Love this podcast but please talk a bit slower!I am loving this podcast and currently making my way through all the episodes! I do found that Sarah and Mike talk so fast I sometimes wonder if there was a mistake in the recording and a button was pressed that speeds it up! Otherwise, I think it’s one of the best podcasts I’ve listened to!.Score: 5/5

Opinions not factsI wanted to like this podcast, I imagined it was going to be unbiased, but sadly not. I picked a couple of episodes and quite like the presentation style, but on the 2nd episode I sampled about obesity Michael states -"30% of overweight people are metabolically healthy whereas 24% of people that are not overweight are metabolically unhealthy". Immediate red flag. I have no idea if these percentages are true but to present them in a way to attempt to deliberately mislead is just poor journalism. Using the same data you could have said that "if you're overweight you're almost 3 times as likely to be metabolically unhealthy." Unsubscribed..Score: 2/5

Tired of white guiltIt’s a really interesting and well performed show, but I’m tired of insidious ‘white guilt’ being shoved down my throat. Sure, it’s fine to have a dialogue around history but the un-nuanced ‘jokes’ about how terrible white people are I think is tasteless and ill informed. It’s a very complex issue with a complex myriad historical context; this virtue signalling ruins an otherwise good show..Score: 2/5

The little details are importantI heard about the Diana episodes so gave them a go. The whole 'Brits are weird' was amusing at first (and it was hard not to agree at times) but soon it became sloppy. When the hosts started laughing about the Household Cavalry or the royals attending 'colour the troop' I began to actively dislike them. I understand that the words Trooping the Colour may sound odd to an American, but it and the cavalry are only casually mentioned so a simple google was all that was needed. The hosts, who profess to be journalists, should know that the little details are important because if you can't get them right how on earth are they meant to get the big stuff right?

Smug, Patronising, Wrong, PrejudicedThe topics seemed to be very superficially researched and the presenters are irritating and self-satisfied. There is decent content & some entusiasm but it is obscured by far too much: 1.Main presenter – can’t wait to tell you how clever she is and spouts facts as if the audience would be unable to check anything. 2.Supporting presenter - seems to have woken up out of a coma having lost the use of large parts of her brain. Her only job being to gasp and comment approvingly without seeming to know anything whatsoever about the topic being covered. 3.The subtext of a lot of the narration is entitled anti-white, anti-British, anti-straight. Ironically mirroring exactly the same prejudices that are being complained about. Interesting “Facts” We Didn’t Learn 4.Disco – “the term was first used in New York in early 1970s.” Errr no it wasn’t. It was already in use in Paris France in the 1940s to describe underground jazz clubs where records were played in preference to bands playing. There was also a nightclub in London which opened in 1963 called The Discotheque which was abbreviated to The Disco where records were played. 5.1st Disco Hit - Gloria Gaynor never can say goodbye (Oct 74). Let’s ignore the fact that this was a cover version of the Jackson 5 hit from 1971. Rock Your Baby (Jul 74), Love Train (72), Zing Went Strings Trammps (72), Soul Makossa (72) all have stronger and earlier claims. 6. 1st Reality TV Show – “Survivor USA 2000”. No!

Sarah and Michael clearly have a lot of chemistry and do a great job at presenting each episode.

Disappointed.I was enjoying this podcast and truly appreciated the concept, but I made it halfway through the OJ Simpson/Nicole Brown Simpson episode before I had to switch it off. I was so utterly disappointed by the apologist rhetoric. I absolutely understand avoiding using dehumanizing language to speak about an individual, but this extended far beyond that. The host went as far as to say she “felt bad” for him, and that kind of stance taken in response to holding an abuser/murderer accountable for their actions is wildly detrimental. I can’t believe that in a podcast episode supposedly centering on the story of a woman murdered and mutilated by her abusive partner, we’re still expected to adhere to the “hurt people hurt people” mentality that keeps so many people in terribly abusive dynamics. This episode was supposed to finally bring Nicole Brown Simpson’s full humanity into the spotlight, but instead it brought up the same wretched shame I experienced when I was initially processing my own abusive relationship and had my experience diminished by people who insisted I’d just been tangled up with a “complicated, hurt man.” Such an irresponsible take.

OJ series filled with lies & misrepresentationsIf Nicole and Ron were black, would there be an extensive series devoted to their murders? Doubt it. Here are some facts Sarah and Michael, the epitome of white liberals (stanning white feminist Marcia Clark, giving genocidal racist Mark Fuhrman a pass, reinforcing the black brute narrative, insulting the jury’s intelligence) won’t share: Denise Pilnak was a neighbor of Nicole’s. Her telephone bill shows she was on the phone from 10:25 PM & 10:28 PM. Prior to making this phone call, she & her friend noted how quiet the neighborhood was. Several minutes later between 10:33 & 10:35 PM, she testified that’s when she began to hear the sound of a barking dog, the time of the murders. Allan Park testified to seeing OJ near the front door of the Rockingham estate at 10:55 PM, & his telephone records also document that. That leaves less than 25 minutes for OJ to commit the murders, drive back home, get rid of the evidence, etc. Both Nicole & Ron had defensive wounds. Ron in particular was in hand to hand combat and even kicked out at his killer. OJ had no injuries indicating he was in this kind of struggle. The cut on his finger wasn’t seen by anyone who interacted with him at the airport, on the airplane ride to Chicago, or when he immediately landed in Chicago. This includes people who got autographs from him, shook hands with him, & observed his hands. A broken glass & bloody towel were found in his hotel room & it was documented he asked for a bandage at the hotel. The FBI searched all of OJ’s & Nicole's credit card records & found no receipt belonging to either of them that showed a purchase of Bruno Magli shoes. Every store that sold the shoes in the country was searched, & they couldn't find anyone who sold him the shoes. The National Enquirer photos that came out in the civil trial show OJ wearing suede shoes on a rainy day & don’t match the weather conditions of the football game. Furthermore, it was found that the shoe soles said to be OJ's footprint were more popular than the prosecution maintained, the manufacturer sold the pattern to numerous shoe lines. 1.5 millimeters of OJ’s blood went missing from its vial. Thanos Peratis, the nurse who withdrew OJ’s blood, initially testified that he withdrew 8 millimeters. He took that back when only 6.5 appeared & the prosecution suggested he was mistaken. In 2004 he admitted to William Dear that he was certain he withdrew 8 millimeters because it was the amount he had drawn from patients all of his career, but he was close to retirement & had health issues so he didn’t want to cause any trouble. Phillip Vannatter had the blood vials of OJ, Nicole, and Ron in his possession for several hours before booking them into evidence. The DNA results of the sock in OJ’s bedroom was reported before testing had even been done on it. The blood on the sock also seeped all the way through the sock as if there was no foot in it and had traces of EDTA. The Bundy glove contained none of OJ’s DNA. The Rockingham glove only contained his DNA in the area where Collin Yamauchi testified to spilling OJ's reference blood sample while handling it. An identical knit cap matching the knit cap found at the crime scene was discovered inside Nicole’s house. Those caps most likely belonged to Sydney and Justin Simpson. Mark Fuhrman referred to himself as Nicole’s private cop around the West LA division before the murders & was heard bragging about seeing her boob job according to a LAPD Internal Affairs investigation. A broken piece of fence and a blue plastic evidence bag were found at Rockingham, both entered into evidence. An anonymous source within the LAPD contacted journalist Stephen Singular in August of 1994 & told him Fuhrman used the broken piece of fence to lift up one of the gloves & transported it to Rockingham in a blue plastic evidence bag, among other things. John Meraz & William Blasini encountered the Bronco at the lot where it had been impounded days after the murders. They both looked inside it for blood & testified they saw none. There was also only 1/8th of one drop of blood ever found inside it. LAPD technicians lifted 17 fingerprints from the crime scene & none of them matched OJ. If you listen to the full 911 call, OJ is yelling about drugs & hookers being in the house. Nicole told Sgt. Lally that OJ hadn’t hit her in 4 years when he questioned her. After the 1989 beating, OJ added an addendum to their prenuptial agreement which stated that if he struck her again, she would’ve been entitled to a settlement of 5+ million dollars. OJ wasn't scheduled to be in LA during that week. He had been busy working & made a last minute decision to come back for Sydney's recital. Video taken of him afterwards shows him in a good mood, kissing his kids & the Brown’s goodbye. Nicole told her mother OJ would always be her soulmate while they were eating dinner at Mezzaluna. Sydney was planning to have a sleepover that night with one of her friends. According to family and friends who attended the recital and dinner, OJ was aware of this. Committing a murder with the possibility of having the kids hurt or things getting out of control, in addition to having a flight to catch, doesn’t make sense. Christian Reichardt spoke with OJ on the phone an hour before the murders & testified he sounded relaxed and jovial. After the bodies were discovered, Sydney told the police she heard Nicole fighting & crying with Faye Resnick on the phone earlier that night. Brett Cantor ran a nightclub called The Dragonfly where Ron worked for him & Nicole liked to frequent. He was stabbed to death and nearly decapitated in 1993. Judge Ito ruled the defense team could review his case. His murder remains unsolved. Michael Nigg was friends with Ron and also worked at the Mezzaluna restaurant. He was shot in the head in 1995 after refusing to give his money to men outside an ATM. The men who shot him didn't end up taking his money. His murder remains unsolved..Score: 1/5

Talk about misinformation...Maybe you’re “loosing” the “older” people in your life to Fox News because they are wiser, have lived longer and seen much more than you.
