Hissing is for snakes!
While I am enjoying this podcast about Hollywood in its heyday, with its baggage of good and very awful qualities, I bemoan the distracting vocal tics of Ms. Longworth. While she’s tamed the exaggerated enunciation of her prior podcast, she still can’t seem to let go off her hissing ‘s’ and the forceful ‘t’ of her tic lexicon. I say this in kindness, but I wish someone would tell her to speak naturally. The audience will hear these poor letters and they don’t need any lingering or attack. The ‘s’ in particular is hissed by the host and we know hissing is for snakes. The topic is fascinating but it’s hard to relax amidst such unnatural speech. Besides the bizarre enunciation and tics, the podcast is ace.
