I’ve learnt so much !
Listening from Australia
Excellent content, rubbish audio quality
This is a fantastic podcyto listen to when you have no background noise whatsoever. If you're listening in a car or any form of transport you are constantly adjusting the volume because the speaker's start each sentence quite loundly then trail off to the point of being inaudible. They then start another sentence at full volume.
Annoying to say the least.
The only reason I gave it a four was because I feel like the episodes could be way longer and they have so much more information to give, 20/30 mins doesn’t do it justice and it kind of feels like it’s just rushed through and we are only getting the summary rather the entire story.
