Cancel Culture

Thank you for doing this podcast and specifically this episode!! My friends and I talk about cancel culture regularly. I think it can be super unhealthy. I love how you both continue to show both sides of each topic you chat about. Love this podcast! Keep doing you :)

Clicking

Please resolve the mouse clicking noise! I thought it was just Erin Brockovich’s audio but Tammy’s ep has it too.

Okay who’s clicking that mouse?!?!

Great podcast and conversations from these two but seriously.... someone is thoughtlessly clicking a mouse every couple of minutes without recognizing how easily a microphone picks up on every sound!! All I want to do is finish listening to the amazing Erin Brockovich, but it’s the most annoying distracting background noise. And also why are you clicking while interviewing?? Focus on your guest not so much on your screen, ughhhh 😤😩🤦🏻‍♀️👎🏼
