Content is Life-giving/Sound is painful
I have waited a very long time to say this because WHAT you have to share is just plain "necessary" for life. However, the sound quality is painful to my ears and my emotions. The giggling, sometimes loud voices (excited?), talking over each other has made me so tense emotionally, as well as being an extremely unpleasant sound to my ears, has, sadly, very often led me to turn off your podcast. Normally, I "unfollow" other podcasts in which the hosts voice quality and techniques are unpleasant and unprofessional. But I keep following you and trying to return to listening over and over because your content is beyond excellent. Help! I really NEED to listen (not read the transcript) to your podcast! It's just too physically painful to listen to. I know you enjoy each other but....
Every episode God speaks to me about an area where I can let go of me and better serve Him. I love you guys!!
