No Troll/No Spin

Covering one of the most loved, hyped and hated teams in sports without cranking up the drama or taking a side, this is Lakers talk for grown ups.
Having been around since the Kobe/Pau championship runs, and with a deep knowledge of the franchise, the Kamenetzy brothers tell it like it is.
Sometimes wrapped up in some pretty painful dad jokes*

Good Podcast/Bad Audio

The content is fantastic and if the audio wasn’t so poor I would give it 5 stars. It sounds like an echo chamber and is really difficult to listen to. Fix the audio issue and the rating changes to 5 stars.

Audio is too bad to listen

It sounds like it could be cool but you will never know since everyone sounds like they are whispering at you from the International Space Station. Makes me think no one cares about the podcast enough to put a little effort into sound engineering. Listening to the first 2 seconds would have tipped someone off. I listen to tons of podcasts daily and have never heard anything this bad. I’m really hoping to find a regular Laker podcast but this audio quality hurts too much.

Update 11/4: audio quality is getting better (less tin-y) but I still have to listen to this on full volume compared to everything else on lowish volume.
