Audio Quality Needs Improving

The content of the podcast is worth listening too, but the audio quality is terrible. Each contributer needs to have their won mic

Worth trying - episodes too short though

Sone of the best commentary you’ll get about MN from people who are actually in MN. But 15 minutes might as well be 15 seconds- seriously the episodes are so short. They need to kick it out to 45-60 min and had a couple topics per episode

1-dimensional, unsophisticated, superficial

Where’s the skepticism? the in-depth analysis? I was told these hosts were journalists, which usually implies some command of the issues. Instead, we get “wow gee whiz gosh ain’t that surprising huh weird what’ll happen next I don’t know oh well guess we’ll have to wait and see.” Two stars for effort, Star Tribune, but the product is about as lousy as the rest of the paper.
