Thanks for this

Interesting and informative for Adventists. Like me. The sound recording quality could be a little better. I understand that this is a non profit organization and the budget may be limited for better recording sound quality, but it would be great if the sound quality could be better

---------------
A few months later : I've lowered this review to 3 stars. I sill listen due to some of the good content but the sounds quality is awful. Please take a cue from other Adventist podcasts such as AFM, Adventist history podcast, Spectrum etc which have sound quality hat is much better and I'm sure tenor budget is smaller or home made. Please tighten up the audio quality on the IWM program.
