    Lights, Camera, Moon Landing!

    When Neil Armstrong touched down and said “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” he meant it, right? The 1969 moon landing was a long-awaited event that brought the world together and the United States across the Space Race finish line. But, as with any historic victory for powerful people in powerful governments, doubters soon followed. To this day, many still believe the Apollo 11 mission was a Hollywood hoax.

    A Decade of Terror: Village of the Damned Part 1

    A Decade of Terror: Village of the Damned Part 1

    Dryden, New York is your typical, small town nestled among forestry, ponds and plains. But in the 1990s, that peace was disrupted by a string of events so tragic it was hard not to suspect a site-specific curse. Dryden would come to be known for a time as the “Village of the Damned,” and in Part 1 of this series we’ll trace the first half of this ominous decade there.

Good stories; too much judgement

After listening to the two-part story about Dryden, I was impressed with the story-telling. However, E. Jean Carroll has an impressive record as a journalist and Daisy needs to look into Carroll’s work and legacy before judging her writing. Yes, some of the language in The Cheerleaders is outdated, but the work as a whole is an excellent and well-regarded piece of journalism.

Interesting content, one major annoyance…

I find the topics she covers quite interesting and I actually don’t mind Daisy’s voice or personality. Sure she can be a little overly sarcastic, but I can overlook that.

The one thing about this podcast that drives me nuts is the voice actors who read the quotes from people. They are such terrible voice actors. Way too overwrought and the accents they do are HORRENDOUS. It’s totally unnecessary- why not just have Daisy read the quote?

I’ve tried so many times!

Every few weeks I’ve tried to go this podcast a go again, but the host is insufferable. Just tell the actual story! The annoying commentary is not necessary and you are not funny. I feel like you’re trying to push this fake like persona on listeners, when all we want to do is hear about an interesting topic. Someone, for the love of god, be honest with the host. The problem with the podcast is her style, and incessant need to attempt to be witty.
