Highly recommend

This podcast is just wonderful. Daniel and Jorge make complex subjects easily accessible. They explain things in a way that is easy to understand and so enjoyable to listen to. I’ve learned a lot.

Can’t stand his voice

I love the content but can’t listen due to to the hyped bass heavy vocal quality. Its annoying. Cut your frequencies, turn it down and stop listening to your own processed deep voice in slow motion. You are talking about science. You are not a 70’s DJ spinning a Barry White album.

I’d suggest beginning with a Google search on an EQ chart and start researching where the voice belongs……….in the Mids

I will be back if fixed

Nice content

The content in the episodes I’ve listened to so far is pretty good. The audio quality is pretty terrible if you’re listening in a car. It’s pretty heavily bass boosted and makes the audio very mucky. I’m listening to the high 500’s episode numbers right now and the audio is pretty bad.

If you’re willing to eq it yourself or listening on flat response headphones it’s a good listen.
