I actually prefer it the way it is. Some podcasters out there are quite good but mumble a whole lot, so I have to pay really close attention to what they're saying and even have to rewind at times. English is not my first language and Ms. Longworth speaking at a slow pace (well, not slow, but you see what I mean) makes understanding the podcast a lot easier for me. So I guess it's a case of "it'll work for some, and not for others".
Karina's voice and reading was one of the major hooks that kept me in. I guess it's subjective, but my advice to Karina would be, "Keep up the great work!!"
I love the voice
Me too. Dig the voice.
Karina has a wonderful voice. Easy to understand and very clear. It is one of the many reasons that this is my favourite ever podcast.
I love her voice- I often turn this podcast on as background noise, just because I find her so soothing. She does overpronunciate, but I find it charming.
One minor, minor note for a wonderful presentation of very interesting content is to pronounce the "t' in the middle of words, such as important. If you listen to her say "Dolly Parton" carefully, she actually says Pardon. It's just something that catches my ear and is a pet peeve. I wish my shortcomings were so insignificant.
