Robyn Elise ,

Drop ModCloth

For a podcast about feminism and, more broadly, social issues. I was really upset that ModCloth is a sponsor. I can’t in, good conscious, continue to listen when a company owned by Wal-Mart (with a terrible track record of treating their employees like garbage) is a sponsor of a show broadcasting equality.

Armadillo Dude ,

Pseudo-intellectual

The content isn’t that wholesome or compelling. They talk about serious issues and hit on some points but equally hit on points that edge on identity politics conspiracy theories and unimportant topics.

ashleyepyne ,

Yes

I loved the anthology and was sad when I was done reading. This podcast allows me to get a weekly daily dose. Love love love.
