Informative but....

Informative but too much at times. I’ll literally skip several minutes per question.

Wanted to like this podcast but…

I find myself becoming impatient with the unnecessary chitchat at the beginning of the show - and annoyed by Lizzie Post’s constant giggling throughout. Other listeners have mentioned it but those comments doesn’t seem to make a difference. Has great potential but needs some serious streamlining.

Good show

I do enjoy the show. It’s a bit drawn out at times
