Great content, mediocre sound quality
I love the content of this show. I’ve been using ADDitude Magazine as a resource for decades. I just wish they’d put more into the audio quality. My main time for listening is in a commute in my old car and I can’t always make out what they’re saying and the volume level between the hostess and the guests varies greatly within the episodes.
How can I watch it live?
Fix the sound
I want to listen to this so badly because it genuinely sounds like it has great and helpful content.. but I have never made it longer than 3 minutes due to the lip smacking after every sentence. It makes my skin crawl. I understand it’s how she talks but it makes it impossible to listen to. There has to be a way to adjust the mic or the sound system so we don’t hear that!!
