Dan - I've listened to every show you've ever recorded, left my own recorded question for your podcast, tell all my friends about your show and consider myself a fan - a word I sparingly use. I don't always agree with your advice, but I have nothing but respect for the way you approach your callers, readers and guests with thoughtful, insightful words.
That said, these last two podcasts have been the only two I have disliked since you started recording, and this made me want to unsubscribe until your show resumes its pre-Lucy format. She reminds me of every fag hag I've ever known and frankly - considering your pre-aired thoughts on the negative aspects of the fag-hag relationship- I feel it's hypocritical to bring her along for the ride just because she's a new woman in your life that happens to giggle a lot and agree with everything you say. Literally. Everything. That is not conversation, that is flirting.
Also, the gay man + straight woman thing is making the show kind of "vaginas-are-gross-ish." If people love the idea of a woman side-kick, maybe get a lesbian to even things out. Or a sidekick that has any knowledge of relationships and sex. No offense at all to her.
And the food thing. Please, please, please stop.
