  • Love these questions!

    In just a few episodes this show has managed to strike a balance between fun celebrity interview and simple but deep questioning. Now I just need to know when/where I can buy the official “Wild Card” question deck! 🤓

  • Not what I thought it would be…

    This is a deeply personal interview show disguised as a game. When I was listening to the first episode with Jenny Slate and the rules of the game I was expecting Jenny to come up with witty answers for our entertainment. I was completely wrong. The questions are designed to inspire self reflection and personal memories. If the “player” tries to slide shallow, Rachel nudges them or uses her own experiences to draw them deeper - quite effectively. It’s a brilliant show. Thank you!

  • Not for me

    I loved Rachel when she was covering the 2016 presidential election and hosted Morning Edition Sunday. Her new podcast feels very gimmicky and her voice has become super high-pitched. Why not just interview folks straight up?
