Please no politics

Even though I am in-line with you party-wise, I did not come to a pregnancy podcast to hear about your political opinions! I get plenty of politics elsewhere and just seriously don’t want to hear it. I had several episodes downloaded and ended up deleting them all because I dreaded having to skip to the actual content.

So helpful.
