Interesting video, decent naration, plausable explanation.

Then Skank Of America could start in...

Decent narration?

Bollocks.

Rest of it? Couldn't sit through it due to the bush league narration.

Weird, and painful to listen to. (All his sentences have the exactly same rhythm.)

Asking naively: has he a regional accent?

My immediate impression was that the narration was computer generated. There are plenty of tells. It was better than some I've heard, but still annoying.

When Skeeve said the narration was decent, I assumed he was referring to the content, not the way the words were spoken.

I managed to get all the way to the end. It should have been edited to half the length. Too much filler, both in narration and video.

Nonetheless, I found it useful for the new information I now have about the topic.

Didn't occur to me it might be confuser generated, but you may be right.

When someone says 'good narration' I immediately think of George Page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Pa ... presenter)

He made it sound so fucking easy.
