Terrible sound quality
How come the sound is so terrible? A lot of echoing and just generally hard to follow. It’s like a zoom session. Can you get a better microphone and suggest your guests to a specific sound standard?
Sound quality very poor
This is likely an important podcast. Their own microphone system is in sharp contrast. The podcaster is likely moving her head back and forth in front of a stationery mic. This has the effect of her voice going up and down and is difficult to follow.
Workers right news!!!
This is a must-listen for any labor organizer or union member starved for news about workers rights! You can’t find any mention of these labor issues in corporate media, but Belabored lays it all out! I only wish this podcast came out more frequently.
