What the heck guys?

Hangout, what’s going on!?! I was very excited when Tinkercast aka Wow in the World announced they were making a new show, especially about Highlights, because I read the magazine. When the first episodes came out, I was very disappointed, because it didn’t have the enthusiasm and humor that WITW had. And then there were those weird in-between episodes of JUST callers. This went on for a while until the State of the Kid Survey Celebration happened. The episodes were just so out-of-whack and strangely organized that I stopped listening. There was 1 more fairly short episode after that, and then they just stopped making them altogether! I don’t know what happened, but then there were ENCORE EPISODES!!! That was just unacceptable! Highlights MAGAZINE doesn’t make encore magazines! I was very upset, but now there are these weird Home Makeover episodes, which simply doesn’t make sense.

You guys are, honestly, lazy with your podcast.

My one wish is for Highlights Hangout to up their game and show the world why they are a Tinkercast show! I really hope you guys see and fix these problems.

Wait, a nickname? ,

Put NEW episodes and not encores

I wait about a month and only get an encore also make shows faster
