Calling it a podcast is a bit rich.

Tried to listen to the recent episode on cults. Part one was a quarter of the time they spent tip toeing about trying to not be offensive and explaining what a cult is. Like, let’s face it we all know what you mean when you say cult. The other three quarters of the episode was just advertising.

Tried to listen to part two but when you spend 20 minutes recapping AGAIN what a cult is, and then four ads in a row, I just gave up trying to listen.

Most episodes feel like this, I’m just skipping continuous ads waiting for actual content that never arrives. Stop wasting peoples time.
