Great information but so. freaking. slow.

The slow, choppy cadence of the host is really off-putting to an otherwise practical and informative podcast. Thank you for the great advice, but please for the love of all things holy, stop. pausing. after. each. word.

Good tips are few and far between

I used to enjoy this podcast and I do like the short format (which would be much more effective without all the ads). But recently the good tips have been few and far between. It feels like Laura is stretching to find content, maybe because she has such a narrow focus and cannot see beyond her privileged life as a white, upper-class woman. Not everyone can just throw money at a problem to make it go away, which is often the tip she offers.

It can also be hard to get past her speaking cadence. Obviously the show is scripted, which is fine, but her speaking is stilted, with odd pauses that are hard to get past.

Favorite morning podcast!

It’s funny this is called “before breakfast” because I listen to it everyday while eating breakfast. I love the bite-sized daily tip, which Laura shares in a way that it can fit any person with just about any lifestyle. I’ve listened almost everyday for several months and there’s never been a topic that wasn’t helpful! I also noticed some reviews mention an issue with her voice (soft & slower). I find it incredibly calming, especially in a word where people and things are almost always rushed!
