Things are not always what they appear. A ghostwriter who pens eulogies, wedding vows, and work emails for his clients makes a case for the hidden help he provides.
Love this show but...
The ghost writer episode was very hard to listen to. The host’s opinion is clear and completely understandable, given that she identifies as a professional writer and poet.
I would wonder how a non-writer, non-poet, average person would feel about this topic. I for one (as a regular person) would fall on the side of indifference, and was a little unsettled at the hosts passionate vehemence toward the story’s subject.
The host shouldn’t be such an integral part of the show, maybe a guest host would have been a good idea for this particular episode.
The episodes are usually, (for lack of a better word) deeper than this. I hope Sarah Kay doesn’t inject herself, her bias, and her opinion so completely into the topic. Please just host the show, don’t let the show become about you. I think all of the other episodes have been great, and even moving at times.
Something as simple as a podcast can be so incredible. The episode Mood Changer has changed my life. Thank you whoever you are ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Intriguing, thought provoking, educational, and overall incredible! I have thoroughly enjoyed every single episode of this show! Definitely worth your time, to listen, and absorb! Wonderful job!
