Format 5 Ifeoma 1

I love this format, but the word is ASK not axe. I find myself wanting to skip Ifeoma Dike’s episodes. It’s not just that word but so many inflections that are distracting.

What's with this "hello"?

I would be giving a five star review to this whole show… But I am giving a two star review for episodes hosted by Jo Beck... it's her overly chipper "hello" that is just incongruent with news of the day that typically contains extremely serious information. She sounds like she is saying hello to a bunch of joyful school children. I immediately turn off the podcast when I hear it. I'm sorry to be so blunt but that's my truth.
