Logan Marshall green

Hi, I was disappointed that the podcast platformed Logan Marshall Green the same season that his ex wife accused him of rape and abuse. I feel like the cozy cute opening framing him as a family man feels very misleading. This could have been an opportunity for the podcast and hosts to choose not to support a powerful man alleged to have harmed a woman.
