Love this podcast!

At first I didn’t like the layout of alternate narration, but now I don’t mind. I love this podcast and the the subjects they cover. I normally don’t like listening to women-hosted podcasts because most have vocal fry or uptalk but I like her voice. PS I am a woman myself and like to listen to ‘death sex and money with Anna Sale’ and ‘fresh Air with Terry Gross’

Dull

It’s a woman and man with absolutely no personality reading a term paper you wrote in freshman year. Since they have no imagination they just take turns reading it out loud. Try this podcast if you have insomnia or if you just don’t think lively narration is for you.

Meh

If you like faux pearl clutching about the insidiousness of Nickelodeon for using too many paper towels to clean up slime on Double Dare and making slime shampoo in small bottles so kids’ parents would have to buy them more, this is the podcast for you!
