Please please stop the “likes”.

I really do not understand the origin and use of “ like” as a sentence stuffer. For me it is an irritating tic and one that makes listening so very grating on the nerves that I ultimately give up.
What a pity that conversation is so often dominated by “likeists”. Can you understand how this might turn listeners away?

The best culture podcast around

Brilliant, hilarious, and culturally omnivorous. Love all three of the hosts and any guests they bring in!

Had to stop listening. All of the speakers used “like” so much I couldn’t focus on the points they were trying to make.
