So awkward & seems like a novice podcast now

By Spysquidoid - Dec 02 2019
Read more
I started listening when it was Bridget & Emily & really liked their chemistry & knowledge, but Anney always sounds so uncomfortable & awkward I was surprised she was chosen for the show. I thought she was just new & getting the hang of podcasting, so I stopped listening as much when Anney came on (I’m not trying to be mean, I actually like her & relate to her sometimes, I just don’t think she is good at podcasting. She seems like a writer more than a host?) It seemed like Bridget was ready to move on & when she did I just stopped listening all together. Today I tried a new episode & I liked the guest but the hosts Samantha & Anney just seemed to be under-qualified & unprepared because they just sounded like awkward beginners still. I’m not trying to dump on them, but I honestly don’t think it’s going to get better until they get hosts that are more charismatic or have more interesting/informed conversations so I’m just gonna unsubscribe....
