The audio inconsistent... parts of show fine but play at full volume... minute 32 on was pretty audible in my car but still full volume. Great content
Still issues with audio being too low and inconsistent. Interviewer volume low and person being interviewed was almost inaudible. Struggled through those issues however and enjoyed the content.
Fantastic content but the volume was so low with Brad that I couldn’t hear what he was saying, then Audra was so loud she almost blew my speakers out.
