Volume Levels Need Worm

Overall volume is lower than nearly every other podcast one on this platform. Also, one guy is often quieter than the other, which means when you turn it up to hear him, the other guy blows you out when he starts talking.

Good podcast however

I like the breakdown you provided for the western conference, but please work on player name pronunciation. It was like listening to Don Cherry pronounce non North American names.

Woke generation

So another decent podcast ruined by the woke generation. I want to hear hockey news. Not half baked opinions. These guys are better in print, listening to them is maddening. Stop “like, like, liking” so much. As for the “other” added podcasts to the lineup. What a bunch of turds. Unfortunately not much else is available, but I’ll be looking.
This podcast has consistently gotten worse over the years. To the point I may listen once or twice a year to remind myself how bad it is.
My friend does a better self supported podcast about old Apple computers that are produced better than this one.
