Quality Content, Subpar Audio Quality

The Podcast covers a wide array of topics, all applicable to anyone in retail. The content is insightful and broad. Only downside is that the audio quality is quite poor. A small investment in the audio equipment would do a ton for the Podcast.

Low quality production

The quality of the audio is so poor it distracts from the audio. If the audio were better, the rating would increase to a 2.5 star rating. The content just doesn’t seem that forward thinking.
