Fascinating story

Interesting story. Exciting. Storytelling was Needlessly raunchy at times.

Story 👍 Vocal Fry 👎

Curiosity pulled me in since I was a valet at The Gold Club for one Summer. Story was great for me, but the storyteller’s vocal fry made incredibly hard to stomach. If I didn’t have a background to The Gold Club I would have turned off due to the vocal frrrrryyyyy.
