Abby's inflections are a bit annoying. She makes every sentence sound like a question. Otherwise, great episode. Very informative. Thanks for the crash course!

Pretty good podcast, but for me I had to stop listening because we basically differ on everything as far as likes/dislikes go. We like different things, no biggy, and otherwise good podcast.

I think in the roller derby pod you talked about fact checking each other. You should do a '2 truthes and a lie' bit with each pod.
