Addicting and trite

What I love:

They don’t try to be likable, pandering, pitying like so many other podcasts do They can’t help but piss everyone off at some point and yet they still have quite the following.

They change their mind, viewpoints constantly. Rather than tow the party line they say out loud our conflicting inner thoughts about the mess of the world.

No one is safe. Whenever I happen to fall into their demographic of whoever they are picking on this week, I find it grating and I listen to something else, but then I’m back next week to hear them pick on someone else. Healthy? No. Addicticting? Yes.

The bad:

The most reasonable critique is that they seem totally blasé about everything and have the vocal fry to match their attitude that nothing matters. For some reason this doesn’t bother me. Maybe because it’s also my wavelength.

I do think that Anna tends to dominate the convo and can sometimes speak round and around the same idea which is usually some take that ‘wammin are bad but actually that’s ok?’

Lastly, although it’s iconic, the cover photo. When I have Apple CarPlay on I have to quickly switch to maps because it looks like I’m straight up watching porn in my car.

Final thoughts:

This show does best when the hosts tackle a specific piece of writing and have a discussion. Even more interesting when they pick apart something more historical and obscure. I like to feel like I’m learning something.

Great Broadcast! 👯‍♀️

I used to appreciate their commentary but it’s gotten noticeably worse. HOWEVER, the show now serves an essential function in my life. Instead of going on social media myself I now wait for the free episodes to come out and let these two gorgeous dames curate the best and the craziest content from social media (and NY Mag). This allows me to stay in touch while reminding me that the internet is a huge waste of time. Thanks, ladies 🥰

I've fallen in love with both of them

I go back and forth every episode deciding which gal I’m in love with. It often changes with each new story or whimsical sentence that grabs my attention. I feel like I’m in the room, listening to the two loves of my life talk about this crazy world we’ve been dropped into. It is refreshing to know that there are intelligent, bright, and funny women in this life. I rarely find humans who make me feel as though I’m not the only one sitting in this theater.
