Who is CAROLINE CALLOWAY?!

I love anything Vanessa puts out & I've listened & absolutely loved this podcast since Day 1. However... WHO IS CAROLINE CALLOWAY?? My dog has more Instagram followers than her. The entire episode CC talked about how famous she is. No. These very niche influencers are only "famous" in their very niche area. Their narcissistic approach to the interviews is tiresome & a waste of our time. PLEASE please please, from a legit fan: can you stick to names more people know or at least have an interesting story!

No thanks.

The way this podcast sympathizes with the scammers/frauds/etc they are discussing is nauseating and wrong in so many ways.
