Please, STOP saying LIKE!!!!!!

This is mean, dismiss me as petty, whatever makes you feel good about yourself, but; like,like, like, like, like, like, he was like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like,... think it’s an exaggeration? Give one of your episodes a listen and count them. Guest comes on and most of the time they also resort to; like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like,.... At least you don’t resort to the vastly over used “literally” as much as some other podcast folks, I’ll give you that. I gave your podcast the old college try, there’s much that could be enjoyed here, but but the experience is ruined by the hideous overuse of “like”, it just is, and you can dismiss me as a crank, fine, you can try to rest on the notion that “this is how people talk now”, sure, but not challenging yourselves into a bit of constructive listening of your own show, condemns it to sounding as though it’s produced by enthusiastic teenagers who’re clinging to a forever state of tentative adulthood, as if you’re afraid of speaking DIRECTLY, and resort to forced metaphor (that’s what “like” is) because direct expression of thoughts is either rude or I don’t know,... It’s an affectation that a segment of the population of young folks, mostly white too, have taken on, probably in the same mindless way that previous generations took on speech patterns,... Please, at least consider the idea that there are different ways to speak than resorting to “like” for every sixth word.
