  • Please remove old content from subscriptions

    Another loyal fan disappointed by the subscription model. Please remove the old episodes. If I wanted to listen to them again, I would go back to them myself. It’s just a nuisance not being able to see what’s new and what’s not. And especially difficult when driving because they auto-play in order and I don’t want to hear the episodes I’ve already listened to, but can’t navigate through for safety reasons.

  • Esther is great, but this season is lower quality

    This podcast has always been one of my favourites but the quality of its content has lowered drastically in this last season. Episodes are either shorter, behind a subscription paywall, or just replays of old stuff. Not sure where the promise of ‘new content every Monday’ comes from?

  • Suffering and Emotions cannot Abide Commercials!

    It’s insufferable to have commercials in a therapy session. What were they thinking? If Esther sold her show or if she allowed commercials it was a huge mistake. I will not be paying for joining a club with such insensitivity.
