Finance simplified

Good idea. May hold promise with guests BUT microphone is terrible it sounds like an echo and as though we are listening in on a phone call
Tinny and very irritating not just to sensitive ..
Makes too challenging a nuisance to listen to more than a few minutes
Not a new podcast so it’s surprising ... if you get Princeton guests you get the “studio “ sounding listenable
Content is good
