Tomeka fan club!

I have long been a fan of Allison and Gaby. I’m happy that now their podcast gives me the right mix of politics, mental health and ridiculousness. But I also love hearing the producer Tomeka chime in with her insights and observations at the end. She seems so sweet and I’d love to know more about her!

More love than disappointment

I used to get so excited about every episode that came out, but I’m starting to find myself having to force myself into listening through each episode. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy the podcast anymore, there have been episodes that I really enjoy listening to entirely, and there are plenty of parts throughout episodes that I enjoyed (just not the entire episode).
I’m finding that certain topics are being discussed in ways that are flippant/propaganda/kiss ass, though I know it’s from a good place. Instead of properly educating themselves on the topic and discussing the topic from all angles. I find that what is being said can end up being harmful in the end for some people.
