Wow. not good, here's why....

I listen to almost every writing podcast and i don't want to be the troll but this is terrible. let me quantify. first the titles are good "how to breathe life into your characters" so i download and the host is shouting, or trying to speculate on life in a philosophical way but out of all the ranting (yes lots of ranting) we barely get much information on the topic.
The way the podcast is presented is nice, a good image and looking professional. i'm afraid it is not.
The host shouts, rants and goes off topic for a long time before apologising, getting back on track and then off into spectulation again.
I tried numerous times to give it a try and like another reviewer said, love him or hate him.
My final say is an example. listen to podcast number 029 "one-eyed staring contest" fast forwards to TEN MINUTES and listen to the utter drivel that comes out, hurt my ears, i don't need that attitude in my head while im having a pleasant day at work. Judge for yourself.
but it is just an opinion and each to their own.

Even with the volume at its lowest..

The podcast is horrible, shouty, and ruining all kinds of audio levels.
