More than anything else, You’re Wrong About is a public service, although with none of the bureaucratic dullness that that phrase implies. Hobbes and Marshall are a pair on a mission, each week rescuing the unfairly discarded from the scrapheap of history, brushing them off, and sending them on their way with words of encouragement. In the process, we as an audience learn so much: how to consider these sensationalized public figures as real human beings, how what we think of as “facts” are often the result of shoddy reporting and contemporaneous bigotry, how easily these “facts” become widely accepted as the truth. In a world in dire need of both more empathy and better media literacy, You’re Wrong About is a vital, engaging listen.

Ok I love this! The hosts pick a topic and go super deep on it to help bring to life more context that didn’t hit the headlines. I powered my way through the Princess Diana mini-series and learned SO MUCH MORE about what went on behind the scenes of the royal family. Queuing up the OJ Simpson episodes next, and Koko The Gorilla.

Im currently listening to the OJ episodes and they are great! Obviously the story itself is fascinating, but I’m very much enjoying the way they present it

I’m right in the middle of the OJ episodes which on their own are fascinating but generally this podcasts takes historical events, often criminal but sometimes more systemic issues like corporate culture and shines a light on it that totally flips the issue and makes you wonder why at the time you didn’t see it this way. Love it you should definitely listen!
