You love to see it

This is the only time that I’ve gone back and listened to all previous episodes of a podcast after I found it.

PeterFries ,

The only podcast that makes you say the thing that’s the title of the podcast

Three consistently funny, genuinely decent hosts with great chemistry riff on all the important topics of the day. What more could you want in a podcast?

david and carole ,

Like, I like, tried to like.

I was so interested in the episode titles! The Cute hosts have chosen deep thinking topics that all can learn from. The hosts seem congenial and smart.
Here’s the rub: the word “like” is so culturally embedded in all American vernacular that it’s crossed deeply into journalism. It’s the new “um, uh.” (It’s not that new). All I could hear in this podcast was the word “like” over and over.
I enjoyed the subject matter but the play time would be shortened considerably if the “like” words were eliminated.
