Science with Russians and Germans

A fun show to listen to, with topics ranging from the success of dinosaur porn, to various uses for urine.

Audio is terrible quality

Hi guys, I can’t listen to ur podcast since you are recording remotely (since Corona). The audio quality is terrible. Other podcasts seem to have made the switch without any change to the quality. It sounds like one of you is on the phone and it’s hard to hear properly.
