  • congratulations (chris d'elia) → made fun of terry crews for coming out with his sexual assault story, which was just... not ethical and being a comedian is not an excuse
  • cults (parcast network) → so campy in a way that makes the topic unserious + the psychological analyses were never done by a professional so for how long can you just spew information you found online to a mass audience lol
  • getting curious with jonathan van ness (earwolf) → just... so tired of him
  • the history chicks (panoply) → lost interest

  • serial (npr) → lost interest cause I listened to it so many times
  • spectacular failures (american public media) → the host hated climax and that pisses me off lol
  • stranglers (stitcher) → lost interest
  • to live and die in la (tenderfoot) → boring
  • up first (npr) → reported on the xi jinping / duterte meeting in the wrong light, which was very offensive to me as a filipino person
  • up & vanished (tenderfoot tv) → case got solved! so the more the host kept milking it, the more I didn't wanna keep listening
  • sword & scale (wondery) → the host is a PIECE OF SHIT MISOGYNIST and he VIOLATES THE PRIVACY AND WISHES OF THE FAMILY & FRIENDS OF VICTIMS so thank u, next!
