Sound recording has issues

Really want to enjoy it but the choice to record on location means there is often very distracting background sound. I couldn’t finish the lighthouse episode even though the content was interesting.

Needs Tweaking

This new history podcast, which oddly shares the same title music as Dan Snow's History Hit (a program on which Helen has worked in the past), needs some work. The sound recording can be uneven, and alas the guest is often allowed to lecture. The material may be interesting but the presentation can be dull, with the host missing in action. Hoping they can fine tune this program to make it more immediate, interesting, and to incorporate superior production values.
