Interesting topics, annoying narration

I’m listening to the first episode which is very interesting but my lord the wonsn’s narration is so affected. She unnaturally stretches out her words and makes everything sound dramatic even when it’s not(eg. JOseph was twentyFOUR years ooooold). Please stop already.

Curious nurse

I have been hooked from the very first episode! The humanistic way you treated the “Elephant Man,” while explaining the medical anomalies was both fascinating and touching. I am still getting caught up to the most current episode, but I am enjoying the journey so much, I don’t want to rush it. Thank you!!
