My Favorite Podcast

So enjoyable and inspiring to listen to. Always makes me happy listening to the stories guest share. I had a hard time finding a podcast that was interesting and the host wasn’t boring or annoying lol. Shelby does an excellent job at facilitating meaningful conversation and exploring some of the more difficult topics. 100/10 recommend.

REI claims they care. They’re just capitalist.

The host is fine- sometimes she provides some interesting stories. Often they are just boring. My real problem is how REI claims all their sustainable actions while broadcasting endless ads for the Ford Bronco Sport. Do you all understand global warming? Gas burning SUVs are a major contributor to CO2 emissions, and should not be purchased in 2021 new. The ad encourages people to drive to the mountains, REI should not encourage us all emit up to the mountains. Really ironic. You cannot have it both ways.
