Love!!

Really enjoy this podcast. I love the narrator’s voice and the way he reads the stories.

SOOOOO MANY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS!!!

First of all, whomever read the 2nd & 4th story in #79 - PLEASE NEVER LET THEM READ AGAIN!!!! They were HORRIBLE!!! It’s hard to understand what they are even saying - & it has nothing to do with him being British - it’s the cadence that he reads it with. It’s like a terrible off-key tune. Or like scratching nails on a chalkboard. I canNOT stress enough how very HORRIBLE THEY WERE!!! Also, maybe it’s just me, but ….. Michael ….. I think that if you are going to be a podcaster, you should learn how to speak / read properly. There are SO MANY grammatical errors throughout, that I cannot list them all. {There are several in just about EVERY story.} But … here are a few that are truly annoying: Mispronouncing of words {paste-ure instead of pasture, celine instead of saline, etc} / Putting extra es/ed sounds at the end of plural words, ie: lists-es, guests-es, liked-ed, told-ed, etc. For goodness’ sake - GUESTSES IS NOT! A!! WORD, SWEETIE!!!!! / Re-reading the same line twice, & not even realizing it. / Your reading cadence is off - for example, you pause in weird places. Lol it almost sounds like Captain Kirk talked on Star Trek sometimes. I'm sorry, & I'm not trying to be mean, but if you are an adult, & if English is your first language, then you should know better than to still speak this way - ESPECIALLY if you are going to do it publicly. Honestly, it's not hard to speak properly. It is embarrassing to us & you know exactly what I mean. Most of the stories are interesting & some are even scary; but the mispronunciation & grammatical errors ruin it sometimes. PS I can’t even consider contributing to your Patreon until you read without the grammatical mistakes & mispronunciations.
