Pronman Needs to Chill

Love the consistent quality draft coverage.

But Cory Pronman needs to stop rudely interrupting Scott Wheeler. It’s getting weird.

24 Draft

I know you're at the draft but if I cant hear you with all the background noise i’m not listening

Pete L Mitchell ,

Terrible sound!

I appreciate that you put out a quick post-draft pod, however, the sound was terrible. This happened to be the first time I listened to the show so I’m not sure how it is other times, but maybe find better microphones and a quieter setting next time? How about the hotel room instead of the lobby? Content wise, I’d say it was fairly good.
