This is a great idea

Excited to hear more episodes. BYUI blessed my life!

Good content, bad audio quality

Great idea for a podcast. I know it’s only the first episode, but the audio quality was really poor. Mono and muffled audio for the guest, and the host’s audio was quiet at times (lots of um, uh-hubs, while the guest was speaking). The sound at the end was also really loud compared to the whole episode. Looking forward to more episodes though!
