The not at all vexatiousness of this outstanding podcast.
I found this podcast during the pandemic and immediately fell in love with the quirky conversations and the just all around great people that host this show that helped me escape the terror that is COVID. My friends continue to be impressed with the theories and opinions that I steal from the show and Desk Pig is now a running joke. If you have stumbled upon this podcast for the first time you are in luck! Thanks a million for all you guys do.
I hate that I am having to write the review and that I can no longer listen or support this podcast.
I am of the mindset that discrimination in all forms is wrong. I used to believe that the hosts felt the same way, especially considering the message of these books. Unfortunately, that is not at all the case, despite what the hosts say. They berated JK Rowling for her statements regarding the trans community and insist that tolerance is needed, but then go on to discriminate against and villainize an entire population of people (Republicans). The hypocrisy is concerning, especially because the hosts don’t seem to realize or acknowledge it.
Because of this, I will no longer listen nor allow my kids to listen, as this messaging is the exact opposite of what I am trying to teach them.
Hopefully the hosts will be able to take a look inside themselves and instead of continuing to spew vitriol and hate, they will lead with love.
