You need to lose the music. The reader is hard to hear. Almost all audio books do not have background noise of any kind. The same with Pindrop podcast. The story & excellent reading should be enough to capture listeners. Music or other noise gets in the way; I'm straining to hear & not taken into the world of the characters. I would have liked this podcast, but I have to unsubscribe. Let me know if you make the change.

I'm so glad podcast like these exist. Thank you. I am a firm believer that music should be listened to while reading. This was an amazing story. But accompanying it with music... genius! Great work by the author. And great work by the artist.
