Listening to this is like reading a real page turner. It helps define the term “Binge-worthy.” I hope to hear more of these for other monumental films!

I just found this podcast and I am hooked!

This is about Stephen Spielberg not jaws. Too many adverts which are very long and repetitive. Feel cheated.

But way to many ads

I was excited for what I thought was going to be a behind-the-scenes show about Jaws! Excitement very quickly turned to a sickening feeling listening to an explicit cold-open shark attack story that...is not directly related to Jaws. With no heads up for the listener or follow up after the...Read full review »

I didn’t really learn much new about the film from this podcast to be honest. Incredibly annoying adverts and the description of sharks as “vicious monsters” was puerile. The Gottlieb interview was the most interesting.

This Podcast presents a tale of pre- and post- production of my favorite movie of all time - JAWS! Everything here is presented in great detail and quality, I was pleasantly surprised. Voice Acting is great, and so is production in sounds that accompany the voice actors. This could be easily...Read full review »

Great podcast! Told so interestingly and love the additional stories told that tie to Jaws.
Stitchin Christin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/20
Very interesting Like the story of Steven growing up .

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this podcast, and it definitely was different than I imagined, but I loved it. Mark’s a great story teller and easy to listen to. If you love Jaws, definitely listen.

If you have to endure some torturous event like a kids soccer game or a car ride across Wisconsin, put this on. You’re welcome.
MNHouseMouse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/20
I was really disappointed with this podcast, after throughly enjoying "Inside Star Wars". Interesting history of Steven Spielberg, but very light on actual Jaws production, and not very cohesive. Nice basic Hollywood connections history, but disappointing.Read full review »

Some interesting content, but mostly padding. One whole episode worth is about the Indianapolis. Another 2 episodes worth is Spielberg as a kid.
fleur0112 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/20
This is a very well produced podcast but less than a single episode is dedicated to just jaws. Not to mention the part that focuses on jaws basically just goes “Spielberg wakes up, goes to set, shark doesn’t work, repeat” and I don’t mean they explain the problem, it quite literally says nothing...Read full review »

This is such a well done and interesting podcast. Every part of it was enjoyable! Highly recommend!!
hills7511 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/25/20
So incredibly interesting, I learned so much. I had no idea that some of the story in jaws were based on real events in history. The stories were woven in amazing tales that are captivating. Please continue this podcast maybe with Animal House 😃
love dogs 58 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/20
Very little of this podcast was actually about the movie Jaws. The first 3 episodes were about Spielberg’s past and the last about his career after Jaws. Did not learn very much about Jaws itself. The shark attack portions that inspired the book were interesting.
MereBear11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/20
I bet Spielberg himself is proud of this podcast gem.
awtoy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/20
Oy.
You. Can’t. Write. And you’re awful at narration. I got half-way through the first episode before frustration forced me to stop. How did you manage to make such fascinating subject intolerable?
Tallowyck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/28/20
Great job guys. It’s nice to have a Wondery podcast that’s not about true crime. I love this show! P.S Inside Indiana Jones would make me wish that every day was Wednesday.
J dawd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/20
Listened after hearing it recommended on BBC Radio 4. Agree that it’s a little random, but I enjoyed it - interesting mix of trivia. Very Spielberg focused but 🤷🏼‍♀️ it was good.
Filmdom player via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/01/20
I binged this series in two days. The back and forth between the true life stories that inspired jaws and the story of the making of jaws were interwoven to constantly leave the listening wanting more. The story telling was great, can’t recommend enough if you love the movie!
g2gmama via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/20
This was the most disjointed series podcasts I have ever listened to! There are so many questions raised (Lady of the Dunes... just to name one) that were never fully explored and answered.
H. Walker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/20
Fun, insightful, comprehensive and a little scary. If the movie didn't keep you out of the water, the podcast might.Read full review »

All I Can say it is terrible. Don’t do it again.
Hesley elena alvarez via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/20
This was the first Wondrey Podcast, I ever listened to. Started listening on a whim, and I was hooked. I burned through it over a long weekend. Please com back soon with the next series.

Jaws? You mean the George Lucas story? Why???? This was simply a mess.
Hypernoid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/20
This was a very well put together podcast, which tied in multiple interesting narratives. Jaws is still one of my favorite movies because of the simple story, told well. We are always told to face our fears head on. Captain Quint was obsessed with his and was eventually consumed by his figurative...Read full review »

Blimey charlie get to the story, padding and adverts, which are inserted into the narrative, a lot. So 15 minutes and that's a listener lost! Did I mention the adverts!!!!Read full review »

Loved it but I would have loved to know more about the actual filming of jaws.
Silvermoth via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/18/19
this show is amazing. hope more “insides” happen
elisjordan1219 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/19
Fantastic podcast with an indepth insigt into the making of one of the greatest movies of all time. High quality podcast. A must listen for fans of jaws
Predator2097 via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 09/27/19
i was excited to come across this as jaws is one of my all time favourite films "BUT" i think the adverts are too much and too long and felt i haven’t learned anything new about jaws. it should be called " steven spielberg and adverts" I’ve decided not to listen to the rest as...Read full review »

Loved it. Great job. Thank you!
Pooh-head via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/19
This is a wonderful companion piece to Carl Gottlieb’s The Jaws Log. At times though, I found the structure of this show took some getting used to, but it’s very insightful.
metallifan1138 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
So good. I didn’t think anything could touch the special edition jaws doc or Jamie Bening’s filmumentary but this is a great insight into the master! Great work and keep them coming. This and Star Wars superb work
futuretravis via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/04/19
He made me feel like I was there during the filming.
z3bos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/19
33 minute pod cast - 3 or 4 minutes worth of credits, at least 10 minutes of commercials that are more annoying than usual because the narrator reads them right in the middle of the story. The 1st 10 minutes are devoted to a side story or backing story that does not always enhance the actual...Read full review »

This series is well done, Jaws fans will love it, but like “Inside Psycho,” the creator should realize that more voices would improve the entire presentation. Wondery should certainly be able to provide enough budget to do that.
sinoscuba via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
This is good well known story brought to life with much unknown, additional detail. Also very well produced.
Elsa B. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/19
Im not even a fan of the movie because it gave me nightmares after i saw it shortly after release. I saw this at a NAAFI movie night in Dusseldorf and i had nightmares for months after seeing that leg floating to the ocean floor *shudder*. This is an excellent podcast and genuinely laugh out loud...Read full review »

Yeah maybe it had “fillers” but it gives us an inside of what Stevens life was like in the beginning until now. Plus “fillers” were pretty informative. Amazing director who will go down in history as one of the best.
Di McC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/19
Come on Wondery. The story of Speilburg's childhood is so interesting, but you destroy it by jumping around needlessly to kill the story. Episode 2 is much better, and makes sense, but the first episode is so bad, it kills the mood and momentum of the entire piece. When you have such a...Read full review »
Matt Pa1 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/04/19
Every episode starts with a gruesomely depicted shark attack story that feels like fluff and a time filler. The ads are ridiculous long. In a 30 minute podcast, you might actually get 10-12 minutes about the movie Jaws. Could have been a great podcast but fell flat.
TN_Zak_08 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/19
I liked the style of this podcast. The way it entwined the original incident with the movie was cool. There were some parts that were a bit sketchy i.e Robert shaw finding his dad dead seemed to be shoehorned in to the story and then forgotten about. Also the relationship between shaw and Richard...Read full review »

I’ve loved the other series produced so far. And although this has similar storytelling and production values, it focuses less on the filmmaking (which interests me) and seemingly more on other semi-related stories and lots of focus on intrusive advertising. I understand series need advertising...Read full review »

Many details of Spielberg’s life that I learned. This is a thoughtful piece to highlight his brilliance and kind soul. I would not have the respect to subscribe to this podcast without his eventual support of environmental support for sharks.
Mylakeside21 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/14/19
•The frequent hangs of partly stated antic-dotes, which being half-way through the series, I await full explanations of a few things, such as what the hell does Spielberg’s mom’s “note” say?!? •The background sounds are often too loud in relationship to the read text. •Why not use some real...Read full review »
