ for me (Iâm old enough to remember âmust watch tvâ). I look forward to Thursdays!
The best podcast Iâve heard, absolutely love listening
This podcast has quickly gone from one among many that I listen to, to being played the instant it hits my feed. All the hosts are smart, insightful and funny. Itâs NOT a womanâs podcast. It a podcast made by women.
Tell us the name of the band again or leave it in the notes every week! Canât find it on iTunes.
As a group, you discuss topics I can relate to and information women need. With comedy! My comment, I did not want to make publicly, but this is the available platform. Ladies, you are all intelligent, so I URGE you to please stop filling your discussions with âlikeâ, âyou knowâ and âI meanâ repeatedly in each sentence. I had to stop listening to your last episode and I didnât want to! It just feels so immature. Iâm sorry.AHHHHHH! Iâm crying please let me enjoy your intelligence and comedy! Try TRY to stop saying âlikeâ! Maybe cut it in half?
By far my favorite podcast in my feed. Thatâs the hill Iâll die on.
This podcast is giving me life. Funny, yet serious at the same time. News impacting women is covered in a smart and witty way. Keep it going ladies!
Hi all, as a cis affluent white gay male pharmacist, hearing your troubles around getting the brand birth control that you needed was really eye opening for me. Iâve switched out generics of birth controls many times without realizing the impact it might have on patients.I also wanted to offer that you may be able to ask for reimbursement from your pharmacy plan if you have insurance that required mail order, but the medication did not arrive on time for you and you had to pay out of pocket. I love your show and Iâve shared it with quite a few friends
I absolutely adore Pod Save America, but it gets a little old listening to a bunch of white men talk about whatâs going on in the shitstorm of current events. Enter Hysteria! This is literally the feminist podcast that Iâve been waiting my entire life for and never realized it. I love getting their take on whatâs happening in the country. I love all of their segments. If this is the only thing I could listen to for the rest of my life, I would die happy. Keep it up and THANK YOU.
As an east coast liberal lady, I really wanted to like this podcast. But it is too much like a game of feminist bingo. I spend each episode wondering how long it will take them to mention birth control, female private parts, female sanitary items, or how wonderful abortion is (in case you are wondering, it doesnât take long for these topics to come up). There is more to being a woman than sitting around and gabbing about these reductive and,quite frankly, boring topics. Also, I think they are too quick to praise abortions. I am pro-choice, but that doesnât mean I am pro-abortion. However, this podcast doesnât even begin to address such nuances within the abortion debate. Such a wasted opportunity.
This podcast is my favorite. I love my drive to work on Thursdayâs because I get to listen to the ladies. Thank you!!!
Love the show! Great woman talk!
As a boomer I was concerned that all the bras that I burned in the 70âs was for naught. Thrilled to hear the young women donât take for granted what we have and still need for female equality. Thanks for great and relevant pod cast for women of all ages and situations. Love the music and girlfriend chat about real things like underwear and over shopping when you move. Like hanging with the girls for a bit. Youâre awesome. Thanks
I love all of the Crooked podcasts Iâve listened to, but this might be my favorite. Itâs like having funny, feisty, feminist friends in the car with me. I highly recommend to any women whoâs interested in politics, current events, and more general cultural issues and the effect they all have on womenâs lives.
STOP SAYING âLIKEâ SO MUCH!!! Going through some growing pains I believe but here are a few well intentioned suggestions! 1. Work on your audio. Sometimes it is so low that even on loudest volume I struggle to hear everyone. 2. Have all hosts introduce themselves in their own voice. It is SO hard to tell your voices apart. Help us! 3. Have a bit more organization. Look at Love it or Leave it and their structure. John clearly introduces each segment of the show so it doesnât seem like a disorganized mess (this is why I donât listen to pod save America, those guys just talk talk talk all over the place, no structure). Structure makes it easier to follow what you are talking about. 4. Last and probably most important. For the love of god... please ask the hosts to stop using the word âlikeâ so much. It is so distracting. I find myself counting how many times one host in particular says it. She has very valid and and smart opinions but they are so hard to comprehend when she says âlikeâ every other word. I will keep listening because otherwise it is fab. Hope it keeps getting better!
Come for the feminism, stay for the controversial takes on crema vs. sour cream.
UPDATE: I've added a star to my rating! Since my original review on 8/3/18, the show has really improved. More structure, more entertaining. Much easier to listen to the last couple of episodes (late August, early September). Love the "Hills We're Going to Die On" and "This Week in 'Sorry'" segments. Continued criticisms: PLEASE work on the audio - It's still very quiet even on full volume. Also, please never bring back Ziwe - terrible laugh, offers little substance, too immature for this platform.I've found it difficult to get through almost every one of the handful of episodes released so far. As an avid consumer of other Crooked pods, I really want to like this one. Instead, I've found it mostly predictiable, boring, and somewhat shallow. I totally respect Erin Ryan, but some of the other hosts (ahem, Ziwe) I find totally off-putting. (To be fair, Ziwe was EXTREMELY irritating on a recent episode of Lovett or Leave It -- so my walls were already up). I had high hopes for this pod, but unfortunately, it just comes off as a shallow echo-chamber with not much substance and sub-par conversations. I haven't unsubscribed just yet - but I'm getting close.
I love listening to all these interesting women talk about politics, current events, and popular culture. I highly recommend this show.
This is easily becoming my favorite podcast ever. Smart, funny, and a perfect balance of light-hearted humor and sad-gressive news.
I'm a straight, white man, and I love this show. Smart, insightful, funny.
The content that is audible is fantastic. These women must not actually listen to their own podcast for quality purposes because if they did they would know that they need to speak up. It sounds like they're whispering. Listen to an all woman podcast where you can hear them instead of this one.
Love listening every Thursday to all the women on this show break down what's happening and keep me sane when the news is crazy. Erin Gloria Ryan was my favorite guest on other Pod Save podcasts, so glad they gave her a show! Highly recommend!
