Absolutely terrible audio

Let me start by saying I love PWI. Read it in my childhood and still pick up the occasional issue today. Podcast content and discussion is great;What kills me is the absolutely atrocious audio (taking off 2 stars for how bad it is). I had enough and decided to write this review after a recent one where they interviewed PCO. Couldn’t hear most of the interview with my headphones on and the volume at 100%. Had to listen in my Car with both the phone and car volume at 100% (and even then there were parts that couldn’t be heard). Just listened to the interview with Bruce Mitchell and it went from not being able to hear to screaming as the audio levels changed. Come on PWI. Invest in better equipment, hire an audio engineer (or a better one), whatever. I hear lots of other podcasts where the people aren’t in the same room and don’t have the same problem. Makes y’all seem totally Bush league.
