Maggie Rulli please read this!

I really enjoy this podcast and think Omid does a great job. However can’t stand how irritating Maggie Rulli is. Why does she have to do that fake laugh after everything she says and why can’s she just speak normally instead of that fake, bubbly, annoying enthusiasm. It’s so cringe! Just talk and act like a normal person like Omid does.

Some things to fix

I love listening to your podcast every week but there are some things that need to be tweaked:

1: Omids voice is too soft or he needs to speak into the mike compared to anyone elses. Even the ads are louder. I listen in the car while I am driving and have to turn the volume up real high when Omid speaks and turn it down when others speak.

2: They all need to stop banging the desk or touching anything while on ‘air’ the sound of whatever they are doing comes through and detracts from the story you are trying to listen to.

3: Does anyone listen to the pod casts as we hear it after it’s recorded to hear all of the above?

Otherwise keep up the great stories

Appalling mindless banter

I’m a royalist, but this is awful mindless conversation. 😥
