Over all, a quality podcast, which is why I've been listening for a while, but a few things are leading me to unsubscribe and move on. At the top, here are pros, cons, and possible improvements.

-Well researched! ✅
-Great subject matter! ✅
-Hosts are clearly VERY smart. 🤓
-Needs more guest appearances and fanmail 🥳
-Needs more booze and booze talk (ingredients, background, and taste would all be great additions.)
- Somewhat boring delivery 🚫

This podcast sets an expectation that it doesn't deliver on. The description would lead you to believe that every episode has a drink and some lore. The episodes that follow through on this promise are some of the best in my opinion! However, MOST episodes are recorded sober, and at least half don't have a drink presented in the beginning at all. When a drink is presented, they spend two seconds on it and it's easy to miss. Maybe that's nitpicky, but booze is at least half the title AND the summary! I was interested in that half, dangit!

These kids are also drenched in purity culture. Wide eyed enthusiasm is always fun in podcasts, but neither Amanda or Julia are especially well-read and both can be unnecessarily harsh to even minor character flaws. Most importantly, they are so worried about offending someone, that it impedes their ability to go into any sort of depth. The repeated reminders of how separate "we" are from "them" and the multiple disclaimers can be jarring. I appreciate that they want to do the subject justice and be as inclusive as possible, but they are SO clean that it hurts what they are able to do with the audio in terms of research and comedy.

Which leads me to a major flaw. They can't make jokes. They clearly work very hard to make sure they have talking points, and are very sweet and naturally charming...They can even laugh at jokes that are already out there! (Even though more often than not, they don't. They just break the joke down until it isn't funny anymore.) But they are physically incapable of...making....a joke. They usually bring on close friends when they do have a guest, these and fanmail episodes are often the best ones in the queue! The introduction of a third element balances the sickly saccharine regular personalities. However these episodes are still too self-serious for "a boozy guide through creepy".

To be clear--I love inclusivity and openmindedness, but this is is not that. It is an unopinionated, generic version of it that comes from interacting with only one type of person in an internet bubble.

I had fun listening, I just haven't been getting what I wanted out of it... and I no longer feel that I'm getting anything out of it at all.
