Excellent motorcycle podcast

This is one of the best motorcycle podcasts that I have listened to. Engaging interviews with interesting people. I’ve learned a lot. I’m giving this four stars because of the consistently poor audio quality. A few of the episodes were so hard to hear I couldn’t finish them.

Poor recording quality

I so desperately want to leave more stars for my rating / review. The guests and topics are great for all motorcycle enthusiasts- but someone needs to buy some new microphones. The recordings sound like they are made in a cave using an iPhone mic at a distance. I just wish the production quality was better.

I’ll return as a regular listener when the editors buy a microphone.

Ep 54

An episode about what the 2 writers have covered in their journalism career. Very little value to the listener.
