This is a wonderful podcast - Wisdom

This podcast consists of interviews with fascinating people in the vanguard of Western Buddhism. Teachers, seekers, writers share their path, giving a compelling glimpse into how Buddhism is taking root in the West. I always look forward to any new podcast from them.

Unfortunately there are some important production problems. In particular, the interviewer has a very soft voice and the sound levels are not the same as the interviewee. Some more attention to post-production would be beneficial here:)
Sometimes they are a bit long, and careful editing might be considered too…

Still, a great addition to my week!
