Progressively Getting Worse
I’m not sure what direction they intended this podcast to go, but they seem to answer in increased degrees of sexism. And most of their answers don’t even address the questions asked as they seem to go off on their own path.
This has been something I’ve noticed over the last several months. It was not like this in the beginning.
And the messed up intro act is getting old. Just do the intro. I’m going to listen for a few more episodes, but I am not sure I will be sticking around.
If you give this one a try, start with the older episodes.
