Great Content, delivery needs work

The content is great, but the host speaks in a very unnatural cadence that makes it difficult to listen to. Reminds me of Ira Glass’ discussion of his own poor delivery when he first started broadcasting. A more natural, conversational speaking voice would push this podcast to 5 stars.
