Could be better

Quit the small talk and lags in between speaking. Lot of wasted time.

Please fix the audio quality

I can’t listen to this podcast because the audio is so poor it makes it not enjoyable.

Great Content

I would give this podcast five stars for the content. However I’m taking points off because there is a lot of unnecessary background noise during the broadcast. Also the hosts talk over each other a lot and their laughter screws up the flow of the podcast. However I will keep listening because it is well worth it just for the content.
