Well organized and informative, but audio levels

The hostess is well informed and keeps to schedule. Even more importantly, she keeps the show guests on topic and on schedule. Only gripe is audio level management. The call in guests are very quiet, the interviewer is normal, and the intro and fade out music is deafening. Keep up the good work and add a mixing board.

Great info but...

The info on this show is excellent but certain ‘guests’ audio is not at the same level as the host so we find ourselves constantly adjusting the volume or just skipping that ep.

An essential link to anything a looper needs to know. Joining the group has been a phenomenal source of real time navigation and resources
