Love the podcast! I listen from Canada.
On the show Jordana often says she reads all of the reviews, so out of curiosity I started reading a few and after reading some of the negative reviews, I was really annoyed.
I can’t help thinking some of the commenters take it way too serious.
There’s infinite nuances in dating involving socioeconomic status, gender identity etc..
The podcast content isn’t “archaic” for not citing this every episode.
In my opinion, it’s assumed that the advice you both give applies to anyone that’s open to receive it without getting caught up in the correctness of the delivery.
The show is fun & funny!
Lastly, how dare they suggest replacing Jordana or Jared! Clearly, they’re not fans.
In my mind, it’s unreasonable to complain to change the entirety of a particular podcast.
Instead of leaving unconstructive criticism, move along.
Keep doing what you guys do!
Long intro fan!
Please keep the long intros and talking more about your personal lives! Favourite part tbh.
The best 👌🏼
This is my fav podcast! You guys are great together. So funny and relevant advice too. I do love the long intros because u have great banter. Wouldn’t suggest any changes. :)
