Stop saying "Mmhmm"...

By CyclingJames - Feb 03 2016
Read more
I like this podcast and what it has the potential to become. But the woman doing the interview keeps saying "Mmhmm" as she is "listening" - and its driving me nuts! Makes the content hard to follow. Soooo "listen" a little more quietly and maybe I can finish more than 3 minutes of one of these podcasts.

Good info
