Marge's daughter ,

Intelligent, likable host

I enjoy this podcast, especially the episode with W. Kamau Bell. Interesting guests, topics, and talk.

venice Joe ,

Super judgey. Like the church lady of recovery.

Not sure what happened. Normally find the insights to be interesting but that piece in the Atlantic about Hunter Biden came off like a finger wagging old woman clucking about the outfits the girls were wearing in church. Recovery is so much more than what you did or saw. Yea, we get you don’t like Hunter Biden lot in life but how bad is yours? Get thee to a nunnery.
