Positively compelling and a grand delight

I make time every new episode to listen to Frank and Crystal. They are very good people who i could listen to for hours converse about emotions books aroused in them. I found the podcast when I was trying to become a librarian and these two make me want to be a writer so that maybe they could chat about a book written by me!

Can We Get Frank A Better Microphone?

I enjoy the two hosts but can the NYPL part with a little endowment $ to get Frank some better audio equipment? It really detracts from the podcast. Unfollowing.
