Stop chopping up the sound

Would love to hear from these wonderful and interesting people but all this chop and repeat nonsense is awful!
It's distracting and ultimately makes it impossible to listen to it.
I have unsubscribed!


If this is tomorrow’s world then a time machine wouldn’t go amiss to help listeners return to a time that doesn’t have presenters with faux valley girl friendship dynamics and vocal fry. The original TV show was one of the BBC’s gems but this misses the mark. The content is great and if you can look past the previous issues, you’ll find a show with promise.

Try-hard imitation of Radiolab

This show imitates Radiolab without understanding what makes that show great.

Its sound design is slightly whizzy, but for no reason – it doesn’t contribute to the storytelling as Radiolab’s does.

And the first episode, at least, buries the lede – what’s the reason to listen? Oh, 26 mins in, it’s about the possibility of AI.

It’s co-hosted, but misses the whole point of why that works on Radiolab – Jad and Robert have a genuine friendship and play off each other as the head and the heart might.

And it fails to tell a story, although I’m sure somewhere in these topics there are fascinating tales to tell.

The BBC is facing stiff competition from US podcasts. It needs to understand why those shows work and adapt that for a British audience, rather than simply rip them off.
