I Love His Style

Excellent podcast with very interesting topics.

What really sets this above the rest is the narrator’s deadpan tone - absolutely brilliant.

Well done, Concerned Citizen. Please keep up the good work!

Incredible

Incredible podcast, the only podcast I follow where I drop everything and listen when a new episode drops :)

Vocal fry

The hosts voice is hard to listen to, very flat the whole time. Also the background music is so annoying.
