Gasp!!

Great content, but the sharp gasp the host takes after every sentence is pretty grating.

Really wish I could continue

Very interesting topics, but the narration is just unbearable. Listening to this podcast is as exhausting as it can get. Please work on neutral tones and please stop the sudden pauses. Unsubscribed, but will be checking once in a while.

Inconsistent Uploads

Content is decent and brevity is good for quick daily tidbits.
However for a daily podcasts it doesn’t seem to have podcast episodes available for downloading or listening daily and they come out in chunks once or twice a week. I’m giving this one more chance before I’m done and fed up with it.
