Best Podcast Regarding the EV Industry

I've been visiting the website for years but only just recently started listening to the podcast. I saw a few reviews citing problems with their audio. I haven't noticed any issues with audio dropping or with Seth's voice being too low so I'm not sure if those problems ever existed to begin with or if they were fixed.
