Terrible production quality

I really enjoyed the content -- fascinating. But one host spoke loudly & clearly into mike. The other host spoke softly and seemed to be facing a different direction to the mike. I couldn't here him for quite a few key points which was frustrating! Please fix this as I would like to listen!

No research, very unintelligent conversation

I listened to just one episode and felt the content was terrible. They picked a great topic - Howdy Modi. But there was no research done, I didn’t learn anything new, and it was basically 2 people on the street talking about something that neither of them had any idea about. Lots of speculation and zero credibility. Not listening to this any more.

Decent podcast- production quality poor, facts misplaced sometimes, but overall a good take

Update as of May 28th:
Just heard Indian Elections Part 1 episode.
Looks like the production quality went even further down. Especially towards the end when Rohit is speaking, there's so much noise (iBelieve from Bunty's mic). It's as if a toddler is fondling with the mic. It was terrible to focus on the wonderful points Rohit was making.
Please fix your production quality. You guys do bring up interesting viewpoints and facts.

I listen to this podcast almost regularly.
Many of the episodes were quite entertaining, insightful and matured.

My biggest concern is the Poor production quality.
Especially Bunty is excessively loud, interruptive and hyper at times.
On the other hand, Rohit is calm, composed and sober.

But both of them share good points usually.
One particular episode I really didn’t like- About “BaabaBaazi”. It’s more of a question of Faith. You cannot comment while degrading some particular sets of people without knowing fully what goes on.

I think the quality of the mic used by Bunty is really bad.
Even his handling about it is below par -for example many times I have heard him putting on clothes or putting off clothes while talking into the mic. one time I think I even heard him opening or closing the zip of his pants or jacket which is really unprofessional.
Many times when he speaks into the mic, he seems to be working on some things like housekeeping or other errands around the house. All those noises make it a very unprofessional audio.

Sometimes their facts are found lacking. That’s when they start speculating based on what they think they know.
