Misleading title

Wayyy too political for a pregnancy podcast, host is really unbearable to listen to.

Very political

I thought this would be more about pregnancy and/or birth but seems she talks a lot about politics. Everyone has their own views on politics but I am trying to prepare for a baby and get insight and strength on having a baby and I was little taken back on how much she try’s to enforce her views onto her listeners. She did have some good insight on pregnancy but overall I will not be listening. (BTW I did vote and this has nothing against her views I just wasn’t looking for that in a pregnancy podcast and I wouldn’t recommend this podcast for someone trying to prepare for pregnancy and birth) I would also recommend that the name of the podcast be changed as it really doesn’t go with the type of podcast it is.
