Annoying

I rarely leave negative reviews, but I listen to a LOT of podcasts and this one just isn’t good. I will grant I only listened to the secret empire coverage, so maybe other episodes are better. The British (I’m assuming) guy has some good insight but his microphone or whatever is set so low you can barely hear what he’s saying. The other rambles on and on but doesn’t actually SAY anything. It’s just “oh... oh no. I was like, oh this is bad. This is BAD. Oh Lordy. No. Nooooo.” And on and on it goes. By the time the get to anything of substance my Patience has worn out. They just say the same things over and over. We get it, we know how you feel, move onto the next topic please.
