Great Insight but volume is too low

Not sure if it is just me, but since I started using AirPods the volume is substantially lower than any other podcast I listen to

Great but....

They need better equipment. When they recored at a real studio the sound quality was way better. Last few months it’s very difficult to hear. I love the podcast but hope the sound quality improves.

Great insight

I’m a beginner at analyzing the market and your recommendations are great. Listen to every show you have, but compared to the other podcasts I listen to I can’t turn the volume up high enough to hear. Please turn up the volume on the mic. Barely hear at the gym and in the car.

Thanks for helping me find a hobby!
