You're Wrong About

Nov 30 2020 65 mins 22.3k

Mike and Sarah are journalists obsessed with the past. Every week they reconsider a person or event that's been miscast in the public imagination.

I enjoyed most episodes until their incredibly ignorant episodes about Princess Diana. They obviously have ZERO understanding of how the British monarchy and aristocracy have functioned for decades. So in this case, they're the ones who are wrong about it.

Absolute light of my life lately. Cannot recommend enough.

Was really enjoyable early on. The hosts have a good report, and they discussed some interesting subjects. Lately the hosts have become increasingly self indulgent and annoying. The petulance and smug naivety with which they discussed the royal family was the end for me. Maybe they have always been rediculous, and I only recognised it when they wern't talking about a 90s American folk villan. Regardless, I have lost all respect for the hosts and I can't recomend this podcast.

Great podcast

My favourite podcast bar none - am slowly indoctrinating all my friends into its joys. Hosts are smart and hilarious, topics are interesting, but mainly I am here for the connection between Sarah and Michael - in my queer utopia, this is the talk radio.

I really Liked The concept of this Podcast but they Started to be very yellow Press a-Like. Especially the latest episodes e.g. about Diana are Just pure yellow Press stuff. Just the Same as e.g. the sun with a strong Focus on blood and sperm. is nothing i was wrong about. Its Just Something i already kinda knew but really didnt wanted to know the details about...sry.

The idea is great and I do love me some stats, but there is just way too much personal and political opinions and views on every subject. There's no counter arguments and they don't question anything that is inline with their own beliefs and values. It comes off hypocritical, a bit narcissistic, very biased and just plain annoying after a while. Show like this with neutral hosts would be wonderful.

I LOVE this podcast. It's my absolute favorite and I can't stop recommending it whenever I can shove it into conversation.

I love this podcast. It's like listening to your smart funny friends telling you about something they learned recently (except Sarah and Michael actually do research) and I truly feel it's helped me be kinder to others.

Very interesting and entertaining podcast on topics that you thought you knew but don't

I liked the hosts, but I thought too much opinion leaked into the obesity episode. I agreed with their view point in general, thought they had insightful points on the prejudice larger people face, but they were wrong on some of the facts. Dieting isn't "impossible"; The statistic that 95% of people don't lose weight is wrong. Most people successfully lose weight but don't keep it off. Long termehavioral change is the difficult part. Just made me doubt their credibility

Nothing excites me like a new episode of YWA! I just wanna hang out with Sarah and Michael. I've learned so many things and had so many myths dispelled. It's one of my most-recommended podcasts!

Entertaining and educating with a bit of social commentary makes for some wild rides behind the perception. Good fun.

Trevor B Aug 03 2020
Spectacularly good, one of the best podcasts I've ever listened to. Michael and Sarah are always entertaining, informed and informative. I eagerly await every episode!

This has been my favorite podcast for more than a year! Hosts are funny, witty, smart, and doing a great service with this show.

For the most part, entertaining and informative. I was all-in until the Nancy Grace episodes; the bias overtones sounded a bit middle school and that got old fast. I'm not a huge fan of NG either, but I was disappointed in the snarky tone that somewhat, for me, invalidated the information.

Hajnalka Jul 16 2020
Currently in my top three podcasts, and I listen to a ton of them. I love learning new things, and these guys are great researchers. I don't understand how Sarah's mind works, but it's great. She makes me laugh on a daily basis ... and I am a cynical b*tch. Much respect.

One of my favourite podcasts

I listen to a lot of podcasts and this may be my favorite of them all. It's funny, self aware, and informative, but the real reason I love this podcast is that they challenge the listener to be more empathetic.

Although the concept of the podcast is great, the required research can be biased to meet their agenda. EXAMPLE: Courtney Love episode excludes her drug dealing, addiction and rehab, plainting her as nurse to Kurt Cobain and busy mom. Distorting detective recorded evidence of lies by Love as evidence her contradictory nature. They claim to correct the fake news with a repeat of official story & calling investigator's research fake because graphic design is ugly.

One of my favorite podcasts. Love their banter, digressions and variety of topics. Would love a McDonald's hot coffee episode! I thought I heard that referenced at some point but never saw it available.

This is in my top five favourite podcasts. The hosts are witty, great at dealing with difficult topics, the subjects are varied and well researched.

I really never write reviews because I'm lazy and don't want to take the time, bit I can't figure out how else to let Sara and Micheal know THAT I LOVE THEM. I can't stop listening. I feel like I'm part of a really elite and fancy, yet trashy, book club. Like Iowa Writers Workshop meets dive bar (which is pretty on par with my experiences at the university of Iowa). Anyway, PLEASE keep doing what you're doing and I Need More OJ Simpson trial coverage!

Gets me hype about things I never thought I could get hype for The OJSCU is wonderful

kdm852 May 19 2020
A podcast that explains many of the cultural references that many of us non-Americans have been awkwardly nodding at for years without the first idea what they were talking about.

jflo72 May 16 2020
If topics ever run dry do another book club series like Michelle remembers. I think you really have something there. Micheal is great. Also, Sarah might be the funniest person I've listened to in quite a while.

ansonchappell May 15 2020
These guys are funny, and not afraid to get into the weeds. I love the multi-part deep dive into all kinds of topics.

Jake May 13 2020
So great

Incredible debunking and debunking of the debunkings. The more you listen the better this podcast gets.

drno May 07 2020
Another excellent pop up trip down memory lane.

Ryvre May 07 2020
A truly excellent podcast about how our cultural memories get distorted.

Curtain Pole Apr 23 2020
Dreadful. Every statement of fact posed as a question with the intonation of a 13 year old high school student. Like totally....?

Absolutely magnificent.

LaHondan Apr 13 2020
Simply the best podcast ever. It was capitalism all along.

CJ20054 Apr 13 2020
Fascinating topics and an impressive amount of research goes into this podcast. They deserve a listen.

nakkis Apr 12 2020
Turns out none of us know anything, and that everything has always been horrible, but at least Mike and Sarah make it funny. Incredibly informative with really great research.
