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.

After a few weeks of checking this pod out here and there, it’s now firmly on my must-listen rotation. I love the “hill we’re going to die on” segment.

Love these ladies

by Zuzy68 on Oct 13, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

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 couldn’t pull off. They really know their politics (procedurally and culturally) and each host is interesting and contributes a unique perspective. This isn’t just a token podcast for little ladies to give their little thoughts. And to boot, the ladies are just LOL hilarious!

Not much substance here

by shelbykincaid on Oct 11, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

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. It’s always the same old whiny SJW chatter that fails to tangibly confront real issues (in my opinion). After each episode I don’t feel like I’ve learned anything new, nor do I feel any hope or positivity.

Too soft!

I’ve been a regular listener to Pod Save America since it was called Keepin’ It 1600. Since the initial Kavanaugh hearings and then the second round with Dr Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony and Kanaigh’s temper tantrum, I’ve been a bit ticked off—to put it mildly. I’ve been funneling my rage by volunteering for female candidates and Planned Parenthood. Just listened to my first episode of Hysteria and I’m hooked. Started with Sasse-hole because he’s my senator! Thank you, ladies! You expressed what a lot of us feel in Nebraska! Think I’ll spend my day catching up on past episodes. It’s so therapeutic to listen to! Thank YOU!

I’m so glad to have found this podcast. I love everything on crooked media but I’m especially fond of hearing smart funny women talk about today’s issues from a woman’s perspective. And I know I’m NOT ALONE OUT HERE!

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 (isn’t there a regular way to say most things?) and I’m glad I never hear the chick who just says “totally” all the time, but they offer thoughtful opinions and insight on topics we all should be considering.

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 love all the Crooked Media pods, but this one is my soul food. It’s 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 I’m 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. It’s an added bonus that the whole panel is awesome. It’s one of those rare podcasts that gets played the minute a new episode pops in my feed.

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. It’s NOT a woman’s podcast. It a podcast made by women.

Rating: ★★★★☆

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 ‘like’, ‘you know’ and ‘I mean’ repeatedly in each sentence. I had to stop listening to your last episode and I didn’t want to! It just feels so immature. I’m sorry.AHHHHHH! I’m crying please let me enjoy your intelligence and comedy! Try TRY to stop saying ‘like’! Maybe cut it in half?

Feedback from a pharmacist on birth control issue

by mike the pharmacist on Sep 22, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

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. I’ve 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 I’ve shared it with quite a few friends

The feminist podcast I’ve been waiting for.

by Courtc3 on Sep 22, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

I absolutely adore Pod Save America, but it gets a little old listening to a bunch of white men talk about what’s going on in the shitstorm of current events. Enter Hysteria! This is literally the feminist podcast that I’ve been waiting my entire life for and never realized it. I love getting their take on what’s 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.

Feminist Bingo

by KTW22 on Sep 22, 2018
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

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 doesn’t 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 doesn’t mean I am pro-abortion. However, this podcast doesn’t even begin to address such nuances within the abortion debate. Such a wasted opportunity.

As a boomer I was concerned that all the bras that I burned in the 70’s was for naught. Thrilled to hear the young women don’t 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. You’re awesome. Thanks

I love all of the Crooked podcasts I’ve listened to, but this might be my favorite. It’s like having funny, feisty, feminist friends in the car with me. I highly recommend to any women who’s interested in politics, current events, and more general cultural issues and the effect they all have on women’s lives.

Want to love this!

by Canela36 on Sep 14, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

STOP SAYING “LIKE” 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 doesn’t seem like a disorganized mess (this is why I don’t 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 “like” 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 “like” every other word. I will keep listening because otherwise it is fab. Hope it keeps getting better!

Great podcast!

Disappointing because I want to like it...!

by SDSSTL on Sep 13, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

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.

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.
