Laugh out loud

Love the show! I’ve been a listener for a couple years now, and I still look forward to each Thursday when I’ll get my next episode. This is my favorite podcast still after all these years.

Echo chamber paradise

I used to enjoy this podcast, but over the last year, it’s turned into an echo chamber. The guests all have the same views, rarely adding anything unique to the discussion. It makes for boring listening. The bias from some guests is often astounding. The arguments made for certain views are weak and not well thought out. It feels like I’m just scrolling through twitter reading bad commentary about current events.

Used to love this show BUT

Let me start off by saying I am a young black bi sexual man. I used to really enjoy this show. But the host and guest complete dismissal of Bernie Sanders has got to me. The show constantly harps on Bernie only getting white voters etc - and completely leaving out the fact that Bernie cleans house with blacks and millennials of every races. She’s writing off people like me. Negin Farsad, has the cutest little laugh ever and is a very beautiful women but every time she speak about Benrie Sanders the loathing is dripping out of every word. I am going to just leave it hear. But it’s time to try a TRUE progressive president for the first time in my life ~
