Implausible: the ever-gloomy presenter sounding cheery and enthusiastic about whatever trash product he is advertising. Return to the cataleptic speech mode, the only one in which you are believable.

Who keeps letting violent sexual offenders out early on parole? also, an 18 month sentence? then a 5 year sentence when he violated his parole and attempted to rape another person? Ridiculous.

So I tried to go back to listen to the actual case file and now it's just an ad for the other podcast. Is this going to keep happening? should I actively start archiving this show so I can revisit old episodes before they're turned into an ad for a related but separate podcast?
