WHY would you need THREE different people to present these stories? 5 min in the first story, I’m interested in the story line, but all I can now hear is the female saying “sure, sure,” and the deeper voiced guy saying “uh huh” or “mmhm” after pretty much EVERY sentence the narrator speaks. It’s like nails on a chalkboard.
