Good content cannot be overcome poor audio

Still early, and gave it a try. Between the poor audio quality (I hate the echo-like sound, use a headphone mic or something) and someone clearly eating at one point and the noise of a plate constantly getting hit by a fork, I don't know if I'll continue.

Slow start but hoping for better

Was looking forward to a good podcast on the badger Bball team as I found good ones for football and volleyball. So far too much silly commentary and wasting time on topics that don't add value (debating rivalry feelings, trillion talk). Discussion between them is forced and doesn't flow as a good conversation. They are good at throwing out tons of stats but I'm looking for more insights into strategy, technical analysis of the game from both teams and explaining more about the fundamentals of Bball. Couldn't even listen to the entire last one after the Marq game. Will give it a few more weeks as it is a new podcast and they may adjust based on feedback.
