Stop Bleeping. Please stop bleeping interviews

Look... this is an AMAZING podcast! But you’ve GOT to stop bleeping the swear words. They completely lose intelligibility.

I just heard the interviewer compliment Akiva Goldsman, and I have NO IDEA what they’re talking about now, because I have no idea what she said. All he replied was, “thanks.”

You’ve got to leave some context, but your heavy handed bleeping is making the people speaking impossible to understand at times. And it was your HOST you bleeped. Come on!!! Get this together.

At minimum... bleep like the rest of the world... allow us to understand the swear word without actually hearing it. Please do a better job with the bleeps, if they must stay.
