Good Conversations

I’d recommend writing the guests name in the episode title rather than the host’s... Otherwise it’s great

Audio quality needs to improve

Great content, but dampened by the awful sound quality. There’s no way that FT can’t get better microphones and production software.

Great Content - Poor Audio

I’d listen to you every day if the audio volume was the same throughout. There is great content on here, but I am constantly adjusting my volume because it’s not clear/too quiet or hurts my ears. The additional editing or equipment will work wonders for your show.
