Started listening after seeing a tweet about their Princess Diana series, and have binged loads of episodes since. LOVE this podcast, Mike and Sarah are really funny and never fail to blow my tiny mind with the information they put forward that makes me consider the historical events I 'thought' I knew.
On paper, this is the perfect podcast for me. I love having my mind changed, especially about topics I thought I knew something about. However, this podcast is just too long and too unstructured. It needs so much editing. There is enough material in each episode to make an engaging 30-40 minutes, sometimes more for more complex topics. The digressions need to be sliced out entirely. This podcast could be so good!
This is the podcast that got me into podcasts. I have learned so much from Sarah and Michael and am so glad to have found it. They offer such fresh perspectives on worn stories and are an absolute delight to listen to.
You're Wrong About is a great way to contextualize (or maybe REcontextualize in some cases) events that happened in recent history that I either didn't care about at the time due to age, or didn't fully understand. Sarah examines topics with sensitivity, and Mike always has hard data in hand to support the evidence. One of my favourite podcasts, for sure.
I couldn't get into this one. I get the appeal, and it does have it's merits. The topics are interesting, there's opportunity to learn a lot about a subject, and it makes you face some hard truths that maybe you've never thought of before. I didn't like the hosts though, their voices are kind of annoying, and they don't have the best rapport. Sometimes their research felt like they just talked to someone who agreed with the narrative they wanted instead of actually finding the answer and presenting more than one side. Other times it didn't feel any deeper than a Wiki page.
i love this podcast. the hosts have a great dynamic. one star off for too many one off episodes in between the deep dives... 3 months and we are back to OJ again? are we finished with the dc snipers? its a big mystery. fix that and this is literally my 2 fave podcast behind true crime obsessed and in front of MFM.
I've enjoyed several episodes so far. It smells a bit like 'Stuff you should know' but it's still something different. But also here I like the chemistry between the hosts.
My absolute favorite!!! I hope everything good in the world happens to the two of you!! From your research to your banter.... I couldn't ask for a better show!!! Please do not change a thing and continue to rock on. Thank you from the bottom to the tippy-tip of my heart.. Scott
In high school, I used to have disagreements with my roommate about her obsession with a K-pop singer(I just didn't get it). I understand the obsession now. Whenever a new episode comes up, I have to listen to it. I've probably listened to each episode multiple times.
It turns out, we don't always get the full story. You're Wrong About takes stories that we think we know about from bygone eras, and find new perspectives that often radically change the narrative. From the maligned women of the 90s, like Anna Nicole Smith and Monica Lewinski, to controversial stories like Ebonics and Terry Schiavo, to big-news crimes, like the DC Snipers and OJ Simpson, Mike and Sarah break down the background, show why we heard what we heard, then show us a new way to understand these stories, all with a deft, respectful touch and a light touch of humour. It's well worth your listen.
I've learned a ton about the back-stories of all of these stories I took at face-value when they happened. It's made me realize our society has been so much more cruel and stupid than I had appreciated.
