Jesus. Maria Christina is so hard to follow along with, she speaks way too slowly and laboriously. It sounds like she needs to think of every.single.word before she says it. Sweet girl, but definitely not podcast material-she loses me before she even starts. If she must stay on as an occasional cohost, she should really think about writing down what she wants to say BEFORE speaking about a book.
