Fun podcast with friends bantering, they sometimes get others motives wrong but always a laugh to me had

Hi, just wanted to say thanks for today’s episode. It really helped to know that other people are feeling the disconnect with the situation in Gaza. Also absolutely love the show. Loved the analysis of Deep Space Nine and slavery with Vampires, you’re right it’s not cute to do this on shows....Read full review »

THE best accounting and analysis of the Montgomery boat brawl. It’s Tawny‘s grassy knoll and I’m here for it.
AT2002 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/23
Good god. Don’t drink when listening. Especially and including the ‘Bama Brawl episode. I almost ruined my computer.

Let’s me feel sane in this insane world when obviously racist things are taking place. Update-2023 some good conversations and news about racist stuff. Responding to listener’s calls about incidents that might be racist and maybe even what to do in the moment. Enjoyed some of the snitching on...Read full review »

Andrew thinks LA is racist… He googles “black owned bar” does he see himself?
👁💁🏽‍♂️👏🏽 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/23
I’ve listened to this show for 8 years and am loving it lately more than ever! Tawny and Andrew are delightful to listen to. I especially appreciated the discussion of the Angel Reese reactions in the latest ep.

I would suggest listening to something more constructive like Info Wars.

Always appreciate the updates, and the energy
Heyheysrk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/23
I’m an old-timer who read the entire Tumblr page, up to shortly after the podcast began. I’ve always enjoyed Andrew Ti’s perspectives, and even more Andrew Ti’s and Tawny Newsome’s together. The anthropology is terrific and I love learning from the experiences I haven’t had. But what I value...Read full review »

This show has finally shot itself in the foot. I am always eager to learn more about the experiences of others and I thought this show would be a useful tool. I have listened for several years hoping that there would be improvements. But episode after episode the hosts just laugh at the callers,...Read full review »

This show is great, I really like the hosts, their vibe, their guests, their perspective. I listen every week from Weare, NH. We need you. America needs you.

I always enjoy the show, but I'm especially here for episodes that include Traci! I also have secret dreams of befriending (alternately becoming nemeses with) Andrew and Tawny (and obviously Traci!)Read full review »

So every one star review on this show is the same thing: people who got angry for being outed by racist practices on this show. It’s a great, funny show and if you feel singled out, maybe reconsider the specific behavior they pointed out. If the show makes you furious to your core, maybe ask...Read full review »

Is what Andrew and Tawny do on the weekly while serving up informative and thought provoking stories on modern-day racism. A gem of a podcast, 5 stars.
Tony Bui via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/23/22
Amazingly lighthearted take on racism - in small doses. Perfect for anyone wanting to understand racism from a less formal POV. Great hosts and dope guest.
CGme14 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/21/22
Episode 251 of Who Are These Podcasts did a great review of this pathetic show and skewered this show pretty good. Very satisfying to hear these angry, unappreciative losers called out. Horrible broadcasters, terrible communicators. This stupid show is racist. The hosts are morons.
Mr Blind via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/13/22
Strongly recommend this for any person of colour in need of solidarity, well-meaning white or actual terrible human. Also highly recommend subscribing to the suboptimal bundle - I just listened to Andrew’s singing lesson and was so proud I actually teared up! A damn delight.
Chicken Witch via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/18/22
Yes
Yo Is this Racist? Yes .. This podcast should be canceled. 😂🤣
Nate@$ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/21/22
Kinda hard to take the 1 star reviews seriously when the criticism amounts to “what racism, signed Karen” and “I don’t get this show. Also I have zero sense of humor and/or am white”.
SAN78MD via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/22
Lol
Another pod that fell tf off and is now just LA entertainment ppl patting each other on the back. Ban Americans!!!!!!!!
Rich tech bros ruin everything via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/18/22
No. No it isn't. I listened to this show like 8 years ago and it had different hosts and was funny and to the point there was a specific target they analyzed for racism and assessed it quick and with a lot of humour while keeping it light. I'm not familiar with Andrew outside of this...Read full review »
Nikorp via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/13/22
They talk about racism but manage to make it…fun? That feels weird to say, but it’s true. This is such a great show. Everyone should listen.
Kaitlyn Yang via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/22
Sorry, reviews weren’t allowed on “Yo Can We Live!?” (Subs available through suboptimalpods.com) and I had to get this off my chest. I can’t believe Disney was selling shirts with Dale dabbing. When I went to Disneyworld, I did a meet and greet with Launchpad McQuack, we waited in line for like...Read full review »

This podcast is an incredible gift, I am so grateful! Definitely funny, heartbreaking at times, deeply insightful, and sometimes a lil silly. (in the best way) Also, GIVE Andrew & Tawny your money. bye!
kenny s lou via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/17/22
Do I feel the white guilt. Sure, I do think it’s a good thing. A laugh is also in the cards
The Joelest via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/22
Andrew is by far the worst part of this show. Tawny, the guests, the producers, the over thinking voicemails are all the best thank you! Please get rid of Andrew asap
Keeper2015 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/22
Engaging, enlightening, relating and funny. Hard rec.
nickane0085 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/22
Long time listener, first time reviewer. I love this podcast. I learn a lot, mostly about how not to be a stupid white person BUT ALSO Tawny has lead me to some of my top podcasts. Add to cart is one of my favorite pods those ladies are so funny and balance each other out so well and the stacks...Read full review »

Biased? Probably but these comedians know what’s good and I appreciate comedians who are introspection. I only just somehow looked at their reviews to see so many 1 stars and think those are likely the folks who were court ordered to listened. Sad. But Suboptimal pods? Grand.
Little Vampirette. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/22
Privileged idiots decide what is racist. Targets include light skinned Asians, light skinned black people, and of course light skinned people in general. Just a couple silly youngsters who think that being a victim is the coolest thing in the world. If you enjoy this empty, vapid tat you are the...Read full review »
Mark s Jewett via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/22
I gave this podcast about a dozen listens, and just can't get past the following (much of which was said in others' reviews): 1. Virtually everything is racist to the hosts. They'd probably say that my eating Cherrios with white (fat free) milk is racist (and "fat-ist"). I do...Read full review »
Nebster1234 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/22
I listened to one episode and I am hooked. Thanks for helping me understand a reality I don’t know. Warm fuzzies, hugs, and much respect to you all.
BringBackJolt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/22
I’ve been listening to this podcast for several years now and it’s still as good as ever. Do I have parasocial relationships with the hosts? I don’t wanna talk about it (yes).
AllysonH via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/21
Love hearing the hosts gab and discuss their views on different political/racial topics.
thepleasanthuman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/21
Tawny and Andrew (and guests/producers) manage to balance some super heavy stuff with exasperated gallows humor. The Hollywood insider perspective is very illuminating regarding why stuff doesn’t change and how the faux woke folk perpetuate racism/sexism/cop and gun glorification.
Information madding via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/21
This pod gets the job done, in every way I said before, but not exactly in the way I said before. Since going independent, having less guest, and getting to do their own thing more and more with each passing week, it’s become clearer to me who this is for. This pod is first and foremost for...Read full review »
Jonnydragon88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/21
If you want discussion about race but really struggle with empathy-burnout, this is a good place to start. Sometimes comedy is a great way to cope, and these hosts are talented comedians.
DasAllasIstDeutschland via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/24/21
I love when Andrew shades the callers. Tawny and Andrew are the best host !
Spency1993 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/21
this is a hilarious podcast!!! it’s comedy!!!! just chill out people lol. it’s funny & also a lot of america is racist, so the answer to their “yo is this racist” question, is yes!!!! and it’s a funny take on the medicine y’all need to hear. great pod love you both

Duck around and find out T shirt and or bag
libefo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/21
You people are complete trash let’s say everything is racist bc we are just garbage people that want to just play the perpetual victim. You people are what’s wrong with this country spreading hate and division seriously you’re garbage people
ThtisntWolvie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/03/21
It’s a comedy podcast! I like it a lot! Hooray!
V. Jones via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/21
Omg
I hate these people.
ggjjfgjbvjkg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/21
I tried listening to this pod for a while and wasn’t sure what to make of it. I find the voicemails received interesting, but the hosts provide little meaningful “analysis” of the voicemails. Sometimes Tawny provides counterpoints on why a situation might not be intentionally racist, but for...Read full review »

Really enjoy the show. Keep inviting Matt as a guest on the show!
sneakykikiriki via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/21
I can say these guys try hard, really hard. The problem is they are neither clever or funny, which is bad for a comedy podcast. Maybe they just aren’t funny people and think they are. Everyone one has people in their lives they have to patronize and let them think they are clever. It’s sad to...Read full review »
