Improve on it!

Keep it as local as possible with relevant topic selection that affects locals. Stay away from big national themes and topics (GOT? Why?)since there are other podcasts for that!

Great info needs work

I love the issues and reporting they bring but I wish the sound quality was much better. It would also be helpful to condense the info and not joke about stuff as much, it takes awhile for some segments to end.

Audio Issue: Leather Chair

Just subscribed. Nice to have local news. But it sounds like someone is moving around in a leather chair early in episode 72. A little annoying. Also, info for people not viewing video would be appreciated. (What shirt?)
