I thought you had aspergers, but now this all makes sense.

Borough Dog Lady

Insensitive

Today’s episode covered Holocaust Memorial Day, the 100,000 deaths from covid in the UK, spoke out George Floyd’s murder - but with no change to the tone of the show? The music and format was still as cheery and flippant as ever, and I found it very very jarring. Even the opening few lines of “it’s Holocaust Memorial Day, and happy birthday to....!” This is a deeply insensitive way to cover such huge new stories, particularly when they almost certainly personally impact a large proportion of your listeners.

I usually live in a box

I’m terrible and known for not reading the news. This is a easy to digest update and also not depressing like a lot of news at the moment
