Tyfgnm ,

Decent but really weak on actual issues

This podcast is really solid in having reporters and guests that don’t use the word “like” continually in their delivery This alone should give them subscription status because their discussion is clean and clear!

The topics shift - great

Skip the shows where the title doesn’t seem right except understand you might screw yourself on a great discussion.

Overall: Unexpectedly Irrelevantly Mesmerizing

Lemonitus ,

Plagiarizing independent podcasters is unethical trash

Unless your episode about internet dresses that was an unattributed thinly-veiled copypasta of another reporter’s work supposed to be like ironic performance art.
