Fantastic

I’d like to say that the sound affects are the best. Listening to this podcast is like having conversations with some friends about the craft of films. Being that it’s children movies is helpful too! With some, it’s a walk into nostalgia and analysing films of my youth and others is listening to what’s out there. I love listening to this podcast because it’s a nice way to chill with some buddies. Please listen!!

Emotions and Intelligence!

Is it good? Yes. Is it seriously good? YES! Great way to revisit and analyze entertainment aimed at kids from an adult perspective without removing the emotions involved. Paul and Jan aren’t worried about taking these movies seriously, without taking themselves too seriously.

Love it!

Love this podcast! So much fun thinking about all of my fav kids movies way too seriously! Paul and Jan do a great job of unpacking some of the issues that seem to get swept under the rug in these movies like sexism and racism. Glad to know I’m not crazy thinking about this stuff.

Thoughtful takes on kids films

Paul and Jan are excellent at talking through films aimed at kids from a thoughtful, intelligent perspective - what works in the story, what’s problematic, what the messages are that are really good for kids to be exposed to. It’s critical analysis that’s much needed for any type of media. Plus, for the older films, I love revisiting them as an adult.

Too much fun...SERIOUSLY

I have no children of my own, but I have seen a decent number of "kids" movies, and Jan & Paul know what they are talking about! They break these movies down in an accessible and insightful way, discussing what works, what doesn't, and what is really going on. This duo is smart and funny and worth spending some time with.

Seriously Good

It is hard to watch shows with your kids. The stories can be trite, predictable, or just poorly made. But sometimes there are classics that hold deep ideas. Jan and Paul tell you what is bad, what is good, and what is seriously good. A great show.

The Perfect Amount of Seriously

I love this podcast, and I don't even have kids. Jan and Paul analyze "kids media" with just the right amount of seriousness IMO, and have so many interesting things to say. It's been really fun revisiting my childhood favorites (like Hook and Wizard of Oz) and taking a closer look at modern animated films I watched as an adult (Like Up! and Inside Out). Highly recommend! (Also, I love their family movie night tradition. If I ever do have kids, I definitely want to do something similar.)
