Lorelski ,

Content is often great!

Other reviewers have complained about the hosts’ poor presentation skills, but I believe they have improved a lot over the years—so kudos, April Calahan and Cassidy Zachary! I don’t listen to every podcast, but when I do, I’m impressed by the knowledge and passion these two women have for fashion, history, and culture. Here are a few words to the critics: (A) Try to see past your problems with the hosts’ delivery—you’ll be rewarded with great content. (B) So you don’t like the topic of each and every show? Well, tough. Do you know how hard it is to come up with content every week? The topics may not all be up your alley, but they’re well-researched. (C) Sure the ads are annoying, but you’re getting this podcast for FREE, so live with it. (D) I haven’t heard anything “political” on this podcast, but I know that April and Cassidy are concerned about the environment, and I’m with them on that.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, APRIL
