1) I love the podcast and everyone on it. I love Emily Bazelon. 2) The phenomenon I call "Emily-splaining" or" Emily Interruptus" is actually kind of charming in the regular podcast, especially when it provokes some sort of gentle rebuke. 3) Just listening to the Twin Cities episode and in the first half, at least, nobody else could even finish a thought. All to say that I'll never stop listening. Brilliant people..actual personalities..discussing important stuff. I'd like, though, to hear a another few seconds of others' thoughts sometimes.

When is someone going to point out to Bazelton that her habit of interrupting is increasing? It’s irritating.
