Informative show

Interesting discussion with a lot of guests from Australian Bitcoin space.

Seeking original ,

Audio quality

I am new to this podcast and while the content is interesting, the audio quality is terrible. It sounds like the hosts are talking on hands free mobile phones in their cars!
Please guys get some decent mics and recording software. It will help us hear and understand your conversations so much more.
