It grows on you
I initially thought that about Robin’s voice too but to be honest it has grown on me. It’s unique.
I don’t like to get personal, but the host’s voice is the vocal equivalent of Comic Sans, which is highly unsettling on a true crime Pcast. Maybe think about a bit of pitch training? Just a suggestion. Otherwise content is solid enough.
