Narrator was frustrating
Episodes were full of fluff to kill time on mostly 15 mins of episodes. One of the introductions was 3.05 minutes.
Th narrator tries way too hard to create suspense and keeps reiterating the same lines. When she interviews people she has one way of speaking and when she’s narrating she adapts this Channel 4 presenter voice.
This podcast could have been much better if the researcher had dug a bit deeper.
Interesting story but I felt the narration made it cheesier than it was. The voice - is why I had to stop listening
