Prince Andrew

Fact-
Prince Andrew is NOT married.
He was divorced from Sarah Ferguson in 1996 and has not remarried. He still lives with his ex wife.

Christine Ford

Jim and Francey are constantly preaching about victim blaming. About how long it takes victims to come forward. About how difficult it is to make allegations against people in power. But the way they spoke about Christine Ford was like a punch in the gut. Because they new and respected Brett Kavana Christine wasn’t to be believed. Talking out both sides of there faces. So hypocritical. Makes me lose respect for them both. Iloved this show up until then.

Had to quit it

Been following this podcast since it came out and finally had to accept that it wasn’t getting better. I appreciate the interesting stories from guests about real world experiences. I have always been uncomfortable with Francey’s objectification of male guests and was extremely disappointed when her true colours have come out since BLM started earlier this year. Her inability to acknowledge systemic racism was the last straw. Jim tries his best to balance her out, but ultimately I had to unsubscribe for my own mental health.
