Great podcast but dubious sound!

I love these podcasts. They’re very insightful and are wonderfully knowledgeable.
The presenters are great. A news output who has some amazing female contributors, which is good.
However, the sound quality is sometimes distracting. Mouths are quite often too near the microphone creating a popping sound on ‘p’, ‘d’ and ‘b’ sounds.
Even the intro on this and every episode where a subscription to the magazine is offered, there is the popping sound.
Please listen on AirPods and see how loud and annoying this is!
James always speaks to closely to the mic. It drives me wild. It doesn’t need to me on your mouth. It’s a microphone. It’s designed to pick up sound from a small distance away! Seriously. It’s awful to listen to on AirPods.
Otherwise, keep up the great work!
Thanks!

🇬🇧 yes! Very informative

My new go to source for what I need to know about UK politics. I enjoy the short length, eloquence, humour and bend. Also the possibility of a second episode during the day keeps me peaked. It makes me miss The UK as it appears not every one has gone insane. Thank You.

Excellent Podcasts

The Spectator podcasts can only be described as excellent! The commentators are insightful, interesting, entertaining, and they help me make sense of the special kind of crazy that politics has become. Of all of the podcasts I listen to - and they are numerous - the Spectator podcasts are the best. Keep up the excellent work!
