Needs some fine tuning

From such a venerable American institution such as Harper’s. I would hope for snd expect the very best both in content as well as format and presentation. Given the pods with which this will compete(New Yorker, NYT, the Economist to name a few).
Sadly, because almost certainly she is capable but absolutely untrained, the limitations of the host were mainly what turned me off. Casual but particularly unenthusiastic style and the regular(fingernails on chalkboard here)vocal fry. (If you don’t know what it is, look it up). Standards to which the host could aspire include Mary Harris of Slate’s What Next or Martine Powers of Post Reports. She should consider some voice coaching as well as some Transom workshops. No reason she can’t do it but it’s more and more competitive out there.
