Good info... but host could improve

This podcast is very informative. Presents good news and information. However, the host could improve her speaking skills. Her voice is very low and her articulation is not the clearest. I always have to turn my volume substantially higher to be able to comfortably hear her. If you listen to The Energy Gang, for example, you can tell how much better the audio experience is. Hopefully she can improve and the audio volume can be corrected, because this podcast is a good source of information. Additionally, it could be better if this podcast wasn’t sponsored by dirty-energy Chevron and their green-washing ads, but I guess they are helping us get this for free, so can’t complain.
Nonetheless, it is a good podcast. Keep up the decent work, it has potential to be outstanding.
