Scandalous!!

I enjoy listening to you John! I’m hooked and will be searching for other podcasts you’ve done. Thrilling story about the fraudster. I find it extremely hard to listen to her fake deep voice, it’s grating and it doesn’t suit her. I don’t believe for one second that’s her real voice, it’s definitely an part of her act.
