David Remnick has a distracting voice?

WABE in Atlanta has the NPRiest NPR voiced host who ever NPR'ed. It could easily be a parody

Listening to this woman stilt through a story about queer culture last week was funny and frustrating at the same time. The lady sounds like she just had a stroke that seriously affected her cadence and it's incredibly distracting to me while I try to listen to her conduct an interview about something I'm interested in. I listened to a few minutes before switching to music on my phone.

She used to just introduce afternoon jazz until we got a second public radio station. Her voice used to be the cue to find something else to listen to but they've now made her try to do real work
