I needed to hear this today

Thank you for addressing this issue. It can feel very isolating so this was great to hear someone with my exact feelings. Thank you

From Video Games to Drugs

The pod has useful tips if you wanna stop playing video games. However it promotes the use of illegal drugs like hallucinogens and and glorifies drugs culture. I found the pod hypocritical in one hand it’s saying don’t play video games they’re addictive and will ruin your life. While in the other hand they’re saying use drugs they’re cool and will make your life better. Shame on the host for telling the listeners to use illegal drugs like LSD! The pod is essentially telling the listener to trade in their video game addiction for a drug addiction. Shame on the podcast creators.
