Stop with the jolting music on your podcasts

The outro music does not match the vibe of the podcast. It’s loud and harsh. The narrator is predictable and pleasant. It’s jolting to the listener when podcasts choose obtrusive loud music to accompany their episodes. Please consider a more peaceful alternative.

Overdramatic narrator, but good stuff

Idk why the narrator feels the need to emphasize even the most benign sentence which honestly de-emphasizes the actual important information. Otherwise, it’s p good.

La Quinta Chiro

I am enjoying this podcast but it is also frightening. I have chronic back pain. I have tried just about everything possible to alleviate pain. I Visited a chiropractor/doctor in La Quinta CA. I sat through an Informational meeting and saw the doc for a consult and one treatment. He was pushing treatments beyond normalcy. I have never experienced the hard sell he was pushing. I know he does stem cell treatments. His waiting room was packed both times I was there. He was a huge turn off for me. Huge. I walked away and after they called me multiple times and sent literature to me over and over they finally stopped ‘harassing’ me. I am concerned for all the senior citizens I saw there and their being sucked into his hard sell, in desperation. I am 55 and do my research thoroughly. I question everything. Not everyone does that or is capable of this. It concerns me.
