Unique stories, great POV/voice

I’ve been listening to LMGT for years. I love the bite sized, strange topics. Abby’s narrative structure is entertaining, informed, and accessible.

Interesting and well written

The host has a way with words and each episode is usually interesting. There’s variety too. I’m a weird stories junkie and it’s hard to find stories I’ve never heard of before but I can do this with this podcast. I like it that the host, Abby, refrains from giggling, silliness, inane laughter and juvenile remarks. It would be better if she refrained from using the word ‘like’ so much. Each episode is short so I listen to two or three at a time. Some episodes need much more content. I’d like more details about the story. I’d like a more in depth report. Apparently, from what the first episode, says ; there were previous episodes left out of this edition. Abby says she will be reposting them. I’ll be waiting to hear them. One thing I wish Abby would change is the theme music “Let Me Google That.” There is no way to half a rating but if I could I’d rate this podcast 4 1/2 stars.

UPDATE
The episodes now have more details and the reports are more in depth. I especially enjoyed the first episode about the Titanic. Some details provided were new to me. The audio and music of this podcast have greatly improved and the music no longer interferes with the narration. The theme song has also grown on me.

Terrible

Please stop swallowing and letting us hear it on the mic. Deleted. Not a great podcast.
