Seriously....

Love the stories! Cannot abide the editor’s cringeworthy voice! 🙉 Surely someone, ANYONE, else can read the intro! 😬

Editor is not the best narrator

I’ve read EQ magazine since I was in high school so I welcome the podcasts. But the editor doesn’t need to be the narrator. Plus some of the others who read the stories need to be replaced. Sigh but stories need to be read by professionals not just someone multitasking
