Good Content, Annoying Voice.

It would be awesome if there were no vocal fry.

Disappointed by Amazon sponsorship

I really enjoyed this podcast in the past, but won't be listening anymore. I'm extremely disappointed by the Amazon sponsorship and plugs. Amazon's extraordinary abuses are too well-documented at this point to imagine that the host is not aware of them. Given Amazon's failures to protect its workers during Covid19, the hypocrisy of featuring an Amazon plug in the middle of an episode about managing grief during the pandemic is especially gross and disheartening. I won't be listening anymore.

Potter's friend ,

I just can’t

Really? Two separate commercials for a podcast that is usually in the 8 - 10 minute range is infuriating. No thanks.
