Very good podcast

The content is really good, very interesting subjects but why the panning of the hosts left and right? That can be annoying when listening with AirPods …

Terrible Panning on a “Audio Education” Podcast

I’ve loved this pod for couple years, but can’t not give a low rating, just to be sure you see that myself feel ( and I believe I’v seen other reviews agreeing ) that the panning of the content, does not match the medium ( listening in cars, one headphone while at work, etc…. ). How can we trust the content if it’s not aware of how the content is listened to.

EdEarnest ,

Solid info…

I appreciate the info and reminders that Jody & Chris share. To me this is just the right show length to cover these types of topics. No matter how long a person is in recording world there is always room to improve, learn something new, or be reminded or encouraged along the way. Thanks guys.
