Great content, poor sound

Great content but poor sound. It's very echoey. I'm sure management can sign off on some decent microphones! Keep 'em coming though!

Poor sound quality

The content isn’t bad but the production is at best amateurs. The last podcast lasted two minutes before I had to give up due to the echo. Sounded like a school production. Sorry.

Strange that journalists so interested in high tech seem clueless about creating good audio quality

Listening to this is an altogether odd experience. It's often so echoey and off-mike that what might be valuable reporting and insight gets lost in the muffled and distorted recording.

A half-hearted production at best, it shows ‘Aviation Week’ in a very poor light. There are knitting podcasts that deliver better quality audio. And it wouldn’t take much to improve it. Investing a couple of hundred bucks in equipment and putting some effort into producing the show at a higher standard could transform this disappointing podcast.
