Too loud/too much
I like the”Joy Reid” show and listen most days.
I think she’s as informative as some of the other podcasts I listen to. The problem, I am having with her show is in general, she is too loud, her voice is much louder than any of the guest that I have heard. Also, when she asks a question of her guests, she always has a small unnecessary commentary between the questions she asked, and when she allows them to answer, because of this, the time allowed for their answers are shortened, many times the guests can’t finish their answer. She talks a little to much at times.
I love Joy! I love an intelligent, beautiful woman doing such a great job!
Your 10/30/2023 10-minute monologue on Israel-Gaza situation was so right on!!
Joy, what you said was so right on and such a balance in our one-sided bloodthirsty world right now. You talked sense about being able to sympathize with civilian victims of both sides, denouncing hate against both Jews and Muslims, allowing free speech for both Jewish and pro-Palestinian students, and most of all needing to end the Israeli occupation of the Palestinians. THANK YOU for a dose of badly needed sanity, together with MSNBC hosts like Ari Melber who have also been able to present and sympathize with victims of both sides, and reach for a way forward for BOTH Jews and Palestinians to live in peace and security and dignity.
