  • painful to listen to his voice

    Jeez this guy's voice is just painful to listen to, as gravelly as a sandbar in the Snake River. I had to pop a lozenge to soothe my own throat because this guys voice/throat is SO BAD!

If you’d like proof that basically anyone can have a podcast, this is the show for you.
