Please get David trained on the microphone better!

David Ubben’s volume going up and down has to get better. He goes from yelling into the mic to mumbling and trailing off, all in one sentence. I love the pod but this makes it really hard to stick with. I’m not going to stop listening, but you deserve the honest feedback. I like what he has to say, but I cringe when I have to adjust my volume up and down just to listen. Thanks and keep up the rest of the great content.
