Customer Reviews

This Is Why

Please Please cut out the music. In general the podcast would be great but I can’t get past the horrible background music. Too Much!!!!

Get rid of the background noise!!

I think these apps would be very interesting but that constant noise/“music” in the background drove me nuts

It’s a real shame. I tried the cheating pharmacists. And one other. I just couldn’t concentrate on what they were saying with that racket playing.

Tried one another one. Same racket. Played it for my husband. He said the same.

Guess I will keep it to see if it’s in every podcast. If it is I will delete the whole thing.


When the ads come on, it’s way too loud
