  1. Hi Jacke, thanks for all the great content. I’ve been listening for a month now (all the eps) but had a comment about the last 2 episodes. You seem to have merged the two podcasts that run in the History of Literature channel, which I think is nice overall. I have to say though that I really don’t like the short audios that play midway the episode. Your voice is very soothing and I always feel very immersed when listening to you talk about anything really, and I find the audios from your producer very distracting. No offense intended (and maybe he can interact more directly with you, like making comments instead), but I just think that it ruins the immersion when you’re talking about literature (which hasn’t been directly the case in the last 2 eps, granted). So maybe you’ll consider keeping them on the unfrequent side when you go back to the classics? Or maybe that was already your intention. Anyway, I just thought I’d give the feedback since you always ask for it. Of course I know you have your own artistic view of how to make your podcasts, but that’s my own opinion I guess. I really really enjoy the content and I always look forward to the next ep. Cheers from the UK


    1. Thanks, Gabi – I’m glad to have you as a listener and definitely appreciate the feedback! I’m going to take it as a compliment that the sound of my uninterrupted voice did not put you to sleep, although now that I think about it, I guess some people might look forward to using the podcast that way, too. In either case, the producer’s interjections would be unwelcome. We’ll keep refining the show to see what we can do to make it better. Thanks again for the feedback, and I hope you continue to enjoy the show!


      1. Hi Jacke, thanks for replying. I really hope I didn’t offend anyone’s feeling by saying this. I had been debating whether to comment or not, but thought that maybe other listeners felt the same so it would be a useful comment.

        Yes I really enjoy your uninterrupted voice haha. Listening to your podcast makes me feel like I’m reading literature, where the language/tone just draws you in until you’re so immersed that nothing else really matters. Looking forward to the next episodes, thanks for all the hours of enjoyment.


      2. No offense taken, I assure you. I’m glad to hear the feedback. It’s so positive! I myself look for “good company” when choosing a podcast, so I’m glad to hear I’m providing that to at least one listener. 🙂 Thanks for taking the time and I hope you keep listening!
