Can’t stop listening!

This podcast was recommended on another podcast I listen to and I haven’t been able to listen to anything else since I started this one!

Her voice is SO annoying

The stories are good but the way she says certain words are insanely irritating. Her voice is just so nasally and I can’t stand it

Bad acting

I used to love listening to this podcast until they added the people who are supposedly the actors. The voices are annoying so I have to skip parts to get to the narrator. I like her a lot. Please don’t play out scenes anymore. It was better before.
