It’s the gossipy, smart, witty conversation you’d have if all of your girlfriends (and some of your guy friends too!) were experts on the hot topics of the moment. High spirited and high minded, we don’t argue or whine but seek to get to the heart of the matter, over cocktails (or wine).

Nancy Jo Salas
I’m sorry, I’ve been online dating for over 10 years. Your experience or lack there of is what you make of it. She needs to own what she’s done and written about, and is frankly butt hurt about someone asking her hard questions. She’s clearly a justice warrior who isn’t owning the fact that she’s in her 50s and hooking up with 20 and 30 somethings. Also, no one cares your a journalist or educated… as the news has recently showed us all this means is you can regurgitate a narrative.
I lived this till Christina left. She was the only one able to give a fair assessment of both sides. She could actually see an issue from another perspective and would steel man other arguments. Danelle seemed to struggle to see things from others perspective. Once Christina left, I left too.
Gen Z Needs U
I’m so sorry this show is ending. I am in my early 20’s and I found this show to be one of my favorites podcasts. I love the witty jokes and profound analysis on modern feminism. I grew up with a fear of having children and being tied to a man. I loved getting a different perspective from Danielle and Christina. Lastly, rest assured that Gen Z still read. I read Danielle’s brilliant book and Christina’s The War on Boys, as well as other books by guests on the show. So sad to see this end but I am look forward to your next adventures and work. Thank you 💗
