  • This is fine…

    In general the content is good from day to day. However the continual requests for the paid subscription is getting old. In top of that asking listeners to provide content which will be packaged up just for the paid subscribers is not a good look. I’m fast forwarding through those parts. Everything else is fine. This is fine.

    It’s great getting lost in the pop culture world with this podcast. My only question is: Where is “Late Night With the Devil?”

  • The ads are getting very long

    I get it, NPR is bleeding money and needs the ad sales. But the length of ads at the beginning is just comically long at this point. It feels like an ad show with some pop culture shows tucked towards the end
