Unsubscribed

You know, it’s so difficult you know to listen you know to this podcast because you know this is how all the you know critics speak. Don’t they ever you know listen to how they speak? I’m sure you know they don’t you know write their reviews you know in this form.

I listen weekly

I agree with others - I could live without Tim and Charles. That said, on the whole, the show is better than when I started listening years and years ago

I especially enjoy Claudia, Lael, and Justin Chang. And Larry is a national treasure.
