I'm so glad I found this podcast. You brothers are really bright, funny and keep it real.
The sound quality. Really?
Only writing this review because COVID-19 has allowed me the time to sit down and do so.
First of all, I love the show (Brooklyn represent)... Correction, I love the content. But the sound quality! What is going on?
I give the sound quality of the guests a pass (barely) because they’re calling in, but why does the host sound like he’s broadcasting over a land line phone? It’s also doing a terrible disservice to the otherwise brilliant music selections. I can’t appreciate an Afro punk beat when it sounds like it’s coming from an AM radio station.
Not to mention, I’ve kept my mouth shut for almost a year now, because I keep hearing the announcement that you’re moving to a new studio, but dear God when?
At this point I’m thinking it’s time to give up that dream and move on to another platform. Hell, Anchor is free and I bet you’ll get better sound quality if you switch to that.
In an age where new podcasts are popping up every few minutes, the sound of AfroNerd Radio is the only thing keeping me from recommending the show to my friends.
From a peer (40+ yrs old) and genuine fan of the show, please please please fix the sound!
