Enjoyable

Enjoyable and not political but included options. Enjoyable.
Thank you

Like, this, like, show, like, is, like, awful! The host has a vocabulary of a 13 year old teenybopper. I counted 16 likes in 180 seconds. An embarrassment to the podcast industry.

Listening while traveling through Europe

Thanks for keeping me company on some train rides :)

Listening to relative older episodes on Barcelona, Berlin, Prague & Vienna but I can’t wait to catch up on all of them when I get back to the US.
