caredenuftoreview ,

Great! Voice is annoying

Please stop with the trembling soft voice acting. It’s so cringe.

Mama2Charlotte ,

Please stop.

If you’re reading a word for word story a victim went through, please don’t do any voice acting. Just quote them. Stop the fake crying and the voice trembling. It’s embarrassing and cringy.

notnotlando ,

Solid storytelling

The host has a very soothing voice and the stories are well-researched and written. Keep it up!
