While I loved the interviews Emily did on her old podcast, Primetime is great and I'd just like more of it! Longer episodes and more of them🤗Read full review »

Overly politicized and partisan. Acts like Washington is the center of everything.

Excited to hear more from Emily!

Hi I love the show and would enjoy listening more if the logo was corrected to not deadname Emily!

This is a great series— please change the title card so you are not dead-naming Emily.

This is the best podcast of this year. The only problem is there are few episodes (I need more!). If you like politics and communication, you’re going to love it!

I've been a big fan of Emily's writing and other work for a long time. I found her previous podcast "I Think You're Interesting" rather late in its run, but have really enjoyed going through the episode archives. The first season of "Primetime" was a great follow-up,...Read full review »

This was a different take on the presidency and contained interesting comparisons between presidents of several generations. However, I always wanted them to go a bit deeper. Often they would mention a tidbit of information and then leave it sitting there. Maybe a time constraint? Still an...Read full review »

More Fox than Vox.

Really enjoyed each episode. Historical information strongly relates to current situation. Highly recommend!!’
Harryprince1234 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/19
Was excited to listen to each ep! Great mix of pop culture and history, and also current events. I remembered pieces of these stories, but this show brings it all together very nicely and puts them into context.

Really enjoying this podcast from the Netherlands!! Would love if the episodes could be slightly longer!
PoliticalBee via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 06/14/19
Really enjoyed the series! Season 1 was great but it felt like it really flew by. Bring on more eps! One question on word choice: Governacy instead of Governorship in the season 1 finale episode? I’ve never heard governacy before as a word.

As much as I enjoy podcasts, some go on so long they overstay their welcome. Not so with Primetime. Each episode has a theme and often has insightful guests giving historical context. My favorite episodes were on the fictional Hilary Clinton on TV and the one that dealt with the Murphy Brown...Read full review »

Really a different take on what’s going on currently.

Both this and the “I Think You’re Interesting” podcast that VanDerWerff has done earlier are great and tell amazing stories in ways I wish more podcasts could. I wish the episodes of Primetime were longer, or that there would be more after this finale. Such a fun and informational show.

This is a terrifically informative podcast about the history of tv and how it’s shaped wider conversations in society. The host is very knowledgeable and pulls in the ideal guests on any subject.

Bring on more topics. Very insightful and educational
Margarita Espinosa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
This show is great. Explores interesting stories but it always feels like they end the show before getting to deep and cutting ideas. Keep waiting for it to get to strong points.

I absolutely love this podcast! It’s a really great listen but I wish it was longer (and I rarely say that about podcasts!) Love it!
savannahnicholo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/19
The first episode of this podcast was really quite good and left me hopeful that even though this was a Vox podcast, it still might remain mostly accurate and not overly tendentious. Unfortunately the most recent podcasts have been inaccurate and fallen into the gripes that most liberal podcasts...Read full review »

I found Emily’s previous podcast (I Think You’re Interesting) not long before it ended. I was an instant fan, and I have sorely missed it. I enjoy reading Emily’s work on Vox, but it was a delight to listen in on her insightful interviews and extended musings on the podcast. Emily is a true TV...Read full review »

This is a good podcast. Might I recommend a season on the police?
Jperú via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/19
This podcast makes me angry because as a politics/pop culture nerd, this is the type of podcast I would want to make, but I would never be able to do it as well as this.

I’ve loved Todd’s work since his AV Club days
cc28 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/19
A fun, insightful, succinct dive into how TV shapes our world. The first episode, on the West Wing and views of the presidency, was particularly strong in examining how the show fit in context with the times, including an important critique of what it missed and ignored. Worth your time, and on...Read full review »

Enjoyed first episode and look forward to listening to the one focused on “24.” Can’t wait to see additional ones looking at “Designated Survivor,” “House of Cards,” “Scandal” (Olivia Pope = Michael Cohen?), “The Good Wife,” “Veep” and “Madam Secretary” and on and on and on. Thanks!

Really looking forward to having this nuanced and thoughtful culture writer in my earholes again every week
ReginaldBunburry via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/10/19
The show is interesting and is off to a great start. What a great subject for a podcast. Can’t wait to listen to the next episode.
