Meh

This used to be pretty entertaining. I’m not impressed with the show anymore. There are some hosts that don’t gel with each other. Maybe keep the line up consistent?
Hanna, Noreen and June are fun. I can barely handle Nicole Perkins.
The University history professor whose name escapes my brain is amazing. She is has a smart take and is very savvy.

Mixed feelings

Long time listener, disappointed in some recent hosts. Nichole Perkins is an outright racist, and I won’t be listening to any future episodes that include her. Slate, how can you let her racist comments go unchallenged? Almost disgusted enough to unsubscribe from The Waves.
