Distracting Speech Impediment

It appears that Lillian Cunningham struggles with the differentiation between T when within the middle of a word. Kitten becomes “mi...in” and kitten becomes “ki...in.” Britain becomes “Bri...in.” After a while this distraction overtakes the entire podcast.

Inaccuracies

Did she just really call Andrew Johnson a Republican during the Hayes podcast??? There are several slips like this that should have been caught in editing that make this presentation feel less than professional. Also...what’s the deal with dating the Presidents? What are you...15??
