💜

the lady narrator is clearly very knowledgeable/prepared on the tales and listening to her speak some Mandarin (when she's pronouncing names) is really beautiful (it being a pretty language and her having a nice voice). her husband's voice is very soothing, I dig his sense of humor, and it's surprisingly fun/cute listening to their rapport. WE ALL MISS YOU TWO SO PLEASE COME BACK

Painfully slow, like both speakers suffer disability

Please come back!
