So much potential

I’m not a Memphis native but have fallen in love with learning about its rich history. I want this podcast to be good so badly, however the audio is pretty bad and the conversation trails off into tangents. I’d love it if it were a bit more scripted and even storyteller style. Reference Atlanta Archive podcast.
