Great pod

I love this show. Annie and Nick have a great dynamic they’re both sharp, smart, self aware and just funny. However Annie - your take on China being the reason they’re banning TT… girl the US has been stealing our data since day 1 via social media. It’s not about protecting Americans, china isn’t controlling a “narrative”, it’s about AIPAC stopping the free Palestine movement and how strong it’s become. You’re so smart I was really disappointed in that luke warm take….

Fun Beauty & Culture Pod

Discovered via the Fat Mascara cross-over episode and I’ve been binging since. I love that they cover beauty and pop culture, something different than the other beauty podcasts I consume.
