Love the new hosts

I’ve listened to this podcast for years, but almost gave up on it when I could no longer handle 3 white women talking about the articles in the NYTimes style section (particularly after the Trump election). I love the new hosts, and hearing more diverse perspectives.

Unsubscribing

I’ve enjoyed some of the changes. But there’s one host I can’t listen to any longer. Unsubscribing Outward as well.

new hosts need to go

I loved this show for years with the previous hosts. I want the new hosts to carry the torch. They are not. They're giving feminism a bad name with their predictable, reflexive, unthoughtful takes. I have Slate Plus and get all the shows in one feed. This is the most painful listen/skip every week.
