Love this pod!

Enjoyable but…

Kate and Doree are fun and I truly enjoy listening to them. I would like it if they would have a more diverse range of guests in terms of the reason they’re on the pod. It seems like the only reason they ever have guests on is to promote their books and they don’t talk to anyone who is not an author. Not all of us are writers and not all of us have the work from home lifestyle. It would be nice to see that represented. My favorite are the product recall episodes!

BUT-y’all I have misophonia and just cannot tolerate the sniffling and hacking into the microphone. if Doree is sick just for the love of God don’t record until she is able to record without a phlegmy cough or severe congestion. It is OK to be sick and actually take a few days or a week off. Practice what you preach! She sounded so sick in the episodes this week. I do agree with others about the ads. I would shorten the intro (where to find you blah blah) and cut out a lot of ads.
