Aside from the fact that there were WAY too many ads per episode for a 25 minute podcast, it didn’t focus very much on the actual movie. Was a bit disappointed.

I wish this story could go on forever. The host does a great job of telling the story of Steven Spielberg and Jaws. Wish they would have made many more of these!

This podcast had a lot of promise, but wound up being a mess of jumbled stories disconnected ideas, and the jumpiest timeline of the telling of a story I’ve ever listen to.

As a huge fan of the film Jaws I was very excited for this podcast. It was well done and I enjoyed the format. The only criticism I have is that it seemed to focus more on Steven Spielberg and his career rather than the film Jaws. I love that as well but I feel like Spielberg’s career should be...Read full review »

too much made up story not enough facts. if you are looking for a podcast about the making of jaws… this isn’t it

I remember us passing the book Jaws around in 6th grade. We LOVED it though really it was an adult book. When the film came out I had an epic battle convincing my parents to let me see it. But I won! And saw it I think 8 times that summer-no VCRs then! What a great trip down memory lane and a...Read full review »

Scary but awesome podcast

I listened to this as enjoyed Psycho, but there was quite a lot of jumping round between different events and things that didn’t really feel relevant. I didn’t mind that it focused on Spielberg but even that was quite lacking, I would say half of it isn’t related to him. I don’t have ads...Read full review »

Interesting and entertaining! Please make more, so many great movies out there!
ccbaxter818 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/21
Loved ‘Inside The Exorcist’ so thought I would give this a try. I get the impression that the content is probably just as good. But the advertising is awful. Not only is it too frequent, it also blurs the lines - i.e. the presenter starts talking about how Spielberg was struggling to sleep during...Read full review »

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!
Cando5 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/11/21
This is about Stephen Spielberg not jaws. Too many adverts which are very long and repetitive. Feel cheated.
elepj via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/05/21
But way to many ads
karen8196 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/28/21
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.
Kniphofia7 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/15/21
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 .
craized cruise guy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/20
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 »
wildcoho via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/20
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 »

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 »

Loved it but I would have loved to know more about the actual filming of jaws.

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

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 »

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
