I like however listening to the voice is challenging

I like the podcast and realize it has to be delivered with a fast pace. Thankfully you’ve slowed down some from the beginning. I teach presentation skills and projection, pause, pace and pitch are crucial for enjoyable listening.The vocal fry is annoying however. I agree with some other comments, always left leaning. I still listen on occasion ‘cause I like the way you promote female empowerment and overall I like you Skimm.

Great news source

I have been hoping for a Skimm podcast for a long time, and I’m so glad it has finally arrived. This podcast is a great way to get a quick download of key news stories while driving to/from work. I love the format and narrator - and this podcast has now become part of my daily weekday routine!

Good news, a bit skewed - annoying voice

Love the news and the background provided for stories. It is a bit skewed to the left. That’s my personal leaning, too, but I still prefer news to be as neutral as possible. And some days, I don’t listen because I really don’t want to hear the voice. I love that the narrator is female, but there are many female speakers out there with good, strong, mellifluous, evenly toned, trained speaking voices. This narrator sounds strident, and the constant vocal fry is annoying to me. That’s just my taste; I’m sure others will disagree. I will still listen, most of the time. Good news podcast overall!
