    TSHP351: Time to Be Kind

    People often suffer in silence. Many go through that trauma in silence. But when a high profile man or woman leaves us we are left to ask why, as a community. The death of Caroline Flack has asked us all some very big questions one of which is, why can we be so unkind?

So hard to listen to..

I’m really bummed out. I was very excited to listen to this podcast and learn some things but it is the most difficult podcast I’ve ever tried to listen to. The dialogue is awful on the sense of saying “yeah” back and forth 500 times to each other and I couldn’t even make it longer than five minutes and that was forcing myself in hopes it would get better. I am super under whelmed and disappointed

Mostly banal chatter

Listened to the episode about Avoidant PD and it took at least half way in (over ten minutes) to get to the issue after all the opening small talk.

Hosts speak too fast (had to slow down the speed, which I hate doing). One host spent an inordinate amount of time elaborating on his dislike of “labels” which seemed beside the point.

I didn’t find this very helpful in understanding the subject matter. Waste of time, finally turned it off.
