Great podcast - "vocal fry" has fizzled out!

2018 - new review!
I haven’t listened to the podcast in almost a year because of the bizarre vocal affectations of the hosts - faux stuttering, upspeak, Sarah’s unbearable & over the top vocal fry, etc. I just couldn’t take it.

Tuned in by accident for the December 18 show. Imagine my surprise when I heard Sarah talking - with NO vocal fry! It was so enjoyable to listen to her. I don’t know what she did but it’s about 85% gone!

Sarah - I’m so glad! Thank you! Keep It up! Matt still had the dreadful upspeak but at least he and Sarah put an end to the stuttering. Sounds 200 times better!

Original review ...

These guys always offer well thought out and sometimes surprisingly fresh takes on today’s policy issues. They represent much of what is smart and clever about their generation and quite frankly, give me hope. Unfortunately, if "vocal fry" is an issue for you, you will not be able to get through this podcast. All 3 presenters employ it and it’s very distracting. I’m hoping they’ll offer a transcript as a work around - because I’d hate to miss out on their perspectives.
