Good info

Thanks for taking the time to make the podcast enabling various enterprises to share their insights and experiences.

Bogey beat ,

Bad audio

Seems to be a lot of corrupted audio and people speaking without a microphone etc mainly in the GameStop episode. Long pauses and weird background noise.
