delightful AF

I love this podcast. I love that the topics are so pleasent and joyful, and aren't too tied to current events, so I can listen to old episdoes and still enjoy them. I also love that there aren't sponsors mentioned in each episode so it's easier to binge a bunch of episodes in a row. lastly, I love Colleen and Neil. They are lovely. .

Disappointed

Generally I find Neil and Colleen to be thoughtful hosts, but recently I tuned into an episode about recycled Olympic medals and found myself pretty shocked. Neil and Colleen liked the idea of competing in the sports of archery and curling, because then they could be “more portly.” Neil did a vocal impression of a fat person competing in archery. What? Colleen ended the episode by joking about larger people wearing spandex bodysuits, cackling about how funny that would look. Really? The way they address this topic is offensive; imagine they were behaving this way about someone with disabilities, or someone gay, or even someone who was a person of color. If you’re not a member of the group that you’re joking about, then you’re not punching across, you’re punching down. People with bodies of all shapes and sizes and abilities deserve to be treated respectfully and not openly mocked. I’m sad that two people I really like don’t seem to see what’s hurtful about their words.

Positivity

Colleen and Neil are the best! I listen to them at the end of my daily news pods to help keep me from falling into a pit of despair.
