Simply simple

For simpletons

Great Beginning

The host present their material in an open, natural voice. It’s both fun and informative.
Can’t wait to see how this develops.

Amateurish - Read a book instead

Amateurish and Incredulous hosting. Multivocal narration in the style of those ads with people completing each other’s sentences. All set to an irritating beat.
