I loved it!

Anna is such a great host! I listened to the episodes with Tika Sumpter and Adam DeVine and I enjoyed it so much. The transition to the expert seemed a little awkward but it won’t stop me from listening to more episodes.

Lost the “Unqualified” charm

I used to enjoy this podcast in both incarnations (with and without Sim). I’m glad Anna forces less of her improv characters on the unwilling guests. She also now instead opts for some more quasi-journalistic style questions. This has kind of taken away from the informal nature of the original podcast. I wish it was more anecdotal and humorous like it used to be.

I also feel like the show has lost the original appeal which was Anna giving the guests her “unqualified” advice. She no longer does this and instead has various experts giving out advice. This is obviously all well and good for the guest, but takes away from the original charm and entertainment of the show.

After over a year of trying to hang on, I’ve unsubscribed. For my humour and expert relationship/health advice, I’ll be listening to Dr Drew instead.
