So many that it’s hard to listen.

Now I like him. I look forward to popcast deluxe in particular.

I love some of their takes, but I cringe every time I hear a 50 year old man use slang terms like “facts” and “tbh”

Been listening to this podcast since 2016 and can tell you right now that the majority of the one stars are all from BTS stans after an episode about Jung Kook’s solo career. LET ME BE CLEAR that Jung Kook IS my bias but I can at least handle critique and criticism of my fave without losing my...Read full review »

NJ prep school boys Obsessed with middle class Chicago boys larping as thugs.

The host says Justin Bieber (a white Canadian) singing in Spanish is great but a Korean singing English is “a step too far.”

Did not like their opinions about Jungkook and BTS- racist and extremely uninformed.

As an Asian American who’s been a subscriber of NYT since the 90s, I’m beyond disappointed. I’m outright disgusted by the xenophobia and hateful perspective. Everyone’s entitled to have an opinion but coming from the Times is shocking. This show has had a history of questionable perspectives, but...Read full review »

Racism thinly Vailed as critiques. Opinions shouldn’t be spoken as facts.
Nbelle7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/23
Thinly-veiled racism and xenophobia. Why are these bigots given such a platform?
Ziggy Morrison via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/23
Perplexingly bigoted opinions.
Lorena Therese via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/23
If everyone listened to Popcast then nothing bad would ever happen again

Spouting of ignorant and racist nonsense. Who hired these idiots? Really just hitting a new low. I hope they clean house and get rid of these fools.
Emmy0128 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/23
Came to try it out. Disappointingly narrow perspective and pretty uninteresting. Listen to this if you want to hear stereotypes and limitations of people as global artists to produce things outside of the “norm.”
Disappointed917 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/23
Never listened but I’m sure these guys are great and informed
QONYC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/23
It’s really laughable that this podcast had to bring bitter Kpop fans of YG to do a hit piece on BTS. I guess even in music, the NYT can’t find credible commentators, “journalists”, or “critics”. These people that the NYT finds to fill their company should spend more time doing their jobs and...Read full review »

Literally at a lost, the audacity
Breebree1016 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/23
Do better NYT, in your music research. Make sure the people you have on podcasts are actually non racist, unbiased reviewers.
DahleMama via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/23
Any research will tell you these people are biased and prejudiced.
nickname13317 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/23
Jon and Kara from the latest episode proudly presented themselves to be racists. English language does not belong to America, and Americans have welcomed many European singers to sing in English as a foreign language. Suddenly a Korean (asian by race) act sings in English and it is a problem....Read full review »

Truly a terrible and uninformed podcast episode that touts racist ideas as informed commentary.
ZNM789 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/23
Bunch of white Americans talking about Koreans losing their “Korean identity”. Pure stereotypes and racism.
Sami18888 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/05/23
Disgusting
czhenj95 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/23
Latest episode about KPop essentially telling Korean musicians to stop singing in English was extremely offensive. Very blatantly racist and xenophobic. Is this what the NY Times passes off for content now? Sad to see such a decline in content quality from what once was a quality source for good...Read full review »
KPopNYC via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/05/23
Americans acting like they discovered pop. Do they know Max Martin and Denniz Pop are SWEDISH and wrote most pop music sung by US artists?
Isateresa via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 12/05/23
Proof that just because you have an opinion, doesn’t mean you need to share it
Inydvjk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/23
Tone deaf, racist, no critical thinking or depth. They basically just bark.
Ang333l via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 12/05/23
The latest podcast on kpop is super xenophobic and racist.
Jofutofu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/23
I don’t think this podcast is for people who actually love music. It exemplifies the tiresome white American Gen X desire to be contrarian and to not embrace what’s popular and mainstream, which is ironic for a podcast about pop music. The episode about Jung Kook of BTS’ solo album and BTS’...Read full review »
AMM MN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/23
You are a joke, complete trash, racist, xenophobic. A supposed fan of K-pop that disrespects Koreans (I am Korean) and literally has no idea what you’re talking about. Your opinion does not deserve to be heard. You two are disgusting humans who need to lose your livelihood and go live in a trash...Read full review »
PopcastistrashBTSFOREVER via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
How does one review an album they admitted they didn’t even listen to? Presumptuous drivel and just plain lazy. Just wow, NYT
epow17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
The last episode uploaded on Friday is full of xenophobia and racism. They are criticising an artist, a band and their work only because are Korean and not Americans. It is absurd that in 2023 a platform allowed this type of content.
Inachis97 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/04/23
It's frustrating that a New York Times podcast, as the paper of record, lacks journalistic rigor in its recent episode on K-Pop. The host and guest make numerous assertions without proper sources, data, or expert insight. My primary concern is the episode's ethnocentric perspective rooted...Read full review »
Swtn3ss via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 12/04/23
I am appalled at the amount of xenophobia and racism that exudes itself throughout this podcast episode. I am going to give some of my grievances here 1. The podcast starts by calling BTS fans, ARMY, as crazy. This is a very infantile remark because the hosts knew very well that what they were...Read full review »

I wish you had someone on who could intelligently comment on the historical context as to why the English language is so important to the Korean culture and thus k-pop instead of lazily revisiting old racist tropes on how foreign Asians are.
Wenderific via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
Let me save you some time, don’t bother listening to this.
Vivienne Therese via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
Weird opinions expressed here about Asian artists, and whether they should release songs in English. You’d never hear that discourse about white artists who are from France, or Spain. The only explanation is that the host is racist.
YogaBunnyInTraining via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/04/23
Just a group of hateful people who don’t know anything about music
marixaGarza via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
I guess New York Times supports racism and xenophobia if they allowed the latest episode (450) of this podcast to be aired. Good job!
ElloharE via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/04/23
The most recent episode of this show was shockingly racist and xenophobic. The host invited on a white American k-pop stan, with no actual musical knowledge or expertise, to serve as a so-called “expert” on k-pop. This person is literally just a typical biased fan pretending to be some kind of...Read full review »
SweetPeaInMN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
A completely xenophobic and racist take on Asian musicians that wish to break barriers. Hate to break it to you, but the English-language is not owned by white America (you don’t need a history book to understand that). Suggesting that Asian artists should stick to their Asian language… I pray...Read full review »

The last podcast on Jungkook and Kpop is disrespectful, xenophobic, and completely unnecessary
Anj7591 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
Xenophobic trash.
WeezieBear7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
These people wouldn’t know what K POP was if it slapped them in the face. This podcast is white people talking about something they have taken no time to understand and act like their opinions make them experts. The commentary is dripping with xenophobic phrases and acting like singing in English...Read full review »

Absolutely xenophobic and racist takes. Deeply disappointed in the NYT for approving this content and allowing these show hosts to tarnish it name. Don’t bother listening.
lynzzz7 via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 12/04/23
Rude, xenophobic, racist, and overall terrible. a waste of airwaves.
poppyreviews via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
Pure ignorance and racism. Envy. Empty arguments.
GismarL. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
Not only is the podcast uninteresting, the host and guest lean hard into othering Asian and racist tropes.
