Gimme a treat
Thanks to you all for your wonderful podcast.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoy listening to you guys go back and forth.
The genuine affection (I hope!i get this right and everyone doesn’t actually just hate Merlin cause of his awesome name) is great to hear and I enjoy every Friday evening to listen and enjoy.
My thanks to you wonderful people.
All the best from sunny Perth Australia,
If I had to listen to just one podcast ever again, it may well be Do By Friday. Keep up the great work!
A very funny, but very ableist show
I’m so torn about Do By Friday. It’s often hilarious, sometimes inciteful, and occasionally really sweet. The people and the characters have an incredible dynamic, and at its peak it makes me laugh harder than anything.
But it’s also very ableist. One of the hosts (Alex) is a neurominority, and a popular bit on the show is basically just relentlessly mocking her for her odd behaviour, or difficulty communicating. It feels poisonous. I feel like I’m Alex in a lot of ways, and Max and Merlin feel like the high school bullies I used to suck up to. Often funny, but often cruel.
I wish the show would focus on external stuff, and quit making fun of each other and by extension, the listeners.
