Not great but I want to like it

I really enjoy their choices for review, but it’s pretty frustrating when no one can seem to remember basic details from the movies or shows they are discussing. Perhaps having an outline or more structure would help. I really want to like the show, but the lack of clarity of the details is distracting.

Vocal fry, "like," up-speaking have driven me away!

I see that I'm not the only person who is tormented hearing these sounds coming through my headphones. I have noted the names of the three women who did the "Fleabag" episode so that I can make sure never to listen to them on any podcast again. I made an exception for the live "Culture Gabfest" that featured Ms. Kang—I've never missed one of their shows—but her incessant "likes" and vocal fry ruined the episode for me.

Unbearable vocal fry

I rarely write reviews, especially for podcasts, but this was so grating and unbearable that I felt compelled to share. The vocal fry and vocal tones are awful and it makes this the absolute worst to listen to. It’s cringey and while I know vocal fry is a personal pet peeve I can’t imagine other people actually enjoying this when there are so many better options out there. Avoid.
