Love it, but I wish they'd be braver

This is my favorite podcast; I'm a fan of all three hosts. They're funny, well-read, interesting, and compassionate. Unfortunately, the range of stories they cover each week has narrowed considerably, and these days they mainly stick to stories about animals acting weird or popping up in unexpected places. (I'd say at least 60% of their recent content has been in this vein.)

It's really a shame, because their views on humans, whether they're politicians or private citizens, are usually nuanced and novel. In the past year they've shied away from current events, perhaps because it's too much work to develop a well-considered "take" on the powerful, or because they don't want to be perceived as punching down on someone with their jokes. It also seems likely that they don't want to say anything that might get dug up years later and be used to derail their careers.

What does this apparent reluctance to push the hot button leave us with? Just the aforementioned wacky animals and stories about their engagement with products. They can still be funny discoursing on their favorite clothing brands or listing the places they order food from while drunk, but its a very small world they're inviting us into these days.

Not even news

Best podcast where they don’t even really talk about the stories a lot. It’s a good thing. They’re great.
