Flawed execution

Quillette as a magazine has rapidly grown to have such reach that’s it no surprise they roped in a superstar first interviewee for their podcast(Jordan B Peterson). Alas, there are a few production issues: The robotic delivery of Claire Lehman’s intro, with its irritating electronic musical accompaniment (just me?), to the frankly awful sound quality of Peterson’s end of the audio. Toby Young is a smart guy but I think he could probably benefit from learning from successful long form interviewers on other podcasts and taking a less strident, urgent tone: It’s a podcast, just let the conversation flow.....

Low audio

Audio level is too low. I’m looking forward to the content though
