A vital source of local news, but why do the sound levels vary so much?

This is a really valuable source of local San Diego news, and I would miss it a lot if it went away. There is one thing about it that I find frustrating, though: why are the sound levels so different between different parts? Often the interviewer in studio is more much quieter than the phone/skype interviewee. Field pieces are much quieter than host segments. Ads are much louder than everything else. I can't just set the volume and walk away without three minutes later either being unable to hear something, or else being blasted with sound. One episode is much quieter or much louder than the previous one, so when I fall behind a bit and my computer runs through the backlog, I get these jarring changes in sound levels in going from one episode to the next.

I haven’t heard from Tom Fudge in many years. He was good.

It is sad that every story has someone sucking up to the Pro-Trump extremists.

Sweet local news

Thanks for bringing KPBS to the podcast world so I don’t ever have to miss another episode of Midday Edition. I appreciate the guest selection, the short and succinct interviews, the thoughtful questions, and of course, the local coverage. I love hearing about the upcoming weekend highlights with Beth Acomando, and the direct smooth coverage presented by Maureen Cavanaugh.

My only caveat is that I sometimes have technical problems. This week, for example, I stopped receiving updates. It seems the subscription canceled and stopped downloading episodes on its own, without me doing anything. This is not the first time that happens. Sometimes there will be no audio when I play. The volume is typically very low compared to other podcasts I listen to, like Marketplace. They are little technical issues that keep happening. I hope this gets resolved.

Updated May 2019:
I like all podcasts in one. Less commercials, better flow. I just have to select one podcast, instead of five or more, when curating my feed. Love Jade Hindman. I can hear her loud and clear in my car. More diversity-driven coverage. Thank you!
