Great podcast, but why is the audio quality so bad?

Title says it all, really. I binge watch/listen to Rebecca Watson’s video and the sound quality is sharp despite it being video. I know the length here requires compression, but that’s no excuse for a professional podcast. And I’m aware she’s Zoom conferencing with her guests, but at least her mic should be providing good sound. It is possible to get good sound even when video conferencing your podcast guests.
