The criticism of Stewart's first episode back made me laugh so hard. I like TDS, but it's so much closer to the center than what I'm used to listening to. Critics should listen to a few episodes of It Could Happen Here or I Don't Speak German to get some perspective.

This is the only podcast I listen to that's currently playing "reruns." Why? Cause the others get fair pay, and this one is audio from a TV show by a typical greedy studio. Pay your writers and actors fairly and stop trying to replace them with crummy AI

Strong agree about the birthday party incident: I'm autistic and have anxiety disorder, mostly around social anxiety. I've hidden my birthday from people when possible, and my employer respects us enough to ask each employee what we want for our birthday. A few have asked for cake, but usually, people just ask for a bag, box, or jar of candy and to be allowed to remain inconspicuous
