Lately, current events are very hard for me to face and process, but I’ve found that Sam and his guests bringing attention to important and serious current news and social issues while acknowledging beauty and joy in our daily lives as well.

Is soothing to me. Smart, insightful questions and discussions are the centerpiece. He asks things I want to know.

The episode about Act Up was eye opening and thoroughly satisfying. Clarified a time I didn’t understand and gives context to current events. And I enjoy listening to Sam.

I have been listening for a few months and each episode is better and better! I have been looking forward to “The Other Black Girl” and the conversation with Zakiya Dalia Harris was insightful and now I am real y ready to read it!

This show is not funny, not clever and not good content. In the most recent episode, we learned that doom-scrolling is “reading” and we heard a (not funny) comparison of the Supreme Court and Real Housewives. The representation of the issues before the court was extremely shallow, opinionated and...Read full review »

It’s been a long, barely tolerable minute; permeated by a mutual log rolling, nerve grating cackles, voice fry, and water-is-wet commentary. Each episode title promises much more than it delivers.

I am tired of media outlets pushing a narrative that promotes crime and violence. Every single place that has ‘reimagined policing’ has seen crime sky rocket. Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, Austin have all seen surges in murder, theft, assault and or crime in general . I am tired of shows...Read full review »

Sam is a fantastic story teller & interviewer. This content is a breath of fresh air among the monotony of covid news. Thank you Sam.

Sam Sanders is the perfect host and always seems to get the best out of the guests and the subjects. What can I say, except this pod makes me happy!
Drookitnim via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/30/21
Love Sam and the show, been listening for 3 years now. However, the repeat episodes are getting to be too much. Please think of new content or no show at all.

Hearing people share their best things always brings me such joy.
I need a mystery via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/21
I normally LOVE Sam, especially for his critical perspective on “sensitive” or “taboo” issues. However, his comment about Gwyneth Paltrow and how she seems like she would be really cool and he could absolutely see himself getting a drink with her really rubbed me the wrong way. As a woman with a...Read full review »

A perfect balance of comedy, current events, and pure joy. Sam and team, you for helping me get through this pandemic.

Sam is my favorite podcast host, and having Ayesha fill in for him was the crossover I never knew I needed. Thank you It’s Been a Minute for an incredible episode ❤️

I feel like Sam is my friend. He’s a great host who asks great questions and knows how to engage good guests :)
Lola Luffnaigle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/21
This was one of my favorite shows, I looked forward to it every week for years. It always got me dancing and laughing out loud. Ever since the covid lockdown last year, it’s as though it became a completely different show. It doesn’t have music anymore. There are so few jokes, very little joy....Read full review »

Sam is very knowledgeable and a great interviewer. He asks thought provoking questions and is able to go deep while offering hope. Super glad I started listening!

Update, March 2021: The Sohla interview was really hard to get through. I have followed the Bon Appétit saga closely, and I have watched Sohla on YouTube, but this interview just made me really dislike her. She constantly contradicted herself, and it was infuriating. I’m sure most of the NPR...Read full review »

Thank you Sam Sanders! I loved that poem! I really appreciate your show and look forward to hearing it every week!

I wonder this because I have that...Read full review »

I love listening to interviews with people that don’t assimilate to the world’s view of gender roles and responsibilities. Your guess are amazing;

Sam Sanders has a great, airy style and Phoebe Bridgers is authentic and a fresh voice. Good for my ears.

Aunt Betty is fully vaccinated! I have tears of joy! Hearing her tell her vaccination story is the best thing that happened to me this week!

Saturdays are not right without Sam and Aunt Betty! His bright openness is unbeatable. He crafts our resilience from show to show. Grateful for this show in the before times, now and into wherever we take this

I love this show so much. Sam (I wanna be on a first-name basis with him!) is whip-smart, empathetic, a great at engaging his guests. His conversations are somehow comforting, even when about things that infuriate me. I hope to someday call and make it onto the best-thing-that-happened this week...Read full review »

I can’t give this podcast enough stars. Sam Sanders is a thoughtful and captivating interviewer. Thank you for your work ❤️

As someone who has spent 20+ years in the fashion business,I looked forward to this episode and the opportunity to hear an informed discussion. Unfortunately, you chose to speak with someone, Robin Givhan, who clearly has little or no direct knowledge or understanding of the industry. The errors...Read full review »

Longtime listener here. This pod is such a force for good in the world, and Sam an ambassador of kindness and goodwill.

I subscribed to this podcast a few weeks ago and had been enjoying it until yesterday until the end of the episode when I heard the incredibly tone deaf comments of the guests, Amber and Lacey. The criticism leveled against Jennifer Lopez and her inaugural performance left me dumbfounded. There...Read full review »

I heard about this podcast through the BLM movement ... and every time I listen now, I smile and laugh.

Friday’s episode segment of the best things that happened to you gave me so much hope after not feeling much hope for a while. Thank you for sharing the beautiful things that are happening.

It’s so easy to get down with out current state but listening to this podcast is a beautiful glimpse of humanity especially the segment where listeners shares something great from their week. Thank you Sam and everyone who works on this podcast.
annie1615120 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/21
My favorite part of Sam’s interviews are when he asks people covering hard/dangerous beats how they are doing. It’s a simple, humanizing question.
pfjaded via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/21
I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Sam’s attitude is uplifting and to hear the good things that have happened to folks during the week makes my day. Thanks for letting us tell you how good it can be even during this difficult time.
KACATX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
Sam provides a unique perspective of what is going on in the world. I appreciate his honest commentary and combining pop culture with serious news to provide a great summary of what is going on in the world the prior week. I also like his more in depth interviews.
allison7564 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/21
Always a fan of the man, and have loved and learned so much since Sam started It’s Been A Minute. The best thing that’s happened to me all year - hiking by Aunt Betty lake in Acadia Nat’l Park over the summer!
