Excellent content, mediocre sound quality.

Excellent podcast about game design and storytelling with great topics and topical discussions. Unfortunately the sound quality is not very clear, or its recorded in an echo-y room, can't tell. I listen to podcasts in my car, which means that some episodes I can't even discern what is being said. Fix the audio and this is a five-star podcast hands down.
