Joebernoli ,

Very engaging and informational

I'm new to this podcast but so fast it's been very interesting. The guests are very learned and forthcoming and seem to be enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge.
However, I have found that towards the end of the first two podcasts Noah asks a question to the guest and their response to the question starts playing over the top of Noah's question before it has been asked. I'm guessing this is an editing issue but it is noticeable.

What’d they say?

I’ve only started listening so naturally I started with the fist episode. Good content and dialogue but I hope the editing gets better because the sometimes the guest’s answers I’ve leaps the host’s question making the conversation very difficult to follow for a few seconds.
