Love the show but Martina’s voice is almost unbearable!

I wish the presenter would stop trying so hard to sound like what she’s saying is not scripted when her terrible acting skills prove otherwise. Just freestyle and keep it real. You’re not an actress. When I hear the Abraham Zalunga I fast forward or switch to another podcast. But the content of the show gets 5 stars otherwise.
