Audio issues season 3
I am a huge fan of the pod I’ve been listening since i have started working on my canna brand with that being said you’re all great inspirations but one thing I’ve noticed compared to other seasons is in the beginning you guys are extremely quiet! Any possible way to get the audio a bit louder? Keep up the great work!
