Why is this guy SHOUTING all the time? Is he worried we wouldn't listen if he just spoke in a normal voice? After 7 minutes I couldn't take it though I found the subject matter engaging. And yes, not being able to pause the lectures in iTunes is a pain.

Stammering and shouting

David Wetzel stammers and shouts, at times repeating himself three times before continuing. It wasn't clear whether this was for dramatic effect or if it was in fact a speech impediment, but it is very unnerving. The way he sometimes says three different things in the course of his shouting stammer also gave the impression that he wasn't so sure. Surprisingly, the good thing about his repetition of dates was that it prepares one well for simple forms of standardized testing-- yey, public education!

Great content, grating delivery

Wetzel's courses are always fascinating - well structured, densely packed and informative - and this is no exception. The problem is that it's undermined by his bellowing, sing-song, fumbling, stuttering, repetitive delivery. Repetitive delivery. Delivery. Repetitive delivery.

I cringe at the speaker almost as often as I look forward to the content, but so far the content has kept me listening. Recommended with caveats.
