Treat

Such a treat to listen! I’ve watched so many more great movies and tv shows because of this podcast. Love the words they use to describe the various pop culture items.

Too angsty to be fun

The title, topics, and intro music promise a "happy hour," invoking associations of drinks and unguarded honesty through humor. And sometimes it can deliver. But often I sense the hosts are so primed with anxiety about "problematic" ideas they encounter that it can have the opposite effect.

I don't mind people taking a bit of time to try to take a bit of effort to make the world a better place while we're here. But I have found people who are *too* on-edge or vigilant in perceiving injustices in the world it makes their stress contagious.

Three stars though because the hosts are articulate, well-versed, and keep the thread going well.
