Not throughline

Glad this was downloaded in the throughline podcast due to a technical error that just seemed a lot like sabotage; now I’ve finally found a podcast I can give a bad review to. I’ve listened to literally over 5000hrs of podcasts and found none more annoying - and I can tolerate Matt’s voice on The Weeds from Vox (not actually hating on Matt) - or even as boring as PolitiCoast.

love love love

I can’t even describe how much I love this show. We have been listening for over 10 years. Thanks for continuing the show.
