Life Kit: How To Receive Feedback

I love that this podcast is essentially a complication of super helpful “life hacks”. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while—something that would be short and sweet—something that would be beneficial for both me and my students—and this is it!

No more episodes with Andee Tagle

It’s offensive how boring her interviews are. She always has the coolest guests and it’s like she’s holding her breath and not asking the right questions. No more with her... anybody else. Her interviews are as interesting to listen to as milk. Room temperature, whole fat milk.

The Host… Ugh

Some of the topics are interesting, but the voice of Elise Hu is so sugary sweet and she speaks to the listener in a somewhat patronizing way. I think she’s better suited for a podcast directed towards children.
