Mike and Sarah, and now Sarah and guests are the perfect podcast hosts for developing an intense but not creepy parasocial relationship. The content? Fascinating. The jokes? Corny but good. The millennial ennui? Always present and soothing. Listen to the back catalogue! Listen to the podcasts of...Read full review »

Really great show to have in your feed. Fascinating topics handled with compassion and humor.

Loved the episode with Blair Braverman. Your friendship shines through in your conversation.

This podcast brings me more joy than most things out there. Can’t wait for Michelle Remembers 6!
MEbert2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/22
I’m binge-ing on the back episodes. Great, detailed perspectives on all the topics, many of which sound silly but all of which turn out to be fascinating. I particularly enjoy is quick humor of the two extremely intelligent hosts. And HOW does Michael Hobbes find time to do all that research? ...Read full review »

Great podcast. Funny, compassionate, well-researched, and politically informed. Are you ever going to finish the OJ series? I do miss the co-host spark with Mike, but when you have good guests on (like the Martha Stewart episode) it provides a really nice variety!

Martha Stewart episode was my first. LOVED parsing out the fantasies of home making. Something I’ve been struggling to put to words. Subscribed. Would love if you dig into this topic more. Like cottagecore and pastoralism.

finished the martha stewart ep just now and dang i want an entire ep series. i just really like this show, and i feel like the host(s) come from a place of compassion for their subjects. worth a listen, definitely if you like a conversational “listening to your friends” kind of vibe.

This podcast is my safe space. I learn so much and Sarah’s practice of radical empathy really speaks to me. I would listen to it endlessly if I could.
bethanydc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/22
So far I’ve enjoyed listening to this podcast. The hosts and guests are well spoken and informed. The only issue I have is that the hosts and guests give a very biased account of every subject they cover. I get it, but I like to learn for the sake of learning, not for the sake of confirming my...Read full review »

YWA has been great way to start discovering topics over the last few years - the episodes would act as a primer, building your knowledge from the ground up while also clearing up common misconceptions. There was a sense of drive, relevance and urgency behind each episode, even where the topics...Read full review »

I am a long time listener and patreon member. I enjoy Sarah’s takes and love the range of topics covered. Saying that, I have found recent episodes hard to follow. Personally I preferred the old format of a more structured conversation. I am not American so for me it was helpful when the...Read full review »

I LOVED the Martha Stewart episode!! It was like the most interesting history lesson on gender roles and culture through out the 19th and 2th centuries. Listen to this show for sure!
Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrooooop via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/22
i so look forward to this podcast Sarah!! thank you!

I love this show, and I love Sara’s spirit. You make me laugh and open my mind to other ways of seeing things.
Sheena Y. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/18/22
Show spiraled downwards as soon as Michael left. Guests on the show try too hard to be likable, relatable, or even funny and it just ends up sounding very cringe and awkward. I think they need to workshop this podcast because it’s not working anymore.
Murphy91L via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/22
The sarcasm and demonstrative lack of willingness to understand people and ideas from the past ruins a show that might actually provide helpful information. The host is a know-it-all — and her supercilious, judgmental presentation have driven me away for a second time.
Cannot enter a nickname via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/22
True crime episode was literally the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard in a long time. Literally get actual experts on the topic and not some random valley girl thinking that the world is just rainbows and butterflies. Ridiculous. Lost a new follower
sanselero via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/22
The confirmation biased on this podcast is so glaringly evident that it is hard to listen about truly interesting topics. The hate that flows from these people shading everything they say is shocking, there is no truth to much of what they say. If you have a brain, do yourself a favor, just skip....Read full review »

If you really want to know the truth about the OJ trial, watch the Court TV docuseries OJ25. It’s the only objective and truthful account of the trial. You’re Wrong About just reinforces the black brute narrative, stans Marcia Clark despite her white feminism, gives genocidal racist Mark Fuhrman...Read full review »

Hi I don’t usually write reviews but the latest episode helped me word something about this podcast that felt important - it is a place to experience grief without a call to retribution. A much needed thing in a culture that allows so little space for grief and often uses the few moments of grief...Read full review »
notmeanipromise via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/22
This podcast is by far my favorite one! I just love the topics, Sarah’s and Mike‘s voices and the whole vibe of the show. The Princess Diana episodes were my first ones and they made me fall in love with You‘re Wrong About.
dajanap97 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 06/12/22
I learned of this podcast through an On the Media episode, and I really admire the concept. Execution is quite frankly horrible. The host, Sarah, gets in the way of the message that’s trying to be conveyed. Her jokes are not funny, and often shows she does not really understand the underlying...Read full review »

Guys. Love your podcast but, 11 episodes and counting, on OJ? Almost two years now? I cant. It’s too many slices. Is it too late for an OJ specific spinoff podcast, and we get our old YWA back? Sorry to be That Person. Just had to get it off my chest. Updated to add: unfortunately the show isnt...Read full review »

Show is interesting. Especially, as a genx’er listening to a millennial perspective. Unfortunately, the hosts let too much of their political bias bleed through.
coomer c via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/22
This is a great podcast if you love evidence-based thinking - and it’s desperately needed at a time when so many of us don’t know how to think critically. However, I ultimately unfollowed today after Sarah brought on an Iditarod dog musher as a guest. There’s an undeniable cruelty to “the sport”...Read full review »

Incredibly biased and often intellectually dishonest.

We are gonna need some turtle merch after the most recent episode

5/5
One of my favourite podcasts. The hosts have great banter and address interesting topics in an engaging capacity.
Nika SW via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/07/22
The best researched, most interesting, best binge-for-hours listening for me since Radiolab! 10/10 stars - I so appreciate the hosts abilities to inform from an unbiased & open point of view.
sproutandbean via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/07/22
The addition of guests every ep has completely changed the nature of the show, especially since almost of all them don’t do the researched walkthrough of a misremembered event (which was the show’s whole premise). Now it feels less like “you’re wrong about this” and more like “let’s have a...Read full review »

This podcast is a DELIGHT. Sarah Martin is very impressive and I agree with everything she says in a ‘couldn’t have said it better myself’ way. Mike’s research and point of view was a great addition, but I also appreciate the guest speakers when he left. Podcast still slaps. In a time when...Read full review »

This is my new favorite podcast! I feel 10 times smarter listening to you, Mike and your guests. I don’t normally listen to podcasts on the weekends but I am going out of my way to listen to yours!
agoulet710 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/22
I definitely miss Sarah and Mike’s hosting chemistry. I hope Sarah finds a permanent cohost instead of having a different guest each episode so this pod can get back in its groove. That being said, Sarah is brilliant and I still love everything she does.
laborhistorydude via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/22
Love the chemistry love the topics. So much great info delivered in an entertaining and engaging way. Love Sarah’s sense of humour and laugh.

Love the work you are doing!! I’ve learned so much, thank you ❤️
CleoP1Tra via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/22
Big fan of this show. Love the two hosts. Sometimes they make errors, but that happens. The only reason I really remove a star is that the episode on Monica Lewinsky seems surprisingly mean towards her in a way that doesn’t gel with their viewpoint on similar women from the 90s - just say you...Read full review »

This was my favorite podcast for a long time. The combination of Sarah Marshall and Michael Hobbs was perfect. It was like listening in to the smartest and most thoughtful people in the room having a funny and insightful conversation. Now that Hobbs has moved on, there have been a series of guest...Read full review »

Very entertaining, and often informative. However, if I learned anything from this show, always double check and never regurgitate info you’ve heard from others as facts(even from this show).

Hey Sarah! I don’t know if you’ll see this but I downloaded the Apple podcasts app just to write to you to say that the way you consistently and immediately respond with unadulterated compassion and unconditional positive regard to every being has healed me and taught me. I’m grateful you exist...Read full review »

I swore it started when the intro music changed. I feel like it has lost its way and is a completely different podcast now.

And with fascinating stories, nothing could be better ☺️
Wylizzle via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 05/25/22
When I started listening to this show, it felt mostly like an experiment in investigative research. The DC Sniper episodes, The Diana Series, and the shows about the Newsboy strikes are all examples of how expertly Mike and Sarah would unravel a narrative and reorganize the moving parts to reveal...Read full review »

The hosts have great chemistry, share same thought provoking questions and feedback. So easy to listen along to. Extremely interesting and well put together

also very enjoyable to listen to them unpack random things, laughter :)

Infectious laughter, witty banter, compassion, thoughtfulness, critical thinking
4089257 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/22/22
I like the idea of revisiting events in the public consciousness and taking a fresh look to see what was hidden or missed. But then, they often get so many details wrong or add something completely out of left field. Some shows are definitely better than others. I’m still trying to figure out...Read full review »
esmesqualor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/22
Would be a good premise if it’s wasn’t for all the smug arrogant remarks that dominate each episode. Poor excuse of journalism.
Randy Bobanski via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/17/22
I do miss Mike. Sarah is great but the vocal fry and dry voice take some getting used to. However, it’s a very intelligent podcast even without Mike. I always learn something. I appreciate Sarah’s kindness, she’s snarky at times but never mean spirited.
