AfterNoona ARMY Podcast Excels!

I’m a comparatively new ARMY, less than 1 year. I’ve been listening the various BTS-centered podcasts including AfterNoona Army. This pod is fun, funny, thoughtful, but the last 2: Episodes: Aug. 28 & Sept. 6, 2023, have sealed the deal for me.
Hosts Becky & Lia speak out about decisions V & RM have made which seem in dissonance with the parasocial relationship with ARMY they have worked so hard to build.
I’m Grandma ARMY. I LOVE my Boys, All SEVEN. (JK & V bias), but they are each Human, and make mistakes, are imperfect. As are we all.
That this pod is honest enough to raise these concerns, (which I agree with), openly, well, my respect is won. Well done.

MrsPantsakl ,

Great for fans!

Such a great pod for fans young and old. Really enjoy listening, especially during this hiatus time!

AMM MN ,

Brings me so much joy!

Thank you for this podcast! I’m a fairly new BTS, k-pop, and k-drama fan, and absolutely enjoy your deeply appreciative conversations about BTS, their music, and their other activities like art and fashion.

Thanks, too, for the tips on where to find them beyond Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube.
