Great podcast

I have been a long time subscription and my inner nerd enjoy learning new topics. The length is short enough for my attention span but I think some topics could be a few minutes longer for the hosts’ sake so there’s less pressure to feel rushed. The most recent episode about the possibility of a fifth force is one of my favorites. I like Lauren’s voice, she speaks clearly and there is no vocal fry which is quite common these days.

Cloying voice

My high school English teacher taught the girls in class not to perform their readings in the same cloying, sickly sweet, sing-song fashion we are subjected to in this podcast. Please find a professional presenter for this otherwise enjoyable program. Alternatively, send this one to a broadcaster school. Please.

Slow Down

I appreciate the short podcasts but she is talking way too fast. I like to listen while I am doing other things and I can’t catch half of what she is saying.
