What happened to Julia Yost?

I used to listen to this podcast Religiously and forward it to others and listen to it repeatedly. As a 59-year-old Executive and practicing Catholic with eight kids, this podcast was my GPS To the world of young Executive’s and professionals, explaining the culture and dissecting the religious and socio cultural ramifications of the shows my kids binge watch and the trends that hold their attention. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the conversations and current format of the show. However, the show has lost the place it held as a unique interpreter of popular culture for people who have an old world, normatively religious perspective. I would’ve given it five stars because of the depth of quality, but it would be consoling to know where I could also find commentaries by Julia Yost and her snarky but interesting guests.

Tedious

Please bring back Yost and Schmitz. Bauerlein is a fine writer but a dull host.

Bring back Yost and Schmidt

Mark Bauerlein is a smart guy, but a boring podcaster. The show is currently unlistenable. Bring back the old format.
