Chelsea Spear - Podcast Review - Jun 30, 2021
"The high-quality recording and production values are consistent with other podcasts released by the Double Elvis network. Ursin’s surf-y, reverb-heavy theme plays throughout the episode, punctuating key moments in her subjects’ stories and fading in and out at different narrative breaks. Ursin’s use of more standard sound effects, like a keyboard typing or crumpling paper and throwing it in a trashcan, add levity to her introductions and outros."
