Weird episodes lately...

EDIT: I’ve tried giving this podcast a chance to push through this terrible season, but it seems to just get worse. It’s changed to something like a dating app review podcast. Changed to 1-star. While the first season remains some of the best 5-star podcasting I’ve ever listened to, Invisibilia has become a disgrace to the platform.

Original review:

I absolutely LOVED the first handful of episodes and listened to them multiple times when they were released. The topics and reporting were fascinating and incredibly well done!

In the last few months (maybe since a co-creator left???) the topics and transitions between stories often leave me thinking, “Wow, that was just... bad. Did she really just transition by calling herself an idiot??”

I’m sad to only give this podcast a 3-star as I truly love the old episodes, but so many of the new episodes leave me disappointed. :( Maybe Lulu Miller is the secret weapon that needs to come back!

Far and beyond my favorite podcast!

Outside of a few riveting story podcasts, I have never gotten into one and stayed interested the whole time. Until this one. Every episode is insanely different and I love that they are all story based and not just droning on about scientific fact. The premise of this show could make a VERY boring one but they’ve turned it into something I look forward to everyday.
