Twitter: The Podcast

It’s unfortunate that Negin, who is by all accounts a smart person, brings on so many guests who have no idea what they’re talking about. If you want to listen to a watered-down rehashing of your Twitter feed as read by so-called “comedians” who have strong opinions founded on nothing then this is the show for you.

I was a listener for almost 2 years before I realized what a circle jerk this podcast can be. Again, Negin herself brings thoughtful nuanced insight to just about every topic but every week I found myself more and more frustrated by her guests. If you’re not going to provide any thoughtful analysis, at least be funny. This show consistently does neither.

Recommended alternative: Lovett or Leave It, where comedians (who are literally never exclusively straight and white) provide thoughtful (and actually funny analysis) of the news of the week AND manage to actually be funny
