Need new narrator -otherwise great

by PublicMediaFan1 on Nov 27, 2018
Rating: ★★★★☆

Excellent podcast with world class reporting (as FRONTLINE is know for) however, the opening narration by Raney Aronson makes this borderline impossible to listen to. It is worth listening if you can get thru the first 30 seconds of Raney’s monotonous robotic tones. You can hear how bored she is in the way she introduces the stories. Just awful. She should stick to producing TV and let someone with a more charismatic voice introduce the stories. She has the charisma of mark zuckerburg and a terminator t-800 mixed together —blah bland and robotic. Get someone to narrate who is genuinely interested in the topics and makes you excited to listen. Looking forward to new season and stories so long as they replace raney with someone with a better voice. Would be 5 stars if it had a better opening narrator.

Exceeded my expectations--and they were high!

The first season of this podcast was phenomenal. The range, the quality, the depth of the reporting were all so impressive, but even more was the fact that the podcast introduced me to issues like child marriage in the US, and juveniles put away for life, that I was hardly aware. KUDOS, and greatly looking forward to the second season!

High quality journalism

Now more than ever, we need this type of proper, professional, objective journalistic coverage!

Great balance to this piece. Acknowledging the reality of the perspective of both sides of the issue grants me the space to understand the complexity of the issue and truly engage in a more tolerant way as a voter to find and support a true solution.

No thanks

While I enjoy listening to the Frontline from tv formatted for the podcast, this actual podcast was a big disappointment. The young journalist that is narrating the show sounds like a 12 year old, and I find it difficult to listening to riveting subject matter when the host makes statements in the form of questions, and gravel talks their way through serious subject matter. Maybe when she grows up, or they get a new host, then the show might be worthwhile.

As if Frontline wasn’t already the best!

Just got listening to the living with a murder episode, wow!!! This is journalism at its finest!!! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, thank you so much for the content. Man, the time and dedication that it takes for these stories is ridiculous and very much appreciated!!!

Content interesting

But why does the narrator speak in a baby-ish voice? It's distracting and hard to listen to because of it. Baby talking is demeaning to intelligence. I used to do this when I was younger and trying to fit into this pretty-cute mold I thought was expected of me in American culture. When I hear women talking in this voice it's distracting from the content.

Excellent journalism

I have always loved the television Frontline series. So thankful to now have an audio series for my commute. My only complaint: wish they had a new one everyday!

Wow I'm just blown away!

Investigative and thoughtful journalism has gone by the wayside these days, but podcasts like these give me hope. I look forward to hearing more episodes.

I'm a big Frontline fan on PBS so obviously I would like this podcast. That being said the production value and news depth of what is presented in each episode is really at the highest quality you can imagine. The depth of the stories that they go into in the 45 minutes to an hour of each episode are really compelling and something you will really enjoy listening to.

Compelling story telling

The first episode posted, about child marriage in America, was incredibly well done. Interesting characters and a detailed look into something I had no idea about prior to listening. It is an example of some of the finest story telling available on podcasts right now and I cannot wait for the next episode to drop!
