If you’re looking for an in-depth, donnish analysis of this show or book that fits the whispery public-radio stereotype, this is not the podcast for you. This is more chit-chatting with your friends or coworkers about a show you’re both really into the morning after it airs. Kelly & Molly are both quite intelligent and articulate though, and I find their commentary insightful.They discuss differences between the book and the show and provide their interpretations of elements of both. I also find it interesting when they consider the story from their own frames of reference and talk about why things that take place are so deeply disturbing either inherently or as parallels to current events.As other reviewers have mentioned, there is a lot of laughing and a lot of jokes, and the overall tone is generally light-hearted which for me is helpful in discussing subject matter that is so deeply troubling. I love that they make a point to repeatedly remind listers to take care of themselves as they journey through the book. They get it! I also have to disagree with reviews that think the discussion is rooted in the counterproductive and extreme left. It seems situated instead in the middle of the comfortably-woke zone that addresses signifiant issues but is no so far left that it kills the chance for meaningful dialog.
