Go back to the original style of the podcast

I thought it was just me but after reading the reviews it seems I’m not alone in dislike of the recent format where people are reading their essays….and reading them in a robot monotone.
ATK usually does everything in a top notch way so the quality of this podcast is surprising.
Sometimes I can get past the monotone if the content is interesting, but sometimes I just turn it off.
I used to love listening when it first started with Bridget doing the narrative. Would love if Kevin could take this up again.
