Girl Crush

Thank you Jameela. Thanks for your honesty, activism, humor, and willingness to go there, wherever there may be.

I Listen… but Jameela doesn’t

I want to love this podcast because I’m totally behind the movement and the conversations that need to be had, but Jameela… you need to stop interrupting and let the guests speak more. Almost every episode is more of you talking than the guests.
Often times they begin to fully develop the answer to your questions but then you bulldoze and attach a story with your own experience instead of hearing theirs out. It’s so apparent in every episode. I can feel the guests kind of thrown off and silent sometimes because it just takes a turn into the Jameela Show. I hope you take constructive criticism and allow your guests more time to speak and take time to just listen.

Changed my mind

This podcast used to be really empowering to women. The last week’s episodes have been real soft balls. Rating is ehhhh.
