This is my favorite podcast since 2016-2017. I love the care and nuance with how they approach each topic. The entire team is so thoughtful and talented. Also Roman Mars might be the only white man I trust and listen to willingly. ❤️

Mars’ phony laughter makes it difficult to enjoy.

Not only does his laughter sound phony, it’s often inappropriate, making it impossible for me to enjoy what is otherwise a great podcast.
Is it a generational thing?
The greatest, Ira Glass, who seems to be Mars’ role model, doesn’t do it.
