Please edit traumatic show clip!

Please edit show clip as advertised on other C13 podcast(s) over and over again!
Can you please remove the trauma-piercing clips from your show’s promotional audio that is being advertised on other podcasts here?! It begins with details from 9/11! I send this request because I am living my best life by listening to another podcast and all of the sudden I am blindsided by details of 9/11, repeatedly. Please stop it from being thrown around unsolicited. Please, if you must include clips of “Reflections of History” to advertise your show, I ask that you choose those that do not involve the traumatic parts. Thank you in advance for taking this seriously.
