Hard to listen to

I don’t want to be rude. But maybe this can be taken as constructive feedback.
Dan is lovely to listen to.
Litzy constantly giggles and laughs, even when nothing is funny. I find myself cringing, dreading it. I’ve only recently subscribed, and I’ve listened because I love the topic - but her intense voice, and inappropriate laughter, will lead me to unsubscribe unless this changes. There is help available for those of us that need guidance with public speaking.
