Feeling Seen


On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them "feel seen." It's about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, "That's me!" It's an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.

    A wonderful way to explore movies.

    Really cool concept
    Let your guests talkkkkkkkkkkk. Pleaseeeeee. Your questions are too long. I don’t care how many worlds you know. I’ll still listen because there are moments that are 💯 delightful! And Jordan can be a good host with really good questions! But for the love of anything please start to let your guests talk. On a recent episode they said how they run Q and A’s better. Do you?! Or do you like your essay length talking points??

    Generally great content, lackluster for a POC
    I first heard of this podcast through an ad on another podcast. It sounded interesting: the topics seemed great and the host sounded engaging. The only issue was that the ad itself referenced talking about "Southeast Asian" representation when talking about things like Harold and Kumar and with an South Asian guest speaker. But I gave it the benefit of the doubt thinking "hey, maybe they did indeed share interesting factoids or ideas about Southeast Asian representation." So I gave the advertised episode (as well as a couple more episodes) a listen. Turns out, the podcast got South Asian and Southeast Asian confused; which wouldn't be so bad if the podcast wasn't all about progressive ideas, representation, deconstructing stigma and stereotypes, etc (all valueable and great themes), which makes me feel like the podcast falls short of what it tries to represent. Yes, this is a very very small detail to most listeners (or may be completely invisible), but it was extremely disappointing, and would be disappointing to anyone who is aware of the differences in Asian regional cultures. Perhaps it may be helpful to have a more diverse podcast team/staff to catch diverse details that otherwise slip through the cracks; otherwise, more and more of your viewers will slip through the cracks.

    A total delight
    Jordan Crucchiola is delightful to listen to— whipsmart, thoughtful and exuding positivity. She gets the best guests— often from something I’ve just seen or have been dying to see (e.g. Mariama Diallo, director of MASTER; Jasmin Savoy Brown, one of the stars of YELLOWJACKETS; Isabelle Fuhrman, star of THE NOVICE) and eagerly explores with them a piece of art that made them feel seen. I look forward to this podcast and always learn something!

    Great concept!
    I love the germ of this podcast. My only constructive feedback for JC is to stop interrupting or injecting “mmhmm”s as your guests speak. Will def keep listening!

    A Wonderful Perspective!
    Pretty much everything Jordan Crucchiola puts out gets at least a try from me, but even by that standard I was really impressed! She’s a great interviewer getting lots of fascinating guests in for some really deep conversations on identity as seen through the lens of media. Can’t recommend highly enough!

    great concept

    Great Concept and Greater Host!
    I love this podcast! Jordan is a warm presence and so fascinating! Plus, the premise of this podcast is perfection—everyone has a movie character that they relate to, for good or for ill. A++, can’t wait for the next episode.

    Five Stars!
    Jordan is a thoughtful, knowledgeable host with a finger on the pulse of film culture, and the guests so far have been wonderful! Can’t wait to listen as this show grows!
