Good content, poor sound
The Sydney Institute has an excellent format and content. It should really step-up, however, with respect to its sound quality. Each episode in my experience has detracting background noise, e.g. shuffling papers or for the recent Ten Unknown Australians episode, is sounded as if someone was continuously tapping the microphone. A little better production values would render the product far more palatable. Otherwise, please keep up the good work.
E&P Impact of COVID19
Apart from an informative section minutes 11-19 the rest was very “lightweight”. Also extended periods of waiting for next session that were not edited out. Could also do without the pink = gay comment
