Good idea

This podcast is a great idea, but all the noise and music needs to chill. Music is way too loud and over powers the guest. Especially with the Dom. Kinda annoying.

Garage

Hosts boring, lame topics

End Stigma!

I love this pod, it helps bring awareness to so many things that are stigmatized. It honestly has been helping me unshame my own insecurities. The episode about the Dominatrix really opened my eyes to the difficulties and stigma surrounding sex work. Each episode is amazing and I love what Jor is doing. There is so much shame and stigma in this world. For someone to finally pull out the stigma and publicly recognize it in a kind and genuine way is amazing. Thank you, Jor, and I wish you luck in all the episodes to come!
