  • Great but change narration!

    Love the idea of this and great articles but one particular narrator (she read the Met Gala article) is unbelievably dramatic and totally over the top that I found it cringeworthy to listen to. She would express such extreme anger when the tone of the article didn’t seem to convey that much emotion. Really puts me off listening which is a shame.
