I use to work with a girl who has done Girls Gone Wild and my husband has been on the Girls Gone Wild bus. He claims he did not have to flash his jugs to get on. (Did Joe have anything to do with Guys Gone Wild?)

I was very hesitant to listen to the podcast due to the comments about the hosts monotone voice. However if there's anything that I've learned listening to podcasts is not to judge a podcast by a voice (hello Patrick hinds lol) . This podcast is so good. It is well organized, informative, and the part that I love the most is that the host is completely neutral. it is very hard to find people that feel the same way that I do. The host is truly on the side of justice and legality. A perfect example is in episode 30- The Producer. When Joe Francis got out of jail he was ranting about how his rights were violated because he was in jail for months with no just cause. Even though the audience felt great that Joe got a little bit of karma thrown back at him, the host agreed with Joe. And to be honest so do I. Even though the guy's a jackass, the laws and Constitution of this country should be upheld. Our system is too corrupt. The Host what does a great job explaining how corrupt everything is, to Everyone, not just one race, creed, societal class, etc. If you are hesitant to listen to the show , just go ahead and do it. I binge listened for days and now I can't wait for the next episode. Thank you concerned citizen.

Although it's true that big companies market formula "as good as " breast milk, I disagree with that being the only reason mother's are formula feeding. I breast fed both of my children for one year while working full time. It's hard! People are led to believe it's natural, but really, it's a learning process. It took me about two weeks of practice for me and my son to figure it out. Even with that experience, it took over a month with several lactation consultant visits to finally be able to feed without severe pain and bleeding. And once a mom goes to work full time all breaks and lunches are tied up pumping. For one year, 2 hours per day were spent pumping, not to mention the feeding when you get home and at night. Most people don't realize how hard it is. I wanted to quit constantly and switch to formula. Please put yourself in other people's shoes before mom shaming for formula feeding. Fed is best.

you can be pro breastfeeding and pro formula. This is a sad story but taking an opportunity to shame formula feeding parents is just as vile.

this could have been a favorite of mine but the narrator is pretty awful. Just really monotone and droning.... if he created this podcast he needs to just go ahead and pay someone to narrate. no shame in it.
