Engaging Content, Enraging Presentation

I feel it’s wonderful that the experiences of the folks brought on TDD are being shared to help empower victims and give awareness to others, but I can’t help but feel like they’re being milked for every bit of runtime (ie ad rolls) as possible.

There is no reason some of these stories need to be multiple hour-long parts. Part of that is definitely a need to edit down the stories themselves, but the real issue is constant interruptions and backtracking. This includes VERY loud screaming and other reactions from the hosts that can be painful at times. Sound quality in general is sub par for a podcast these days.

There are plenty of reviews with these complains going far back and it seems like these issues have only gotten worse. The recent LepreCON two-parter has to be the most egregious case so far. The first part had nothing of real interest and should have been the first 15 minutes of a 40-50 minute episode. It’s hard not to call this show a content farm for ad revenue in its current form and I hope this is not the creators intention.

Excellent and a must hear!

I fell in love with MacKenzies personality and stories on IG. So I jumped when she mentioned the podcast. I was worried when I heard she wasn’t doing it alone but I love love love who they have per partnered with. Hannah and MacKenzie play off each other and the energy is amazing. I love their hearts and stories and tell everyone about this podcast!
