Great Podcast

One of my favourite podcasts. I learn so much from Matt and his guests in each episode.

Poor/distracting sound quality

The content of this podcast is great but the poor sound quality & often very scripted questions (which come across as ridged & staid) is really very distracting & off putting - maybe I’m too sensitive 😅 I want to listen to this podcast but the sound is so unpleasant
