Great podcast

Listen to it every morning on the treadmill, great to catch up on the news.
Bur please make the weekly bit a separate podcst

RespectDifferentViews ,

Annoying voice

Everyone loves the UK accent. Why use this woman with such a horrible nasal voice? The majority the USA will have a hard time listening to your podcast just because of her voice.

Kékcsillag ,

Annoying American voices

I like about 50% of the show in terms of content. However, at the same time , I find having to listen to incredibly annoying hosts with their American voices, their tone and delivery the most irritating.
