A favorite

Love the interviews with Rob Morgan and the story of Marion Miley. Great podcast!

Sadie Townsend ,

Great content, seems like sound issue resolved, too.

Love this show! Especially the crime episodes.

It was too quiet before, but it seems to be fixed now.

Needs some help to be good

Great content but sound quality is lacking. To be a very good podcast, the library needs to take advantage of its excellent resources and improve the sound especially. I love listening to this but compared to other podcasts the sound is the main issue that needs addressing.
Examples:
Low to high sound when laughter is introduced. Can hurt ears since volume already needed to be turned up.
Bad micing for interviews, one is high other low, another strain on ears.

Clean these things up and I’ll rate you a 5 in the futute!
