Parcast

My favorite production company for podcasts. Love the hosts...and listen to just about all of them! Can you do a cults Podcast on the “Love has won” cult? They just found the leader of the cult, mummified, in a bed in the members house?

Soooo many commercials!

I like the podcast and the hosts, but I cannot listen anymore. There is a commercial every 5-10 minutes it seems. It is beyond BEYOND annoying. I can no longer listen to this.

4 stars because.....

Please stop Greg from saying, and I’m paraphrasing here, “Vanessa isn’t a trained psychologist or psychiatrist but she HAS done a lot of research on this subject.”
Then Vanessa demurs, “thanks, Greg.”
It would be much more empowering for Vanessa to make this statement for herself. Better yet, it really doesn’t even need to be said since she immediately sites where she got the info and who said it.
This bugs me every podcast!!! 😡
