Why is the podcast summary used as the episode summary?

Surely someone with the ability to fix this has noticed.

Right?

Otherwise I love this show. Have listened for 15 years.

Good "gateway podcast"

Every once in awhile these guys really nail it, and some of the segments are great. However, doesn't get nearly as deep as a Trap Set, ProtonicReversal, Kreative Kontrol. A fine place to start, as high production values make it easy to listen to (even with annoying sponsor messages) but please dig deeper than Sound Opinions if you are a true music obsessive.

So glad I found SO

Just discovered this podcast and love everything about it. Jim & Greg are excellent. The kind of guys you could talk to for hours on end about great music. Looking forward to hearing some of their older episodes
