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!

Another longtime listener unsubscribing 😭

I was the biggest Double X fan. It took my rural, conservative views and challenged my thinking. They made sure to have a mix of serious political and lighter topics, and even included different points of view! I listened to every single episode. It really influenced how I grew into my feminism. The hosts provided facts and different viewpoints, and really gave you a chance to think about the topic and come to your own conclusions. The new show, not so much. It’s an echo chamber of wokeness. If you disagree, not only are you wrong, but you’re a terrible human being. If you’re hyper progressive and love hearing your own ideas echoed back to you, then you’ll probably enjoy this podcast. If you’re not, don’t bother. It’s breaking my heart to unsubscribe, but it’s not even close to being the show it used to be with the old hosts.
