Excellent podcast

I really do enjoy this podcast. It is impeccably researched, professional in presentation, with a real thread of compassion running through it.
I feel that Laurah and Brooke really care about their subjects, it’s not about them but the closure that they are trying to bring to these sad situations. They have wonderful voices which also make listening easy. Thank you both!

I tried

I was brought to the fall line from mfm and I really really want to like it because the content is so good but I can’t get on with the audio. Her tone of voice is calming, but it sounds so practised and rigid, sometimes even auto tuned. I just find myself wondering how the editing was done and if it’s a real voice or a really good auto tuned voice and I end up missing half of the story.

Sound quality

I love the podcast content but find it really difficult to listen to as the sound quality can be poor. I have to adjust the volume repeatedly to get a consistent sound between sections
