Audio quality has been bad recently

Generally I like Ethan’s podcast, and his guests Gary and Adam always give a quality perspective, but recently the podcast quality has been jumpy and a bit difficult to listen to.

Getting worse

Only listenable when guests are on. Seems to be getting worse, especially how many names he mispronounces.
