WHYYYYYY A small number of men commit a disgusting crime, and not only is it a widespread trend – it’s actually women’s fault for being mean :( Side note: Thanks to listener Sara for pointing this out on Twitter — Maura misspoke and brothels are legal in 10 of Nevada's 16 counties. Sexism is real in all of them, though.

Best podcast theme song 🎶

Yes of course the podcast is insightful & hilarious, but the theme song is the best! It always makes me dance 💃🏽🪩🕺🏽

No thank you

These hosts are petty and biased. I’ll go listen to something wittier and original.

Media literacy made funny: the Daily Show for tabloids

This is my weekly must-listen, the antidote to the biased and sloppy writing of tabloids. Calling out promotions disguised as reporting, tentative language/hedging, conflicts of interest, racism, misogyny, and grammatical anomalies, this show will keep your critical thinking skills sharp!
