Meh

I have tried and tried to listen to this show, due to all the hype over it. For a few reasons I just cannot jump on board with this show :( I have no idea why but I cannot keep focus on the story... I keep finding myself realizing I have been listening but not actually hearing anything said.

I prefer dynamic/conversation “story-telling” vs. Someone reading in a Monotone voice... I just want to ask “are you interested in this story?”
I think I could get past the ridiculously boring monotone if the story was interesting, well researched and had terrific sound quality; but, when people close to the story are being interviewed or speaking, the sound quality isn’t great. This makes it very hard to understand what they are saying... especially when interviewing people with extremely thick accents.

Not as good

After listening to the Serial podcast, expectations were high. This podcast was pretty disappointing. The host doesn’t ask or address some issues and details that to me are pretty relevant to the stories. What bothers me most of all is the host’s robotic, monotone voice. She even has the same bland voice when she’s doing the advertising. It actually makes me laugh because who the heck is gonna want to run out and buy some hair dye when she seems underwhelmed to even be advertising it. The host definitely needs to add more personality to her voice. It makes it hard to want to keep hearing the stories. Take a page from Sarah Koenig.

ZzzzZZZzzzzzz

Just started listening to the first episode and couldn’t finish. I don’t know who wrote this, but it’s awful. The content tries to be eloquent, but falls short. The narrator is so monotone she’s putting me to sleep. I can’t listen anymore.
