Bomber! Sort the audio bro!!! Invest in some compression to bring the quiet talkers more in level with the shouty people. Unless you’re listening in a quiet room, its hard to hear what everyone is saying.
Apart from that, Bomber is doing great work and it’s a great listen.

The audio mixing is often quite poorly done

Might be a microphone thing or something but often volume fluctuates.

“We believe in the patriarchy and will bring it back?” wow.
