I was SO pumped for this podcast. I bought the art book, had been reading it, and then the first episode of this podcast came out. I was so excited to get all this extra insight to the show and production etc, but honestly the only thing ruining it for me is the host. Very rude, interrupting her guests, and I'm sooo over hearing the word "gotcha." I get it she's a huge fan, but so are the rest of us? That's why we are listening to the podcast, to hear about our fave thing, not her interruptions. It's also kind of stressful and makes the pacing of these interviews feel rushed because the host just kind of acts like she's trying to get it over with. So frustrating hearing Rebecca's soothing voice paired by "gyaahcha!!!"
I also have to say that if you, like me, are having a hard time overlooking the host, buy the art book! Most of the things the guests talk about in these interviews are expanded on more already in the book, plus you get to support the show and see awesome early arts and things. All in all I love this podcast though, i love hearing everyone's insight.
