Great pod, eye opening and interesting!
Good except for the Dagne Dover ads...
Pretty good, except I can't handle the Dagne Dover ads. Like every Gimlet show, there are way too many ads on The CUT, and they are way too long. Gimlet, I understand you are trying to be "prestige" podcasting, but please take a cue from NPR and keep it short and sweet. Anything else seems disrespectful to listeners.
Why is this only 4.5 stars?!?
Rating this podcast because you hated one episode is absurd. Skip the episode and move on.
This is one of my favorite podcasts. Real topics, real feelings, incredibly relatable.
THANK YOU GIMLET FOR THIS! Keep the episodes coming!
