  1. Thanks for listening Bob. And I agree, it is very sad that an app like this is required but generation after generation we’ve proven that we can’t eliminate the harm one human will do on another. It’s just a horrible part of being a human it would seem.

  2. I think the Companion App is cool. But there’s part of me that wants to say WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH OUR SOCIETY WHERE IT SEEMS NORMAL AND LOGICAL THAT A WOMAN WOULD HAVE TO ADD AN APP TO HER PHONE TO CREATE A SENSE OR REALITY OF SAFETY FOR HER TO TRAVEL ALONE!

    I’m a dude. I’m a member of the population that is making this app necessary (I don’t think women are using it because they think another woman is going to put them in danger). And I don’t blame the creators for doing this app, but it just feels like there’s a house on fire and we’re creating stuff to track sparks or to ensure we don’t get ash on our cars or something.

    All that angst aside, I’m so glad to have found your new podcast.
