Valley Girl Narrator

I'm a woman and I don't take women seriously who lilt their voices like this - trying to make their assertions sound like questions - by going higher at the end of the statement. It's a way to sound non-assertive but you just end up not taking them seriously. Women need to just talk with regular voices and stop trying to not sound threatening to men or other women. This narrator sounds like a high school girl when she talks. I just can't take her content seriously so unsubscribing.

This podcast should be removed!!!

Shame on you all!!! And that’s all I will comment because y’all are insensitive as hell! Smh These were the lives of humans who were forced into slavery! F——You!

A tad insensitive

I really wanted to love this but I think the laughter is so disrespectful. There is good content here but laughing at such brutal experiences is offensive to listeners...especially listeners of color.
