what's up with stupid political ads playing over the podcast? listening to a podcast and the ad at the top just starts playing. it was not an ad within the podcast it was an ad on castbox. that's a real fast way to get people to delete the app

I can't stand the shallow, sanctimonious double-think of Aisha's identity-based politics. She takes a job based on identity politics, then manages to be offended about being asked to represent others who ostensibly share what is cast as an identity. If within-group differences are larger than between group differences--as they are--then what's the justification for group-based measures of diversity? Also, it's absurd to cordon-off certain behaviors from public discussion or scrutiny merely because they're religiously based. E.g., shouldn't we be asking ourselves why it would ever make sense to reinforce gender differences in the workplace (such as by not shaking hands with the opposite sex)? What if I dont want to shake hands with Muslims, or with people of a different race, or age, or nationality, or physical ability? She's far too obnoxiously self-righteous given her apparent consideration. We don't need more of that in society, and I hope we liberals expurgate this nonsense very soon.

another rerun. I wouldnt have such a problem with this if they were just straightforward about it and let us know like this American life does, but instead they package it as a new episode and dont make any reference to.it having been previously aired. Ridiculous.

I first listened to and commented on this almost 2 years ago and I couldn't imagine the pain he was in. since then I gave birth to and then shortly after lost my son, my only child and my world. I know what it feels like now and his strength to hold it together the way he did is amazing
