Time to end

I’ve been listening to and learning a lot from this show for about 10 years now, but it’s really getting to the point that I just can’t listen anymore. In the last year or so Harry’s voice has really started to crack a lot making it uncomfortable to listen. I thought for a while maybe he’s been sick or had Covid or some kind of, long-term sickness or something, but it seems like it’s a permanent situation and it’s unfortunately just more than I can commit to every week.

Been listening since 1842

Pretty sure Harry was recording Le Show before Au Clair de la Lune recorded his first phonautograph. He keeps an eye on ne’er-do-wells the world over for us, and we’re better off for it.

Besides, beats watching The Olympics.
