Informative & Brief

An informative podcast with valuable content. My one critique is the voice of the “host,” the high pitch and the consistent uptick in the intonation at the end of every sentence is distracting. Additionally, when “interviews” are recorded it is clear conversations are pieced together to give the image of an interview, but it’s sounds just sown together. See also FT daily briefing for a model. The pitch of the host matters.
