Jane...

The weeds is by a margin my favorite podcast. This is largely because of Matt. He’s the best podcast host I’ve ever heard. Dara is incredible too. Sarah was also fantastic rip. But Jane really makes the show worse for me. She doesn’t articulate her opinions nearly as well as the other hosts, and she seldom makes interesting contributions. I think the show would be much better, and more successful, if Jane was replaced.

I used to listen to every episode

Then I stopped after I found myself always thinking ‘Jane, please shut up’

Please institute a ‘like’ jar already!

I used to love this podcast. Conversational nerdiness, what’s not to love? But in recent months the fast talking leading to the over reliance on the filler word ‘like’ has made the show insufferable. I removed the podcast from my weekly rotation thinking i just needed a break, but upon returning in December—NOPE! Even worse. ‘Like’ is a word in that steals the place & use of verbs and adjectives that actually communicate information. This podcast is all about discussing meaning! I don’t expect the complete banishment of all filler and crutch words/phrases (otherwise it wouldn’t be so conversational which is a feature not a big) but come on. I expect more from the contributors and from Vox. Too much filler to get to the killer (commentary in this case)
