As a hobbyist filmmaker with an interest in how things are made, and the people who make them, this was the show for me. I will listen to them all again!

Great analysis! I hope you cover more David Lynch films in future episodes.

Most episodes ive listened to from this podcast are worthy of five stars. But the recent episode about jackass is worth many many more. So full of insight, empathy and life it just set my brain on fire and made me cry. In a good way! Thank you!

The title says it all. This is my new favorite podcast! Funny, insightful, well-researched conversations between brilliant filmmakers and storytellers about some of my favorite movies? What’s not to love? I feel like I come away from every episode a little smarter, a little happier, and a little...Read full review »

Every episode leaves you energised, inspired and a better creator.

And I do! So much research and prep goes into each episode. This is quality work. It’s fascinating. April’s awesome. The range of women she speakers to is great. Love to have this podcast each week as part of my routine.

One of the few shows I look forward to every week. Sharp insights, fascinating guests from across the medium. If you love the moving image, you will love Switchblade Sisters.
wonderful_lizard via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/20
I have suggested this podcast to every single one of my friends. I love film, genre, and lady creators, and this is an excellent podcast about ALL THOSE THINGS! If you like those things too, give this a try! The interviews are always fun, always about movie-love, and always willing to discuss the...Read full review »

Decided to use this time to watch a movie I haven’t seen each day. This has been the perfect Podcast find those movies!!!!
D-Town-IM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/20
My favorite part of this show is hearing the thoughts and feelings of woman in the business on movies I’ve loved for years (like Scream and Jennifer’s Body). They’re movies I’ve seen too many times to count but each episode of this show gives me something new to think about for each of them. I’m...Read full review »

Wonderful show about the craft of making movies and how genre movies drive the medium forward. Amazing guests with perspectives that have changed the way I look at movies. Anchored by the talented and funny April Wolfe, this show is a must listen for film fans.
Aceeven via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/20
Been listening here & there for a while. Every day of the past week I’ve thought about something I enjoyed or related to from the Cathy Yan/Mad Max episode. Plus it really enhanced my enjoyment Birds of Prey!! The rubber really meets the road when it comes to guest plugs here. Every episode...Read full review »

This is an endlessly entertaining show with incredible hosts. One of the greats!
Madcoil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/20
This podcast compares seemingly disparate films in a really interesting way - I always learn something, and often treat it as simply a great way to get film recommendations! The only saddening thing is when each episode ends (I could happily listen for at least 30 more minutes each time)....Read full review »
Jacks_Reviews via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/23/19
Thank you so much for a lively, intelligent, and frequently funny podcast that celebrates genre cinema from a female perspective! I enjoy the diverse guests and appreciate exploring new films and re-examining films I might have dismissed in the past. I always smile when I see that a new episode...Read full review »

Heard about this podcast from April Wolfe's appearance on The Bechdel Cast. After listening to one episode I was immediately hooked. I love the premise and format of this podcast and Wolfe is such an amazing host. There's no "dead air", she allows the guest to speak, and all...Read full review »
The Dude Abides 95 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/19
Love the director interviews and the random fun facts April brings up about cult movies. She needs to write a book summarizing these facts! If you love hearing movie facts about movies you love and deep discussions about it, this is for you
corderor via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/29/19
This podcast feels really special. Gabriela’s episode instantly became one of my favorites. She has such Ana amazing story and I loved hearing her talk about Psycho, I hope she comes back on soon. I am so glad this podcast exists and that maximum fun exists. Everyone should subscribe
Vfd42 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/19
I discovered this podcast via Who Shot Ya! podcast; where April Wolfe, host of this show, was a regular contributor. April has a relaxed conversational interview style and always has interesting filmmakers, some I was not previously aware of, as guests; which makes for an enjoyable listen. The...Read full review »

For the last two weeks I have been telling my friends again and again about the movie Ravenous and suddenly the Ravenous episode drops on Switchblade Sisters. I am envious of anybody who learned about that movie by listening to that episode. This is a really informative and very entertaining...Read full review »

I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH!!! I don’t think I’ve ever said this before (and let’s be honest, I’ll probably never say it again) but this show makes me a little bummed to be a male filmmaker, because I’ll never get to be on it (I know, cry me a river white straight American man). Thank you April!
hj_filmfan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/19
Smart women talking about fascinating and weird movies. This speaks right to me. I love it so much!
EditorMomLady via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/19
After just discovering this podcast recently, I knew that I had to sit down and write a review. Hearing women not only talk about their favourite genre films, why they love them and their importance, we also get insight into the female side of film making, writing, producing etc from which I just...Read full review »

As a straight white male who does not work in the film industry, I often find myself thinking about what genre movie I will pick when I am on the show - then I remember I never will be and how amazing that is! April is an talented interviewer and meticulous researcher who is also one of my very...Read full review »

I waited far too long to give Switchblade Sisters a listen. It’s lots of fun listening to April and her awesome guests talk about my favorite movies and introduce me to new ones.
BeeBeaBeeBea via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/04/19
As a born again screenwriter, Switchblade Sisters is the welcoming crash course in the filmmaker’s perspective I need. April’s work has introduced me to so many intelligent women filmmakers & I love learning from all their work as well. Thanks!
The Other Tim Lynch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/19
After hearing the ads for Switchblade Sisters for the past few years, I finally decided to listen to this absolutely INCREDIBLE podcast. Between April Wolfe and her amazing guests, I feel like I’m back in college again. I wish I could’ve pursued a film degree, but I’m getting all of my credit...Read full review »

If you love discussions of process, this is for you. I also really appreciate this podcast for taking their subjects seriously, digging deep into technique and subtext, while being unselfconsciously excited about filmmaking. There are so many shows that talk about what they hate, it’s cool to...Read full review »

Oh my godddd, as a lady who loves movies that don't always love me back, it's fantastic to hear women both gush and honestly discuss issue with the genres that are close to my heart, noir, crime, horror, sci-fi. Also fantastic to hear unapologetic, unblushing, unembarassed discussions of...Read full review »

I feel like I’ve been listening to A LOT of podcasts searching for something I wasn’t quite sure of what it was. Until I found Switchblade Sisters 💙 Thanks for producing such amazing content.

April is a GREAT interviewer, and I'm always adding things to my watchlist. I'm trying to watch more films by female filmmakers, and this is a great resource.Read full review »

Such an awesome podcast for those who love genre movies and filmmaking! Great discussions that are so well-researched, fun, and passionate about movies that can sometimes be seen as lesser (and aren’t!). It’s also introduced me to new movies and filmmakers that I’m now so glad to know of because...Read full review »

Cult films are discussed by host April Wolfe and a host of amazing female filmmakers. Really fun and insightful. Always entertaining.

Love this podcast! I feel like it was made just for me? Love April Wolfe. Love the logo. This switchblade sister wants a t-shirt to shout it to the world.
E Marie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/19
My new favorite podcast. I had a difficult time finding an in-depth podcast on film of modern AND retro favorites that didn’t lose my attention, but I have finally found the one. April Wolfe is an engaging and informative host who does an excellent job of asking the perfect questions to the...Read full review »
irlmorgue via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/15/19
I can’t remember exactly how I heard about this podcast but I subscribed and went several weeks before actually listening to an episode and quite frankly it was because without listening to a single episode I’d already assumed it was a bunch of smarmy hot takes, or disproportionately enthusiastic...Read full review »

April Wolfe is a fresh voice in film criticism (thank god) who brings incredible research, thoughtful questions and wonderful guests to her show. She has exposed me to artists I might not have known or given much thought to otherwise, and she helps contribute to the growing legitimacy of genre...Read full review »

Nothing makes my Fridays like putting on a fresh Switchblade Sisters! I'm not well versed in film and nine times out of ten I haven't seen the films discussed but, like April says, that never stops me from listening. More than anything else I love hearing art and womanhood discussed in a...Read full review »
Grace (Under Pressure) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/19
It makes me so happy to hear so many women film directors on this podcast. The first episode I chose to listen to when I first discovered this show was with Vicky Jewson and I went to watch her film Close on Netflix as soon as I finished listening. There are so many genre films by women waiting...Read full review »

It took me way too long to start listening to this. I've loved April Wolfe's writing for a long time in (the late lamented) LA Weekly and other places. I loved finding out how funny and smart she was listening to "Who Shot Ya" so I should have started listening to this as soon...Read full review »
Daniel8383 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/19
One of my favorite podcasts without a doubt. April always invites the most interesting guests who always have so much insight to offer. This podcast might have completely changed the way I approach film and I love it to death for that.
_lucas_m01 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/19
I love this show, y’all teach me rad insider stuff not only about the genre movies I love but the super talented professional ladies you feature who are struggling with their own industry and creative obstacles.

Movies are an essential escape for me, and genre films in particular are an amazing medium to explore social, political, and moral topics.

Movie critic April Wolfe and a movie industry guest dissect a genre classic every week. They go deep on production details. It all comes from a place of deep love for the art they cover and I learn something new every week.
rivet-trek-EVICT via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 02/20/19
It’s hard enough to find movie podcasts hosted by women but even harder to find one about horror. Women who love horror are always seen as oddities but I’ve loved it all my life and now I know I’m not alone. This podcast has given me insight into why horror speaks to me and other woman as well...Read full review »
