Boersma

Great interview, but sound quality sub-par. Can we not invest a few $ in a sound quality upgrade?

natanalevin ,

Insightful but poor sound quality

Upgrading the sound quality would make the podcast significantly more listenable and shouldn’t be all that expensive

Great content, bad sound

This is an amazing podcast. But either the host (usually mark bauerline) or the guest is loud and clear, while the other is quiet and unclear. It’s distracting to what should be a wonderful podcast
