Volume control

The content is fun and I enjoy it mostly. I cancelled before and am considering cancelling again because the dialog volumes are all messed up. The host volume is consistently low and the guest volume is abrasively loud.

still tri-ing ,

Rename it "The Cookbook Review"

With a title like "Clever Cookstr" I was hoping for some quick tips about working in the kitchen. It's really just a cookbook review show that may or may not involve anything useful or any actual tips. I don't want to feel like I have to buy each of the hundreds of cookbooks to learn something new instead of just hearing about another chef's background and why they decided to write a cookbook. :( bleh.
