Unorganized

Though I love the idea and goal of this podcast, I prefer a more organized and mellow podcast to start my day. I appreciate what this podcast is doing for women, but that does not mean it isn’t susceptible to critique.

The great, the meh, & the nit picky

I’ve really enjoyed the topics and the variety of storytellers, and I’d like to check out Caveat next time I’m in NY. The hosts I find over the top a lot of the time: trying too hard to be funny and often coming off as stereotypical feminist man-haters instead of educated people insightfully challenging the patriarchy. Now for the nit picky. When you pronounce the word women the exact same way you pronounce the word woman, I get distracted from the probably insightful item you’re sharing. Just me? Maybe. Anyway, I needed a break, but I’ll probably be back.
