Host is annoying
The show is interesting. The introductory drooling about his personal life of the host is so annoying as to make this podcast un-listenable. I don’t care about his GodZilla wife or annoying children. Just play the stories and talk ‘a lot’ less. A lot, lot less. And I especially don’t care about your political views.
Favorite Narrator Award
BJ Harrison is my favorite audiobook narrator. Best voices, accents, and thoughtful, powerful performances. Love the classic novels I am finally able to talk about having now actually read [listened to] them in their entirety — because of this podcast. Titles I’ve enjoyed the most include The Great Gatsby, Bambi, The Importance of Being Earnest, & more!
I have also purchased a number of audiobooks by BJ Harrison because he’s just that spectacular! Favorite purchases include Treasure Island and Anthem.
