Great!

Straight to point, no frills, quality podcast

Lacks originality

There is already a podcast named The Read. This person obviously is flying by tue seat of their pants and did no research. If they weren’t diligent enough to see that there was another podcast by the same name how thorough are the opinions and statement that they make on their show. Statements made up with false information I would imagine.

Issue with the Name of Your Podcast

There is already a podcast called The Read. How hard is it to come up with another name? They have worked very hard to build their brand. You shouldn’t be allowed to use the name of their show to build your base.
