More Rebecca Please

I like this podcast except for Jeff’s mansplaining. Let Rebecca speak! Her work is good- it doesn’t need editing.

Let Rebecca Talk

I’m listening to their best books of the year so far. Even when Rebecca is talking about her picks Jeff talks over her or mansplains.

I wonder if they read the comments because this seems to be a common theme? Rebecca is such a smart woman and would like to hear her thoughts.

host - Renee ,

I enjoy, though...

Though I really enjoy the podcast, Jeff often dominates the conversation and when Rebecca finally gets the opportunity to speak, as soon as she does, Jeff frequently interrupts her and talks right over her. It’s REALLY painful to listen to and a huge turn off.
