Quality is embarrassing
Christ , Chris as a broadcaster and one that deals with digital media you would think your recording equipment and quality is up to par. It’s abysmal! Every time I agonizingly listen to your podcast I have to blast the volume to barely have it at a reasonable level. Sounds like I’m listening to a call on speaker. For the love of god please address this issue and or your equipment.
Scratches a serious itch
Who knows how small the Center section is in the Venn diagram showing overlap of automotive enthusiasts, intellectuals, and lovers of witty and well crafted repartée. If you’re that odd individual in that overlap, or even if just two of those three criteria apply to you, rush, don’t amble, to this podcast. It scratches a serious itch in these pandemic times, but I bet you I will be still listening to it once the vaccine is out and we can carry on with life as normal. From thoughtful and provocative dialogue on subjects like electrification, the limits of usability and supercars, two interviews with true giants in the field, this podcast showcases the presenters wide wide range. It’s a delight
