Love the Content; Slight Audio Issues

I really enjoybthe prsopect talk and haven't really found anything to itch this niche elsewhere. Enjoy the insight drom John and Jim; only issue is sometimes the audio quality is low or off, which holds it back from 5-stars for me, but I really, really enjoy the content

One Gripe

I love the podcast! You all do a very good job. But please someone tell Callis that it’s not “ops” its “O-P-S”. No one in the game pronounces it as “ops”.
