  • I used to like this podcast

    Why do you sound like you are in a tunnel? The poor audio makes this podcast unlistenable.

  • One of the listening highlights of my week!

    I’ve lived in Southeast Asia for the past 15 years, after spending my first 52 years as a native of Philly, so saying I was out of the loop for years is a masterpiece of understatement. more

  • Liberal nut jobbery

    Yikes… these people are so out of touch and living in a delusional liberal bubble. I would love to come on and take an opportunity to bring up issues that can be debated without censorship and get an exchange of actual information and answers that don’t tip toe around the subject matter.

  • Usually love, very disappointed today

    I have listened to and loved, with patience and grace, this podcast for a long time now. But today of all days, the unexplained absence of BOTH male co-hosts was infuriating, heartbreaking, and nauseating. Whatever the reason for absenting yourself from the discussion about the leaked decision, it isn’t landing. Emily should not have been hosting this week’s episode solo. I’m gutted and look forward to a deeper explanation. Don’t make women do this alone.
