Your recent episode about the Facebook ads boycott included plenty of accusations, without a single piece of evidence.

You also blamed consumers for not holding the same opinions that you do. bad marketing mindset.

It’s your fault for being out of touch with the market. Not their fault for having a different opinion than you.

Been listening for the last few months, and this was the last straw. Unsubscribed
