Thanks to Katy, Team and Guests for the excellent episode on Cup of Knowledge. A helpful exploration of the power of mechanistic thinking and humility.
The content of the podcast is brilliant. Unfortunately, Katy Milkman did not make any effort, apparently, to fix her severe vocal fry at the end of sentences. Her vocal fry is so intense that we get distracted. Despite being outstanding, it is quite uncomfortable to listen to this podcast. Please get rid of this creaky voice at the end of sentences! A speech therapist is advisable to make this podcast one of the best, as it deserves to be.
