My New Favorite Podcast

This show is excellent! I like all the hosts and I’m glad they added Nichole Perkins. This show is definitely not just for women, I think they thoughtfully interrogate a lot of interesting societal issues and have pointed me towards some great articles. They really strike the right balance between informative and entertaining. I’m a landscaper and I spent a solid ten hours of work knocking through the back episodes, it made the time fly!

So bad it’s like a satire of “women’s” podcast

I was originally so excited about the new diverse additions to the Waves but instead of adding more to the conversation these new hosts are so boring and predictable they have nothing new to offer. Their subjects and opinions are so boring and predictable it’s like a parody of itself. Such a shame.

Love the new hosts

I’ve listened to this podcast for years, but almost gave up on it when I could no longer handle 3 white women talking about the articles in the NYTimes style section (particularly after the Trump election). I love the new hosts, and hearing more diverse perspectives.
