JoJo Bakka ,

Is the speed stuck?

Though the topics are good, I find the narrators read too slowly. I thought it was ASMR but the other narrators are faster.
The sound quality is poor too, some presenters sound like they’re in a box with the mic outside.
It’s got potential so I will stick with them for now.

Who could this be? ,

Get on with it

Too much waffle before main topic

Pavo singslive ,

Fascinating

Fascinating, varied stories told in a different way. Will look forward to future episodes.
