Great content but delivery is painful.

Topics are important and interesting but the delivery of the information was a little irritating. Narrator should stop the uptalk, declaratory sentences shouldn’t sound like questions. Also, sarcasm is rarely ever interesting. All the good points can still be made without sarcastic tone.
