First, I’ll start by saying that I’ve been listening to this podcast since the beginning and the stories are great. They’re well researched and they’re not always the more well-known stories that most podcasts seem to regurgitate. Lanie’s voice was what drew me to continue listening. However.....
She has volume issues with either her equipment or she just speaks too quietly and no amount of reviews will clue her in. It appears that she doesn’t read the reviews. Second, she’s no actress, which is fine, but it’s clear that her delivery is monotone and she’s reading from notes. Some podcasters are great at concealing the fact that they’re reading (Tyler from The Minds of Madness for example), but Lanie is not.
The quality of this podcast has suffered greatly since she began her second podcast. She’s inconsistent about episode releases and her tag line at the end of each episode is atrocious. Also she or whomever edits is not very good at the job. Almost every episode has a goof where a line will be read and the same line will be repeated.
Finally, if you don’t have the money to start a podcast, don’t start one. It is in poor taste and discrediting when at the end of each episode you ask for money via Patreon. And to further insult the listener, you try and entice us to support you by giving away stickers. I don’t want stickers, I want better sound engineering and editing. It isn’t your fault though Lanie, a lot of podcasts are asking for money, you just happen to follow the crowd.
