  • Your upbeat tone is relentlessly annoying

    I really wanted to listen to your podcast - but your tone of voice (the lady host, name escapes) is so annoyingly upbeat I couldn’t stand it. Please tone it down because it makes the podcast sound totally scripted, kind of recorded over. I know that’s how West coast/Cali sounds but please tone it down a few notches 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
