Not bad

Decent podcast. Production is good. I found the ads to be super excessive and so so repetitive and annoying. Definitely not a good selling point for the products.

It was also pretty entertaining to hear them botch the pronunciation of Chilliwack.

Great idea; questionable execution

I’m not sure I ‘get’ this podcast. It’s an interesting premise and the first few episodes are engaging. But it seems to devolve into a never ending pity party with no real resolution in sight. I literally don’t understand how anyone could feel so responsible for something a parent did, no matter how bad. This level of self absorption is unhealthy, but more importantly it’s exhausting to listen to, so I’m struggling to see how it makes for a good podcast.

Love The Music

Reading lots of hate for the music, not for everybody but I loved the music. The daughter is annoying but the story is good. Would have liked to hear more about the siblings.
