“As a female co-host of an all-female podcast, this spoke to me immediately. These women are intelligent, charming, and fun. She Who Persisted takes on the issues that women face every day, and share their struggles and triumphs. I feel hopeful for our future knowing these professional women are out in the world inspiring change and making their mark. If you want to feel like you’re on a badass team with which you can crush the patriarchy, this is your show.”

“Interesting conversation that touches on gender roles and sexism in academia. This is an important discussion that needs to be had as it sheds light on the notion that there are “certain things” women should be doing and the disparities in education. These women do a great job of explaining the hardships women face in a way that’s unpretentious and sympathetic.”

“This episode was as hilarious as it was insightful. Starting off with the best movies of their birth years Jason and Rebecca make me feel not as old as I usually do. When they moved onto their movie reviews of Beauty and the Beast, Raw, and Personal Shopper, the laughs continued. We learn that Munchausen’s and Stockholm Syndrome are different, French Veterinarians know how to party, and Kristen Stewart is not a chameleon. I loved every second of the show.”
–More Gooder Than Podcast
“I really LOVE the audio quality on this show. Super professional! Great dynamic between the hosts as well. One thing I like most of all is that you get a lot of people who try and do reviews but have no knowledge of the thing they are reviewing. I love how knowledgeable they are and how they also incorporate clips from the movie they review to animate the show a bit. Great stuff!”
–Blaze Entertainment Podcast
“The hosts have wonderful chemistry and a vast knowledge of all things movie. Pushed me into checking out a Kristen Stewart movie, something I never wanted to do, and was pleasantly surprised. If you want to know what is going on in the movie world, check them out. You won’t be disappointed.”
