312: The Power of Can and Can’t Podcast

Great ideas, easy to listen and no judgment.
Best of Decluttering
This is one of the best podcasters on decluttering and organizing. Give it a try, even if you aren’t a slob. I don’t consider myself a slob and I love organizing and yet I’ve still found new original ideas. I suspect that she may speak to those of us with a bit of an ADD brain.
Dana does have guests on and while they rarely are in my situation, I find help in the episodes. Also, Dana *listens* to her guests. Truly listens and understands what they are trying to say. That is a gift.
Quality went downhill
The older episodes that are just Dana are pretty solid, but the last year or so it’s like she ran out of things to talk about and has been interviewing patreon patrons on the show to fill space. The patron interviews aren’t quality content. The interviewees are amateurs with poor speaking skills, poor audio equipment, and often a terrible southern accent, and they’re all unemployed housewives for the most part. As a single professional, I don’t find interviews with unemployed housewives whose biggest struggle is laundry even slightly helpful. But those are the people paying Dana to be on the podcast, so another housewife complaining about kid laundry is the content we’re getting. I think that’s a very lazy podcast model, and only interviewing unemployed housewives results in a failure to provide any useful information to single professionals. News flash, modern women who pay our own bills have different needs than an adult dependent who has the whole darn day to wash their kids clothes and still for some reason can’t find the time. If I hear one more whinge about kid laundry I’m going to scream. You can call laundry hard when you have to schedule two hours sitting in a laundromat around actual paid employment with a 45 minute commute.
