"normal" people"... as well-intentioned as this comment may have been, normalcy is a concept full of assumptions, more so when thinking creating a space such as Libre is even possible for the "average Joe".

Really like Atlas Obscura. Enjoy most episodes. What I don't like is Yohana Mayer narration. The text is good but the drop voice and rappyness at the end of every sentence. When she speaks with someone during an interview , her voice is pleasing and without the rasp and fall off. I will continue listening but not her broadcasts.
