    OMG these are always so funny. I listened to this one twice in a row and was still laughing out loud by the end.

    Totally cringe-worthy! My family has its share of dysfunction but these sisters are reaching for the gold!

    “white men”, “famous writer”, “anti-vax”, “cheering for hitler”. Lots of words but not a lot of sibling empathy. Maybe once a year is maybe too much…

    This is the first thing i listened to on this website and i didn’t know it was fiction, and i was horrified.

    Ok so I don’t get this podcast yet. Some fiction? Some documentary? I’m still learning and I can’t get used to it. Listening to this Xmas episode I wanted to jump in front of a bus for all the sisters. Truly horrible. Then credits rolled? Ugh. I have 10 siblings and we have handled the pandemic with almost flawless compassion and respect for one another with one giant exception. In a few minutes this drama had more pathology than my family has displayed in the last 20 years. But it was fake? Ok. So sometimes it was supposed to be funny. I’ll try listening to a few more but if I have to Google Finn Rooney to see if he’s real it’s a problem for me. Was the dairy farmer real? Anyway those are the episodes I’ve listened to plus the defenders, which I hope was
    was real cause I bought all of it as real.

    Was binging the podcast and ran into awful sisters by mistake. I thought it was real, and hilarious. I immediately sent it to my sister and sisterish-cousin, they also thought it was hilarious. But without context of the podcast, knew it was satire off the bat. We all still enjoyed it, and went to find the 2020 version and enjoyed that one too. Can’t wait for 2022 Christmas.
