Regret?

Am so proud of Mallory defending herself and her pure joy of something while Joanna looks down her nose at her.

Joanna seems to be starting to regret leaving Vanity Fair as her frustration with Mallory’s enthusiasm is palpable. They need to be in the same room together soon as Joanna is also annoyed by Mallory’s interruptions. It’s a thing that may work better when they are no longer in Zoom. Update: Mal needs to reduce her interruptions. Just let Jo complete a sentence.

Get Rid of Charles

You guys are wonderful, but Charles being contrary just to be a bit is tiresome and really ruins the show. Enough.

Constant Race Talk

I really dig parts of this pod but Van has to bring race up endlessly. It’s exhausting.
