Working my way through season 9 and it is nice to hear historical fact being reported where lesbians and gays get the credit they deserve - thankfully trans activists have not been shoehorned into the story claiming a part of history that doesn’t belong to them.

I don’t like how they put selective episodes behind a paywall. For example, the whole first season is available except the last ep. Which, I mean, do your thing, but it doesn’t make me want to listen to any more since I’m worried I won’t be able to hear the ending. Other slate podcasts offset...Read full review »

Enjoying this and looking forward for more!

Season 9 is about the fight for gay rights. And the parallel with the current anti-trans hate sweeping the nation is chilling! Let’s hope we as a nation have learned from the prior fight for gay rights and motivate EVERYONE to stand up NOW and fight for trans rights!

The podcast Slow Burn is great, but they keep trashing the feed with garbage podcasts they can’t get anyone to listen to. Decoder Ring is absolutely awful. People talking about things they know nothing about and putting some stupid modern interpretation on it. They have also stuck One Year in the...Read full review »

Each season is a great trip to the past whether it’s a decade I lived in or not.

First the childhood acquaintance that reports with obvious amusement that Thomas was a nerd and bullied. Then we have the college acquaintance who chuckles when he says Thomas had no game with women. Then we have the ex girlfriend who says he was a drunk and wore shabby clothes and liked porn...Read full review »

Stop antisemitism

I love this podcast. However, Slate keeping the ‘Roe v Wade’ season behind a paywall is pretty counterintuitive to making that season in the first place. Don’t yall want people to learn this history?

I just listened to the series on Clarence Thomas. This was a disturbing display in unhinged bias and character assassination dressed up as investigative reporting. What should be a fascinating exploration of a complex life, with all Justice Thomas’ achievements and faults, warts and all, was a...Read full review »

Absolutely disgusting to allow Zionist ads on your show. Shame on you.

Mislabeling is a Liberal trend. Reproductive rights? To reproduce something is to produce something again or to generate (offspring) by sexual or asexual means. Abortion is the opposite of “Reproductive.” This is not an opinion but a scientific fact.

S2 and S8 phenomenal. Some of the others I struggled to enjoy as much. But a very thoughtful, nuanced, well researched podcast.

Great show - keep it up thanks

I realized as a kid that the hearings were bogus and made me furious. I was an adolescent and yelled back at the TV that “SHE was the one who was electronically lynched, not HIM”. Having more diversity in the media has helped SOME but clearly isn’t enough in the era of “grab ‘em by the p*ssy” and...Read full review »

Liberal racism is alive and well, and this podcast proves it.

Season 3: Great podcast about the story of Rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G., „Biggy“ Smalls. Great research, storytelling, host and voice, intelligent and insightful cultural and social analysis. I loved listen to this podcast and find it expectional. All Podcast should hold...Read full review »

Podcast content is OK, but I’d sure like it more if it didn’t seem to skip chunks of content and repeat other parts. Doesn’t happen to me on any other podcast.
FYouRivalz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/23
The episodes that you don’t need a subscription for freeze about 28 to 32 minutes into the episode and will not play any further.The content is great, but it doesn’t matter if you can’t listen to it.

I got really into season 3, but the last two episodes are behind a paywall so you can finish it without paying $15. They did a really good job and had great content. Would have been a 5 star rating if I could finish.

Most of Seasons 1-4 are subjected to random repeated content, only half episodes playing, episodes not playing at all. The content is great but if I can’t hear it I am frustrated.

I was 20 when Anita Hill testified at Thomas’ confirmation hearings. I remember being outraged that they didn’t believe her but was too young, too inexperienced in the world to really take on the full emotional load of what happened. I am now staring down the barrel of 52 and have practiced as...Read full review »

The last two episodes only available to subscribers! How will I ever know how watergate ends!!!
lordemsworth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/23
I appreciated the respect given to all people interviewed for this, especially Thomas’s mother. The story is upsetting on many fronts but very important documentation of something we should all pay attention to.

As always the left media can’t have any conversation with out brining up trump and their hatred towards him stick to the subject. Apparently if it’s a fetus it can die but calling it a baby is too far. It’s a left wing hit piece but what else is new they play to the audience’s ignorance for...Read full review »

Joel’s voice is great. This story about Clarence Thomas was very informative. I am happy I tuned in. Every episode was narrated great.

As a slate plus member of several years, i can’t seem to get access to the exclusive content for this series. It’s not included in the overarching, and quite messy, Slate Plus podcast hub, and I can’t seem to login to my account through here. 😩 any help would be appreciated!

One star is man try to find any way possible to make this person look bad wonder why is it because he was a conservative and not a Democrat? Just confused, unhappy with the podcast.

I cannot understand why people can’t figure out how to respect people you disagree with. You don’t have to like him, but have some respect
LordFrieza91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/23
Insightful and informative Thank you for reporting
rudyard circle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/23
Appreciate you for your work on all of the Slow Burn podcasts you have hosted!! Thank you again and keep up the good work… Also, as Josh stated, Episode 3 was truly a BANGER!!!
cpaige1911 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/23
Edit to include newest season: Clarence Thomas and Kegstand Kavanaugh should have never been sworn in as Supreme Court Justices. People who dismiss women as casually and caustically as they do, do not deserve a mantle that allows them to make decisions over whether we should have rights over our...Read full review »

This was such an interesting, compassionate, detailed and incredibly well presented “story”. Understanding Justices Thomas’ journey does not make me agree with him any more, but it does help me to understand him a bit better. Great reporting. Recommending this to many friends.

Good show, if you are non-black or a sell out you will probably think it’s “racist” about black ppl calling out a black man who hates black ppl

Listening to season eight about Clarence Thomas as a regular listener seemed very incomplete. I missed out of half of the story because I would have to pay for those special episodes, and the last episode just seem to hang in the air.
clothlady via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/23
Life was tough for a black person in the south all those years ago. What Mr Thomas’ experiences as a young man is what made him who he is today. Why can’t people judge people by their character instead of their color. I still enjoy your podcast because I like to hear what the other side has to...Read full review »
