New “3D Audio” sound effects are awful!

Great podcast and engaging hosts. However, awful sound design lately. iheartradio added sound effects they call “3D Audio”. It’s not a soundscape but random interjections that pop in periodically and drown out the hosts. The effect is cliche and amateur. Absolutely hate it. Poor Holly and Tracy. They deserve much better sound production.

TOO MANY ADS

I got throught a few episodes. The "episode" part was not too bad, but there seemed to be more ads than content. I Unsuscribed.

The amazing ninjumper ,

Too many ads

Only made it a couple episodes in and there’s way too many ads for such short episodes
Also you’re a history podcast yet you still refer to indigenous people as “Indians” ??
