Deirdre Bosa episode was awesome Molly Wood is doing great.

I am glued to this show.

The Deirdre Bosa episode was awesome. The content was rich, the debate/discussion was very holistic, and the overall quality of the conversation was amazing. We want more guests like DeBo.

Also, what is with all the hate notes for Molly? Seriously, grow up everybody. Molly brings a well rounded perspective to the conversation. She is so well read, smart and always spot on. I can’t listen to the show without Molly on it.

Annoyed

Molly is way too scolding to listen to and the other guests all seem to be uptalking tech journo idiots who all say "Right?" in the middle of every single sentence.

Roe vs Wade

It’s been nice if y’all would’ve commented on a gregarious, if I can use that word, of the violation of trust by obviously someone of the same mind in this episode for leaking the draft opinion. Not sure if I can listen to this woke podcast duo anymore.
