Love this podcast

Interesting, unconventional interviews and clever, thoughtful discussions. Not always my point of view, which is why I like it! Sam is a charming host and his personality shines through the show. The guest hosts have also been great. A great listen every time.

Used to like the show

Sadly, unsubscribed. Lately subtle snide remarks about female candidates running for president have been really disappointing. Literally spinning positive grassroots processes into negative “shady” aspects of folks’ campaigns. Super disappointed as this show used to be a relief to the more negative slant MSM has when covering politics.

Shelby Lorman episode

I'm unsubscribing based on what I heard in the first 10 minutes of the Shelby Lorman episode. Let me preface this by saying I have never read any works by Lorman, nor am I familiar with her in any capacity other than from what she said in this episode.

She said, "...there's a lot a lot of gaps in my learning, and I've found that there's a mixture of what I would say is what is usually male confidence with that 'I get it, people think that I get it.' where there isn't as much openness to being wrong." before going on to (seemingly jokingly) identify as a "man-hater". Given the entire supposed theme of the book she's discussing (being that the "good boys" who seem woke are also sometimes prejudiced), her comments seem a little too sincere. Either she is genuine in her expression of prejudice, or she isn't. If she isn't, her comments are about as charming to me as a high school idiot pretending to be racist for comic effect. Perhaps that's the whole point; to make people like me upset in a similar manner to women that are upset about the multitudes of men the world over expressing misogyny. Well, congratulations.

The fact that some people who speak the way she does call themselves feminists is the very reason I'm hesitant to identify with that group, despite the clear disenfranchisement and prejudice women endure the world over.
