Love it

On of my favorites! ❤️

Good content, unbearable voice

Is there any way that the listeners could have the option to switch storytellers? The current two women have obviously done their research and know their topic well- it is just that their voices are not the most soothing to listen to... I belive this podcast could do so much better if someone else presented it! It’s a shame that people should be turned off from this good content because of this.
