You’re welcome

Can Ann Terguson stop saying “you’re welcome” when being thanked for being on the show? I’ve never heard someone say this before. Other people say Thank you so much for having me or something like that. How self important is she to say You’re welcome to something like that like she’s doing the host a favor. Maybe she is doing him a favor but I can’t imagine someone who is actually popular and widely sought after being so arrogant as to say You’re welcome for something like this.

Mostly positive

Listen to manyof these and they are typically good at summarizing the topics. Sometimes the answers are too simplistic and leave me wanting more. The hosts are all good and knowledgeable And one question. What happened to JR Whalen’s voice. He sounds like he got braces or something. He’s become more distracting for me

Are they even researching their topics?

This podcast uses the format of a host interviewing a “reporter” about a topic. Of course the host and “reporter” have agreed to the questions in advance, so why does the “reporter” have almost no fact-based information to share? There are no actual events or examples, just broad generalizations. And for a rehearsed script, the “reporter” doesn’t seem very prepared to answer the questions.

Do your homework! This is the Wall Street Journal. C’mon guys.
