Please have more British readers and a more natural tone!
I love the article choices and the long form reading format. Several have been well read by British speakers with natural intonation. Particularly the episodes on the Zaghari-Ratcliffes unjust suffering and the Dirk Obbink’s corrupt sales of Oxford antiquities were impeccably researched and delivered. However, the last one I tried to listen to (America Squandered Its Cold War Victory) sounded like a computerized voice. I had to turn it off after a minute, even though I would love to hear about this topic. Same goes for the Mari Kondo episode. And as an American, I agree with the last reviewer: I listen to British podcasts because I am sick of the whiny and saccharine American accent. Please have more British or international readers!! That’s why we’re here!
