Thank you, sir. May I have another?

Love the ‘cast. Need it to happen more often. Record your Zoom audio, edit and add the intro music. Done! Once a month - or whenever - not bueno. Let’s have more and more regular. Like an audio bran muffin!

Difficult to Decipher when Everyone Speaks

I think this could be so informative but when everyone is speaking at the same time, it’s frustrating as a listener.

Great content; awful audio

Hard to follow when 4 people are animatedly talking into the same mic at the same time. Latest episode was in a bar with distracting background noise and conversation. Someone get these folks some $ for better production values!
