I'm binging this podcast for a second time. Actually I didn't make it so the way through the first time because the world went crazy. So I'm starting again and I'm so excited. I just loved this!

The host managed to drain any interest in it by making it about her, and as for the continual interruptions with ads for other podcasts. l stopped after 3 episodes... couldn't take the host or Wondery any more.
