Informative and Practical

Life Kit covers a variety of topics and gives short, practical advice that’s easy to apply. Even the episodes that I don’t think will be useful to my life usually are in some way.

The content here is useful but a commentator uses the word “like” far too much and not only impacts the listenability of the podcast but also is a disappointment for me on NPR standards of effective communication and proper English!
