Big fan!

Love it! Big fan! Listener since 2017... maybe 2018? Who knows.

Seeing the negative reviews…

Maybe if you’re specifically attacking the 2 POC hosts in reviews, you have to work through some structural racist bias.

Maybe if millennial vocal fry is “grating” you’re a little sexist.

Please think through your internal bias before writing reviews.

Love you guys but…

Please fix the sound quality. It is getting hard to listen to. There is a tinny situation happening as well as hissing s’s and popping p’s . Also you can tell when hosts are moving back and forth from the mic. It makes it hard to listen to. The content is A+ but I’m having a hard time following the conversation bc of the sound.

Had to update the review because it’s gotten so bad.

Milly and Alise are terrible hosts. They are so uneducated on the topics and only use their personal stories not facts and evidence. Please please please remove them both. You can tell Amanda and Sami do research. Milly and Alise provide no insight and are nauseating to listen to. This podcast used to be my go to for up to date interesting news and commentary but it is way too much. I don’t want to unsubscribe but I know about 10 people who were loyal listeners that now have stopped because of these two. They are terrible interviewers and just all around not interesting to listen to. Don’t know what Betches is thinking having them on the podcast. Other reviews are horrible and a lot of them name these two and Kaitlin.
