  • Narration to avoid

    Interesting content for the most part but alas an annoying stilted narrator.

  • Awful orator

    Is this orated by an AI bot? It’s hard to listen to and doesn’t flow nicely.

  • Disappointing

    The voice and also the pace of reading I agree is off putting. People will choose to listen because they are interested in the subject matter and form - reading an essay rather than a discussion or Q&A. It’s as if the reader - because of this choice of form - feels it necessary to make it all more exciting sounding. What it actually does is make it trickier to follow what is going on.
