Wonderful podcast but have a correction

I live in Roanoke, VA and used to go to Dr. Swank’s office. I’ve always wanted to know more about what happened so am really interested in this story. The podcast is very well done however I have one correction. The health system that Dr. Swank worked for, Carilion, is pronounced “Ka-Rill-yon”. Hope that helps. And thanks for bringing more light to this story!

Great story, but....

The near constant elevator music really detracts from the host’s earnestness, and totally listenable voice, not to mention seriousness of subject matter. Just feels too much. Let the story, interviews, and journalism speak for itself; no need to lay a mundane sleepy/hold music track up under the whole thing. No offense to the musicians, it’s really just a context problem;)
Not a deal breaker though! I just want homeboy to lay off the wahwah synth for his next show, which I will be super stoked for!

Unfortunately I wasn’t able too continue listening due to the music that was completely unnecessary! Tell a story you don’t need music constantly playing.
