I subscribed yesterday, listened to the first of their podcasts that caught my eye, made it probably 15 minutes in, and immediately turned it off and unsubscribed. I'll tell you why.
These were the first two points of their "review" of the movie Selma
1. It should have been a documentary because the violence felt overdone. Like, I was questioning whether the people who died actually died. I assume some did, but I don't know. And the explosion in the beginning? Too violent! Come on!
2. You could totally tell when they were using real words. Like, MLK's speeches were really his words, and you could tell, because they were were his words.
Yeah, I had to unsubscribe from the podcast at that point. I can't even be amused at how wrong they are because of how wrong they are. I understand that not everyone has a solid grasp on mid-20th c. American history, but honestly? This is like middle school Social Studies, and the fact that they used their (lack of) knowledge of the true events to review this film was ridiculous. Not to mention, they thought this film was too violent? Michael Bay, anyone?
Yeah, I'm done.
