Great start

Could use better sound quality and please stop saying “and stuff like that….” But I love the content !

Talking

You talk waaaay to much. I drove 20mins some where and you still was at the intro.

Embarrassing

The concept is interesting, the execution was awful. The host seems unaware that they’re being recorded. It doesn't sound like there’s an outline or consideration of linear storytelling. I had no idea what the podcast was about. The host desperately needs a script. I’d revisit the podcast if they got a producer and editor.

One star for sound quality, which was exceptional compared to other elements.
