Great content but subpar audioquality

I am a big fan of the Jodcast. The content is great, entertaining and informative!
My only issue is the audio quality.

Top podcast

A really good, in depth podcast which is not at all dumbed down. There have answered a couple of my questions on “Ask An Astronomer”.

Warning, however. It is run by students and a couple of times a year it descends into student humour. These episodes are best deleted. (The ‘joke’ one April 1st was that it was the last episode...). Keep up the good work.

Informative Podcast

This is a podcast presented by PhD studentf studying astronomy at Manchester University. The interviews with visiting researchers are often cutting edge and give an insight into very current research. The presenters are able to mix the serious with a good level of banter and humour. The thinking beings podcast!

They cover many aspects of the world of professional astronomy both professional, personal and its place in the wider world.
