Love the content, hate the quality
Great info, cool topics, good interviews, awful audio quality
Unforgivably bad audio quality
That the horrendous audio quality of this podcast has been consistently noted by reviewers for three years, and that nothing seems to have been done about it, suggests that Aviation Week doesn’t care. Given how bad things are, all they’d need do to realize major improvement would be to have each guest record his/her own audio on a smartphone, email the individual audio tracks to a child (I’m guessing somebody at Aviation Week has one in the household), and the child could put these together using a simple program like Garageband to achieve a podcast of immeasurably better sound quality than what Aviation Week is currently putting out. The content of this podcast is often excellent, but I’m tired of struggling to hear/understand what’s being said.
Too much speculation
Lot of guessing, few facts
