The Red Tea Detox
1 star

Hosts with “voice fry” turn me off from listening to what could be an interesting podcast series.

4 star

I’ve really enjoyed the first episode with Margaret Hoover however Elise Jordan really needs to speak a little slower! She’s very passionate and is making such great points about the topics but she talks so fast that her words become slurred and very difficult understand.

3 star

I was fairly disappointed in this first episode of the podcast. I've been really impressed by Steve Schmidt's most recent public statements about Trump and the Republican party. I consider myself a centrist democrat or solutionist. Provide solutions to problems and disregard tribes. This initial podcast felt tribal (whereas I was hoping for independant) and in all the talk of fiscal conservatism and upward trajectery of the deficit, I was absolutely appalled that there wasn't a single mention of the tax cut in regards to the deficit. The critic of the democratic party's solutions were superficial and failed to address what I was hoping to hear in which was some sort of middle road solutions. Yes, they don't like Trump but they essentially talked about Bush 1 ideas and layed out Democrats as typical 90s tax and spend. They will have a platform as long as long as Trump is around but unless they can draw in new ideas and ethos this podcast will likely have a limited run.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Keep up the great work. I was raised by Republican parents in Louisiana. I went to undergrad and law school in MS and LA respectively. But, now I am a 45 year old liberal progressive living in CO. Hotty Toddy! (Elise will know what that means ;)

In linguistics, a word is the smallest element that can be uttered in isolation with objective or practical meaning. This contrasts deeply with a morpheme, which is the smallest unit of meaning but will not necessarily stand on its own. A word may consist of a single morpheme (for example: oh!, rock, red, quick, run, expect), or several (rocks, redness, quickly, running, unexpected), whereas a morpheme may not be able to stand on its own as a word (in the words just mentioned, these are -s, -ness, -ly, -ing, un-, -ed). A complex word will typically include a root and one or more affixes (rock-s, red-ness, quick-ly, run-ning, un-expect-ed), or more than one root in a compound (black-board, sand-box). Words can be put together to build larger elements of language, such as phrases (a red rock, put up with), clauses (I threw a rock), and sentences (He threw a rock too, but he missed). The term word may refer to a spoken word or to a written word, or sometimes to the abstract concept behind either. Spoken words are made up of units of sound called phonemes, and written words of symbols called graphemes, such as the letters of the English alphabet.. 2477, power of words, cleveland clinic, 2017,
