What did he say?

Overall great podcast. Talking about watches is a lot like trying to describe dancing. It can be a tough thing to do well but this podcast does it! My biggest criticism is the sound quality. First few episodes were recorded at a very low level (could barely hear it while driving.) The last episode about dive watches, Brian Duffy's voice was in an out (was he across the table from the microphones?). Normally I'd chalk it up to my old ears but this issue only affects this podcast...none of the others I listen to. More interviews with brand developers, to better understand inspiration, design elements, etc. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Great but the CEO of WofS needs improvement

It’s a great podcast with awesome interviews but the CEO of Watches of Switzerland needs to work on his interview skills. Let the speaker talk and stop saying “yep” every 5 seconds. It’s beyond annoying.
