I'm very frustrated with how rudly people are reacting. like bro if your tired of it then stop listening! i do have to say this podcats is very nice, i liek the slow speaking with the little clarification here and there. it's a great way to hear the words in sentences and be able to hear what words are being used, due to the slow speech. I love all the true stories that are told by really people. it's fantastic
