Love this show!
This is my favorite podcast. As an aspiring bartender/service professional, I love all the guests they bring on every week and learning about spirits, cocktails, history, and hospitality.
I’ve been listening to Speak Easy for many years. I love it. But, I just tried to listen to Ducks On The Water. Totally unlistenable because of background noise. Seriously, Souther? You’ve been doing this for a long time. You should have it down, technically, by now. The young lady in the piece sounded enthusiastic and fun and smart. But I’ll never know how much because of the noise. You couldn’t find a quiet spot to interview her?!? So, awesome podcast, but this particular one was let down by lack of preparation. If you don’t take the time to set up and do a nice sounding pod why should we spend the time to listen?
Love this podcast!
Damon and Sother are informative and fun, both good interviewers with great guests. Both have a great set of pipes too! (I mean their voices lol)
