If you're a social minded person interested in language, communication, and material politics - it's great!

Lulu lemons

Two narcissistic SJW’s who “other” people to death while actually being everything they claim to hate. To whom does this podcast even entertain? Did I do that right? Doesn’t matter. Don’t be an classist, hypocrite. *cringe*

LeeJames55 ,

Idiots

Two morons who are bad at using the English language telling you how “racist” it is. White women are becoming so self-righteous and pompous. These two dolts are perfect examples. If you like this podcast, question your life choices. You might also be a moron.
