Voice talent great but can’t hear in kitchen

Mark Stratton’s voice is wonderful to listen to! But in my kitchen, I can’t really hear him amidst the normal kitchen sounds. Podcasts need to consider who consumes this particular media and how. When typical listener hits play, what else are they doing? Somebody who listens to 60-second science is likely busy doing other things. Is it about the voice talent? Or is it about the audience?
