Audio feedback hurts but concept is great

I really enjoy the concept and cast of this podcast, however the constant clicking, popping and other mic feedback really hurts the ears. I wish the production would edit those noises out.

Sign Me Up For A Tour With The Alarmy!

I love this podcast. It is entertaining, it is educational, and it is interactive! Please don't listen with your knickers ready to bunch if you are a perschnicity history perfectionist. These are comedians doing a history podcast. Come for the entertainment. Leave having learned something! Keep up the great work!
(ps I had to figure out how to log into my Apple ID on my Mac to leave this review. but I couldn't continue to hurt Amanda's heart anymore by not rating and reviewing.)
