Nice short blurb

Hits some interesting numbers in under 5 min. The only suggestion is for the woman to work on eliminating the vocal fry.

I cannot stand Jacob’s voice

Interesting idea for a podcast, but I cannot tolerate the dudes voice. The way he talks makes it seem like a high school history project. Get someone else with a better voice to read the script and I’ll listen.

Female voice

I enjoy and appreciate 'Numbers by B' But don't know how long I will be able to take that cracking trailing voice of the female currently giving them. Kind of like an annoying commercial you get to really dread hearing and try to avoid - it may drive me away. Pleasant voice otherwise and I would give a higher rating if she can resolve that.
