Tcpfrank ,

Mike’s right. Sequence this feed so we know which is the latest.

Like the information but can be very repetitive.

Julie6498 ,

So monotone, it must be AI generated

Only listened to a single episode . There is zero expression which makes it very difficult to absorb any of the information. My only explanation that is that it must be a script that is read by AI. and if that’s not the case, they need to find somebody else to speak somebody who is authentic and imperfect.

u4toieyhrkth ,

Terrible narration

Like listening to AI reading a novel. No presenter skills. Nor humans? Was very interested in a world news roundup but I just can’t listen to this.
