Horrible delivery

I’ve tried this podcasts quite a few times because the content is interesting. Today was my last try, now unsubscribing.

I just can’t get past the HORRIBLE delivery. The fake exuberance, high pitched gleeful voices and the tone as if talking to a 3 year old is just intolerable.

Excellent “Out of the Litterbox” Thinking Show

Although the weekly podcast is very long (2+ hours), it is a complete coverage on various scientific fields. I also appreciate their opinions on the scientific studies or topic, even if I do not agree, since such discussions make me think in 360-degree fashion. Thank you for an interesting and challenging show (in a good way) :)
