Interview with George/Brad

Super show!

Speak up

What a great podcast about how we all deal with an ever-changing world. Very topical and informative. Thanks for sharing the voices often time limited to a sound-bite.
One suggestion for the hosts, please speak louder! Your guests share their stories (even on the phone/not in studio) at a perfect volume. However, every time the hosts asks a question or makes commentary, their voices are like they’re away from the microphone; as if they hit the “whisper “ button. I often have to turn the volume way up and then down again when the guests speak.

So necessary

This is an excellent series. Only problem is I think two episodes were recorded on top of one another in “I was guilty of speaking Spanish.”
