Inconsistent

Everything about this podcast is inconsistent. From the audio quality to the quality of the content, ranges from terrible to excellent. I’m tired of listening to repurposed conference content that sounds like it was recorded from the back of the room. It’s honestly so draining to listen to. The straw that broke the camel’s back was a recent episode on building confidence as a woman in the workplace. It was just terrible content that was a man’s opinion of how women can be more confident and a woman agreeing. Not helpful at all. Unsubscribed.
