Love this show but I don’t like that they went back to old format

I discovered unqualified a few months back and I’ve been obsessed! Anna is a fantastic host and asks great questions. However, they recently went back to their “original” format where the majority of the episode is focused on listener questions and discussions. I really enjoyed the focus being more on the guests life/career/input more, with the end being listener advice. Hoping they go back to the other format!

Alright, alright, alright 😂

Been catching up, bingeing your podcast and I just love it! Wow Matthew!!! Gosh he really is adorable and wonderful and just a solid human being! Anna, we are about the same age, listen to the same music, one child, and we both are getting in touch with our creative side! I was thinking about relearning knitting 🧶- but I’ve been painting and learning to play bass guitar… I also don’t have many friends that are girls, I have two solid friends and yes why is it difficult for some of us to have these friendships? Are we too weird or whatever?! I don’t know 🤷🏻‍♀️ well anyways, Loved how Courtney Love is your Hero because she is also my Hero! Very awesome, take care and Merry Christmas to you and your son and family! 💝Carrie

Love her!

This is a funny, funny podcast and depending on her guest you learn so much about other people and the guest stories are so great !! I absolutely love the phone call portion and how Anna truly cares about each caller and wants to give solid advice . She’s one of my favorites now, you won’t regret giving this podcast a listen!! The Lauren Lapkus interview was fantastic today; especially when she was so honest about friendships in the past. I so appreciated her opinion in those situations , she helped me personally so much!! I’ve been struggling with the same thing and to know other people have been through it is so comforting. Thank you!!
