I love the podcast but I’m thinking the girls are panicking about money: The new segments sponsored by companies you’re including in the segment? Jen admitting she was “blowing smoke” to a guest about a shampoo that’s just so-so? In general I love the news, the guests, the science and the skepticism...but I think the advertorial tone (sponsor as guest correspondent!) makes the show less trustworthy. So 5 stars for in general, but 3 stars for this month!

Too many ads

I love the podcast but I’m thinking the girls are panicking about money: The new segments sponsored by companies you’re including in the segment? Jen admitting she was “blowing smoke” to a guest about a shampoo that’s just so-so? In general I love the news, the guests, the science and the skepticism...but I think the advertorial tone (sponsor as guest correspondent!) makes the show less trustworthy. So 5 stars for in general, but 3 stars for this month!

Unfunny, out of touch, unrelatable.. I could go on. They started out strong and still some of the guests they’ve had were awesome, but it went south in 2019 for me. Ran its course.
