Always Reruns!

How is every show a rerun?? At least, that’s what it feels like. I enjoy listening when it’s a new episode, but I feel that is rare.

Tired & Downhill

Can’t listen anymore. The show used to be interesting and have so much depth, now they repeat shows over and over, and when there is a new podcast, it’s typically with a chef who’s trying to hawk a book or restaurant.

Great when it is a new episode

For the past couple of years this show really relies heavily on repeats - either whole shows or a cut and paste of old stories. A shame. The content is excellent
