Slow your voice down!

Even though I am annoyed at the speed of speech and constant loud inhaling,
The information is great👍

It’s all human

Vogelbaum’s voice is perfectly understandable and lovely. I don’t hear any biases that people talk about. Love to hear something amazing. Great job!

Interesting info but hard to listen to

I like the short episodes and have found quite a few that I wanted to listen to but after the first two I had to stop. The narrator has a nice voice but the cadence and speed are very hard to understand. I think if she slowed down and worked on cadence/inflection she would sound really nice.
