D.I.N.K ,

Just like best friends you make my day better :)

Thank you so much for making the podcast! I have for a long time been dealing with anxiety in places with a lot of people, making the train ride to and from school a stressfull situation for me. But after I started listening to this podcast its like I’m more relaxed and calm. Alison you have the most beautiful voice in the world and I wish you could narrate my life. Shout-out to the Thursday gang! You guys rock!

Greetings from Denmark

Enjoyable, witty and honest!

Alison does a great job of creating a relaxed atmosphere with whoever guest and brings her trademark wit along from ACS. The shows strength, aside from being funny, is the brutal honesty Alison brings to the table about own insecurities and existential issues she might be experiencing. However at times, it bothers me how much she apologizes for show segments or shortcomings. But as these apologies were addressed in the prologue to the FA podcast one could hope that these will decrease as the show finds its footing. As I am from Denmark I can honestly say that this show, with its universal topics is enjoyable for anyone wherever they are.

Marc Maron episode
