Was better with Claire
Just missing something now.
Noticeable drop in quality after Clare was let go.
I used to never miss an episode. The podcast had a great flow and feel to it. I thought it’d be okay after Clare was let go but I just don’t care if I miss an episode now. It’s lost the personality and I can’t force myself to listen anymore.
Not listening now Clare has gone
But of course a funny, smart woman has been let go. Massive eye roll. I can’t believe you have got rid of Clare. She was the best thing about the show. Not bothering to stay subscribed.
