Too much politics, just how I like it.
I think it’s idiotic to claim that media should be limited to the one genre it is originated for. Thoughts like that lead to only consuming media that panders to your views, and eventually extremism that you can see in these reviews. In any case, the podcast is great! I’ve listened to every episode, and once I’ve heard an episode, I can use it to fall asleep, so the reruns aren’t even a problem. Also, I know that almost nobody comes to the reviews to learn about the podcast, rather laughing at the wacky opinions of random people on the internet, so hello there! I hope you’re having a good day, and hope you got some enjoyment out of this interesting novel of a review I’ve written. At least it’s better than that one about fast-talking.
So much better than the movie. What fun!
Very far left commentary that ignores the other side of the story.
