good podcast but takes too long to get to the topic
When this podcast finally gets to their episode topic, it's really good, very helpful and interesting discussion. The problem is that you have to listen through so much extraneous chatter before the hosts get on topic. In one episode, about what people without a spiritual community can do for help in a crisis, it took over 40 minutes before anyone even started talking about that topic. In the most recent episode, I was treated to a long segment about one host's experience with a "juice fast" and how if she didn't regulate her eating that or gastric bypass was "the only alternative", and as a fat-positive feminist, it was really upsetting to sit through. I wanted to say "yes, there is another alternative, accept your body as it is and stop hurting it with diet plans and fad "cleansing" that's, as she found out, really damaging to your body. In any case, it was again, a long time before they got onto their topic, and i felt like I was basically listening to someone's online diary.
