Customer Reviews

Great content, but is way too puffy

After hearing this podcast heavily promoted on other npr podcasts that i enjoy, i was expecting something quite high calibre. And to some degree, it does achieve this - production values are great and the stories are well researched. But unfortunately, the way these stories are told is frustrating, overemphasising build up, featuring repetition, heavy narration and just is unable to present the story concisely. I really got an impression that the stories featured shouldn't take an hour to tell, and would have to take breaks from listening because i got bored. Hopefully this improves in future episodes.

"Creaky Voice" is very distracting

I really wanted to love this podcast - I have a huge soft spot for NPR podcasts but I couldn't even get through 15 minutes of the first ep. The intense vocal fry that is going on from about the 6 minute mark onwards is so distracting to the point of annoying. It's like an epidemic now amongst young women and it's really grating once you notice it. Such a shame. I won't write it off completely because I hope the girls got some feedback and made a more conscious effort to lose the gravel. Apologies for the criticism, I'd rather compliment than criticise, but when your voices are the central means of communication on a podcast, it's so important to get it right.

Unique, fascinating & by women!

Such interesting stories covered in unique ways with a high quality production. I had to get used to the accent because for an Aussie it's quite noticeable at first. This only took about one eipsode though, and now I love the 'vocal fry' everyone complains about these days. Keep representing, your works great!
