One of the best listens out there

I really enjoy this pod. Willa is entertaining and engaging speaker and speaks on topics I could listen to for hours (and do!). Thanks for the great show!

My favorite podcast

Willa Paskin is absolutely excellent! The team that produces this podcast does such a great job at digging into such bizarrely fascinating cultural moments and trends. I’m hooked and need this podcast like a teenager needs Juul.

To the people that complain about the ads — did you pay for this? No. No you didn’t. Ads allow you to listen to this for free. If you don’t like them, there’s this fab tool called fast forward. Have a blessed day.
