Please stop putting Ara on the podcast
I love the podcast and have listened since the early days but every time Ara is on the podcast I end up auto skipping the episode.
I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt early on and expected her to relax and get more comfortable but every episode goes the same way. She says something that is outright wrong and Daniel ends up politely correcting her and moving on, someone passes the convo to her and she end ups parroting whatever was just said and adding nothing to the conversation.
I don’t want this to come across as sexist exclusion, I listen to all the mobile central podcasts and the hosts at Jiggle Physics and iMore are great. I just think that certain people don’t have the skill set for “radio”. Ara’s personalization articles are super informative and I enjoy her writing but she does not add anything to the podcast.
Keep politics out
Play very annoyingly love to share their political opinion often. Talk about tech on tech shows.
I come here for tech talk
not uneducated opinions on politics. And every time Ara grunts or sighs or whatever she does I want to pull out a nose hair.
