Well...

I’m taken aback. I subscribed to Howl to listen to ‘wild horses’ and ‘Threedom’ both of which I love. I was very confused as I had paid for these shows only for one to completely stop new episodes, and the other released on iTunes a month after its ‘howl’ run. ‘Raised by TV’ is similar in that it was released on howl, and then on iTunes in a strangely different order. Now it’s going BACK behind the pay wall, and my favourite entertainers are telling me to grin and bare it?? This is not ok. I love Lauren and Jon, but this is awful!

Comfort food

Raised by TV is comfort food for my ears. They talk about growing up watching tv. And they’re my age so what they watched is essentially what I watched. I’m a TV junkie so it’s nice to find your people. Love the show!

Lacks some structure but is pretty good

I like the podcast, but recently it’s turned into bringing in their friends and talking about childhood more than tv, which I think is nice but not why I subscribed. They also quite often cut off the guests to bring up stories we’ve heard several times already.

I would like them to bring in more actors and talk about their experiences during the show and maybe even have themed episodes like they used to have (like horror movies, superhero shows, etc)

It would also be great to bring in folks from younger generations who were raised by different shows and see what the differences are.
