I just didn’t like it I guess.
Starting to sound entitled
I used to love this podcast, but the girls are starting to sound like really entitled women that consider themselves the ultimate authority on what people should do/feel/believe. They tout opinions/things that they love until they get popular, and then all of a sudden it’s not cool anymore and the girls are slamming it in a podcast. Also, sometimes it gets kind of Asian fetish-y (only East Asian because that is the only “Asia” they discuss)
