Audio quality severely limits usefulness

I can’t make out more than a couple words per sentence because of the audio quality. Cochrane is, like, the titular institution for ultimate-quality systematic review of biomedical literature, yet its AV team is cool with system input-level recording quality?

Great podcast... Poor sound

The quality of the sound is poor making it difficult to listen to.
The introduction is quite impossible to understand. Please, do something.
For the love science !

Dry, oddly chosen topics, often not in English!

Poorly recorded in random languages, topics of little impact, too-simple vocabulary for even intensely professional clinical mgmt issues.
