Dinomaciel ,

Ugh ..the whining

I’m new to this podcast but I couldn’t take more than 2 I tried!! But their talk about (at this Coronavirus time) how they misssss their $6 latte in a the morning and how one of them has to stay at home with her soon to marry fiancé! ??
Just humdrum.

Filler words and meaningless banter

Like, could you stop saying like so much. It makes you sound both extremely uneducated and inarticulate. Just a bunch of meaningless, dull banter.
