Content is good but audio is horrible

The content is interesting but they need to find a producer to mix the audio.

Great content and enjoy current hosts

I’ve been a listener of the pod for a few years now and the current trio of hosts - Scarlet, Michael, and Mike - are the best so far. I enjoy the mix of sports business news/discussion, the interviews of sports business leaders, and Michael Barr’s weekly fantasy updates during football season. Thanks to Scarlet for breaking up the boys club. It’s been refreshing.

Ads blasting in your ears

Business of Sports once again raises the volume of ads to a literally painful level, so much so that I must hurriedly fumble for the audio controls to lower the volume. And the ads start running with no lead time. Just boom, BUY THIS PRODUCT NOW!

Other podcasts don’t do this. Of all the podcasts to which I subscribe, Business of Sports alone assaults your ears with loud, LOUD, LOUD! ads.

I unsubscribed once because of this. Then it stopped. Now the audio assault is back. Unsubscribing again.

Bye, bye, Old Man Barr. I’ll miss ya. But my ears are more important than any podcast.
