Great concept, great guests, love Zanna! Enjoying the start, hoping it will dive further in as time goes on and topics have been covered. Perfect length for a dog walk too, so it ticks all my boxes 😂🙌🏼
The podcast was not too bad, but it was a little bit too scripted- the best podcasts have an element of spontaneous discussion about them that was missing here. Also I don’t mind Zanna and have followed her at different times on Instagram, but I think that many of the reviewers here (ignore the trolls!) actually have a valid point: she was the wrong choice of host. When choosing an influencer - or any presenter for that matter- it is critical that the brand chose a host whose own brand FULLY supports the message and this case hers doesn’t The many overseas flight were the main reason I stopped following her; her carbon footprint is immense, even flying to New Zealand this year, and the destructive effect this has on the environment is not something to be dismissed lightly, even if listeners feel that otherwise they like her. Also, yes, she does epitomise a very privileged white woman; Dove missed an opportunity to give a BIPOC person a voice on this platform.
I cannot take anything with Zanna on it seriously
I like the idea of the podcast but Zanna isn’t somebody who I can ever listen too with any interest or respect about this topic as she is the most unsustainable influencer out there with multiple air travel miles under her belt - saying ‘it’s my job’ is a frightful excuse and if somebody was truly passionate about the health of the planet and living sustainably then they would not be living her lifestyle. Unfortunately I find her very inauthentic and feel she is only in it for the insta fame and money so it’s hard to enjoy the podcast.
