Good pod, terrible sound quality

I really want to like this podcast being a long time knicks fan, I’d listen to anything knicks but I have to really rant about the sound quality of this pod cast. Marc Berman sounds like he’s in a 90s phone booth every time he’s on. Any interview they decide to share always sound like it’s being broadcasted out of a cassette tape. Do better guys, you gotta be able to filter them before putting it on cause it sounds terrible when I listen to it on my drive. I can hear voicemails better on the Jalen and Jacoby podcast - that’s a podcast you really need to listen to!!
