Well researched/written, presentation could improve

Generally, I like this podcast! The host’s genuine interest in each topic definitely shows, each disaster is very thoroughly researched, and the scripts are well-structured and respectful of the victims involved.

The audio quality can vary though, and the narration is not super polished, with pretty frequent stumbles. A bit more work could be put into correct pronunciation of names/places, especially when covering disasters in areas outside of the US/UK/Canada.

Want to like.

If you would edit some of the ummm and “I wrote that wrong” I’d listen.

With polishing, this could be good.

I am interested in the topics, but I feel like I’m being read to from a high school book report. She reports like an enlightened teenager.

I also don’t care for her lack of interest in pronouncing foreign words correctly. She mangles just about every language with a chuckle. A bit more research and practice would help that.

Tangential sidebar talk about politics and her personal problems are irritating.

But the worst is Jennifer’s voice. She has a dry, sticky mouth. It doesn’t matter how good or bad her variable recording quality is. You can almost feel the spittle.
