Soothing voice

Your voice is super soothing and soft. Makes listening enjoyable.

Narrator’s voice

I can’t get passed the narrator’s voice. She sounds like she is straight up reading. The cadence of her speech is off. She has pauses in the middle of sentences, that are not natural. It was annoying.

Awesome podcast!

I really like this show. It’s short, concise, and there’s no personal opinions that affect the storytelling. Just pure true crime. Also a calm voice, sort of like a female Joe Pera. Will recommend to anyone who likes true crime!
