Love it, but get a microphone
Best analysis, worst audio ever. Do they listen back at all to hear what it sounds like?
Good ta;l; terrible audio
This is usually good with interesting guests but the audio is often terrible. How could NBC let this kind of sound get out?
Needs New Editor
I look forward to this podcast each week because of the high quality guests Chuck is able to bring on. I do think, however, Chuck is often the weakest link on his own show. His panic is plagued with audio issues as well as Chuck’s tendency to begin his sentences very loudly but end them in a whisper. There are episodes here and there that are so inaudible I switch to something else.
