Loved it!

I seriously loved this interview and am so happy to have found you Carri! I love your interview style and grateful to have a black journalist to look up to!

The show doesn’t hold guest accountable

Used to like this show. I am all for redemption but right when the guest is telling their story of their failures and holding themselves accountable, the host cuts them off to hype them up. I want to hear the guest talk through their mistakes and how they came out of it. Not someone tell them how “great they are on TV.” If you want me to root for people, let me hear them lay out their mistakes and how they are fixing them. I was hoping for a deeper conversation. The host needs to practice being unbiased, letting the guest have space to dig deeper, and pulling out something I haven’t heard the guest say before. Help me leave the interview rooting for the person, not just knowing how you, the host, feels about them. Missed the mark.
