Customer Reviews

1irogen ,

Please improve microphones!

Host is great. So is the info. Guests are generally undermiked. And when host and a guests are going back and forth, it sounds like a murmured private conversation.
It’s overall well presented. One other small issue. If time is limited. I would rather hear their expertise on Chinese Medicine rather than 10 minutes of their back ground.
Overall, many thanks!
