Interesting

This is worth a listen - it’s only let down by the old recordings of interviews which are almost unintelligible and then immediately paraphrased by the narrator. If they couldn’t be cleaned up more they should have either been left out or voice acted as they don’t add much by being there.

Fred and Rose Weat

Would be ok if the sound quality of the recorded conversations wasn’t so appalling.
