Great content

The content and context of the episodes are always good. I’m enjoying the development of the show. Mr. Bower has a wonderful voice that is getting better each episode.
The Dan Welsh episode was hilarious, the humor helps with understanding the weight of the issues.

Individuator

This could be a really good podcast considering the scope of the content and the spot on questions being asked by the interviewer. However, the quality of the sound will make it unlistenable to most people and I think it takes a whole lot of patience to get through the TERRIBLE audio quality of this podcast. The interviewer’s voice cuts out when he asks questions and there is noise on his microphone to distract the audience.
We want to listen, but you have to make the conditions comfortable for the listener to absorb your content.
