Less Trans Stuff (Please?)

This is one of many “heterodox” pods I listen to, and while I quite like it, I wish this one would spend less time on the trans kids issue. It’s so overplayed and honestly, kind of boring at this point. We get it.

Hit or miss

Avoid episodes hosted by Claire Lehmann, she can barely get a word our without a half dozen "Ums". Life On Mars was a really tough listen. Why do people who can't speak feel compelled to host podcasts?

Pretty good

Jonathan Kay is getting better. The recent episode with professor Goda was excellent. He let the guest speak freely and didn’t keep interrupting as usual.
Excellent guest. Extremely knowledgeable.
