Crazy, Sr. ,

Drop the NPR production style

The NPR production approach really ruins these. Music and sound effects and long pauses are annoying.

Almost there but no

Full of cheesy sound effects. Content is great but otherwise unbearable.
Will give it another go if they stop trying so hard.

Questionable:

While showcasing problems helps rise fear and anxiety, why not showcase solutions? Also after listening to a show a couple times i realized it is a very well hidden commercial.
