Pieces of Britney

4.3/5

Critic Rating

What is it like to be a woman in the public eye above all else? How do you convince us you’re OK, or at least that you should be left alone? And once you think you have, how do you unmask yourself and break free? This new podcast investigates the case of Britney Spears, parsing what we know about her story and what it tells us about sex, entertainment, and how we treat women in the public eye.

James Marriot • The Times UK Jul 8, 2021

"It's beautifully constructed and narrated by one of the best voices in podcasting, the mellifluous Pandora Sykes (of High Low fame)."

Score: 4.5

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Jul 3, 2021

"...presenter Pandora Sykes is trying to do something different with this podcast: to present a sympathetic portrait, and locate Spears within a cultural context. An admirable ambition. This is an absorbing podcast, and I recommend it. But I wanted Sykes to go darker, get angrier, not just ask reasonable questions."
