    March Bonus: Plandemic!

    March Bonus: Plandemic!

    Despite being almost 90 minutes long, our COVID Conspiracies episode covered just a fraction of the misinformation bouncing around the country in 2020. So to cover some of the viral myths and zombie statistics we didn't get to, we decided to have a little watch party for a coronavirus conspiracy classic: "Plandemic."

I can’t stop listening!

Such a great podcast. I’ve never done a paid subscription to a podcast before Maintenance Phase, but I could not get enough and needed more episodes! Even the episodes that are rough are so good; challenging, funny, heartfelt, and deeply compassionate. I love this podcast!!!

Can’t stop listening

So smart, so funny. I’ve listened to the whole catalogue at least twice.

Adding: and thank you THANK YOU for these episodes about the ongoing trans panic we’re experiencing. As a trans person with a very trans family, I don’t think I could bring myself to dig this deeply into what’s going on myself but it’s important to understand. These episodes feel like sitting with two good friends who are holding my hand and walking me thru everything I need to know, laughing and crying right along with me.
