Great, funny, and smart review of HMT

Love this podcast! Full disclosure: I have only listened to the episode recaps but think they’re top notch, and I’m excited to go back through and listen to the other episodes with interviews and other content. Molly and Kelly are hilarious but what attracts me most to this podcast is just hearing two smart chicks really dig into the different layers of HMT and have a good time! Anyone who is or was a writer, English major, theater or improv geek, and all around well spoken and intelligent human will enjoy this podcast. The discussion is lively and I so appreciate how closely they “read” the show - like a text- and I find myself having fabulous moments of disagreement and revelations without every episode. 10 out of 10 will listen again/donate and join the facebook group/buy merch!

Pure delight

I started listening at season 3 and I was so entertained that I went back to listen to the show from the beginning. Their recaps are insightful and they have the jokes #chillnotshrill #getit #sardonic #shannon #carol. I’m proud to be a Red Head.

I love the podcast but !!!!

I wish they didn’t want the show to end. I love the handmaid tale more than a podcast. I wish they support the tv series more. Most of the time they criticize the main character , when in fact there is no girls guide to Gilead, June is doing what she can !!

Maybe not my cup of tea

I wish they would focus more on the show, rather than going on tangents about other shows or movies. The way that one girl seems to always have to be right is off putting. The loud screeching is obnoxious. Maybe they could add a more chill third to the equation.

Fun for a serious show

I like listening to these two. They’ve got a nice rapport and make interesting, smart points. I always hear something illuminating about the show, something I’d have missed on my own. They sometimes get a bit far off topic and silly but since the subject matter can be tough it doesn’t bother me. Thanks for adding to my enjoyment of the show!

Informed podcast but terrible fake laughter and going off track

I like this podcast because it’s so informative Molly and Kelly both know their Handmaid‘s Tale inside and out they read the books and know the shows and give really informed analysis and opinions. I’m so glad this was the finale of season three because I don’t know that I could’ve taken those two going off track again and Molly‘s forced laugh it wasn’t as bad as it’s been in previous shows. But going off track about Ferris Bueller’s Day Off film means nothing it doesn’t lend anything to the podcast. If you can get through their distractions and going off track not for a second or two but for several seconds and bursting into song especially when they duet and sometimes Molly’s forced laughter which I know she’s not intentionally doing it’s a superb podcast. I love the production I love the discussions. Also their nicknames I had no idea at first who JLaw or Joey Lawrence or that it was the same day resin. And then this podcast I was hoping they wouldn’t do it they broke out into song from the musical Annie which may be a lot of people in their age group now but I know a lot of my friends that listen to the podcast don’t know. The breaking of this song is cringe worthy. People are probably wondering why I even listen to it the way I comment on it if I complain about everything sometimes it’s worth to go through the cringe worthy moments because of their fantastic insights into the show.

Entertaining, honest and insightful

There are a lot of Handmaids Tale podcasts out there, but Molly and Kelly are at another level. Their report, humor, diverse viewpoints and sometimes brutal criticism makes the high points of the show even richer and earned.

Fun

If you’re looking for an in-depth, donnish analysis of this show or book that fits the whispery public-radio stereotype, this is not the podcast for you. This is more chit-chatting with your friends or coworkers about a show you’re both really into the morning after it airs. Kelly & Molly are both quite intelligent and articulate though, and I find their commentary insightful.They discuss differences between the book and the show and provide their interpretations of elements of both. I also find it interesting when they consider the story from their own frames of reference and talk about why things that take place are so deeply disturbing either inherently or as parallels to current events.As other reviewers have mentioned, there is a lot of laughing and a lot of jokes, and the overall tone is generally light-hearted which for me is helpful in discussing subject matter that is so deeply troubling. I love that they make a point to repeatedly remind listers to take care of themselves as they journey through the book. They get it! I also have to disagree with reviews that think the discussion is rooted in the counterproductive and extreme left. It seems situated instead in the middle of the comfortably-woke zone that addresses signifiant issues but is no so far left that it kills the chance for meaningful dialog.

Giving up.

I’m out. I’ve been hanging in, but this podcast is getting worse. Molly does her best to maintain focus, but Kelly needs to calm down. The Bruce Miller interview was the clincher. That should have been about questions for him to get information for listeners, not opportunities for jokes. You were borderline disrespectful, cutting him off a few times. Get rid of the fake laughing and joking.

Not good but could be great

I really tried. I mean really, really tried. I’ve started and stopped this podcast like 5x. I was looking for thoughtful commentary of this sometimes great always painful show but I can’t get past the bad podcasting. Pros: they’re women (a bonus when discussing a show on the systematic oppression and slavery of women), Molly provides good commentary, podcasts post fast Molly is definitely the stronger of the two hosts. I swear you can hear her get irritated with the other co-host’s loud laughter, weird voices, random commentary not related to the show and consistently bringing everything back to her own life experiences. The only reason a lot of people listen are bc there is no good podcast for this show really. The better podcasts get updated later in the week while these ladies have early access to the content and so this podcast is up super quick. I wish they would think about this consistent feedback they are getting about these issues and try to adjust some instead of doubling down. This has the potential to be a much better podcast.

The jokes aren’t THAT funny

I listen to this podcast because it comes out the same night the show does. And they eventually get around to recapping the show. I get annoyed frequently at how long and loudly they laugh at their own jokes. The first time, I thought maybe I was in a bad mood and other people’s laughter was getting on my nerves too easily. But no. It’s the podcasters that are annoying. I rarely can make it to the end.

Feminism

I really love this podcast as I’m wrapped up in this show so much that I’m almost done with season 2 when I just started watching this a week ago. That being said in the first episode of this podcast I think commenting so much on getting upset over the feminism comments I don’t think it’s terrible to say all humans matter which is what the writer and Elisabeth Moss said and people took this to a whole new level of feminism in this episode. Would like this podcast better if it wasn’t so negative about it.

This show gave me a real “herpes vibe” ugh

I’ve only listened to the first two episodes but...GURL. Too much negativity and ignorant commentary. Specifically in relation to the joke from my title, which is harmful to those with STIs and was made about an actor/character in the second episode. Would not recommend. Very little actual content.
