Watered down content

Lately, the contents have become more and more watered down, less and less usefulness and education are offered.

Thank you!!

I have listened to this show for a number of years and with a number of different hosts. I’m currently pursuing my PhD in clinical psych and find this show SO helpful in learning how to illustrate concepts for my own clients, and it has helped me learn during my own training as well. SO grateful for the work they are doing to help get empirically based treatments and techniques to more people :)
