Volume balancing needs work

I enjoy the content in most episodes, some interviewers are a bit more focused than others, but a consistent issue is poorly balanced volume. From episode to episode the content is too quiet, and when the ads come on my eardrums are shattered. This isn’t very hard to manage, most podcasts I listen to have figured this out

Get a handle on political distraction

A). The stuff this podcast can do well ought to be neutral ground...there are lots of better equipped outfits to handle political opinion (left or right). Your frequent excursions are amateur hour, not your expertise (nor your guests, depending), and strike about half your theoretical audience as deeply petty and sometimes ill-informed.

B). In the first place, I don’t see why you have to alienate or chase away half of your otherwise pretty happy audience by repeatedly making your personal / guest political positions (as long as they agree with you) front and center. If we’re here and listening to something so niche, shouldn’t we all be able to mostly be interested in your guests expertise and experience without continually jabbing half of us in the eye? If continued, I’d be disappointed, but compelled to unsubscribe.

Great and frustrating at teh same time

Great information and education along with great guests.The one thing that drives me crazy is the poor volume setting heard. You go from one of the people speaking at a good volume and then the other you can barely hear. Tying to adjust the differing volumes while running is really difficult as sometimes the peopel exchanging the words may be talking for short periods. Seems like it woudl be an easy thing to fix.
