Sound Quality

I looked forward to hearing the content of this episode, given recent events and the descriptions given, but all I got was digital noise and garbage. Please reload this episode....surely the amount of money I pay for a subscription to The Athletic can pay for a better microphone and a host who doesn’t eat chips during the podcast...
