  • Great podcast, bad management

    I loved sword and scale. I was a plus member for years at the 5 dollar amount, and I listened to every episode. Mike said the price was going up but people who paid for the 5 dollar plan would be grandfathered in. Well I have still been paying 5 a month but now I can’t access anything from the plus side. All my downloads are gone. And I have to pay 10 a month to get my membership back. So I guess the whole grandfathering thing was a lie? It really put a sour taste in my mouth after years of supp... more

  • Weird angry vibes

    Believe all women is not meant to be taken literally. It refers to the statistical fact- that women don’t lie when reporting SA. 🙄 also- - Muslims are not all violent extremists and thinking otherwise(aka being racist/islamaphobic) is literally a scientific studied and proven to be a sign of low IQ, bro.

  • Four, five years ago it was great. Now, it’s just an angry host that ruins it.

    What used to be a great set of storytelling episodes has turned into an impossible-to-listen-to serious of rants, complaints and mockery from its increasingly distasteful host. It’s unfortunate, because this really was great. Years ago.

  • Great storyteller and you’re honest

    You speak your mind - thank you. And you’re a great story teller. So many people today are afraid to say what everyone else is thinking. You aren’t. Thank you.
