Good but not great

I’ve been listening for many years. I stick with it because of the spot-on analysis by the panelists. But the podcast has its flaws. Technically, the volume of this podcast is much lower than that of every other podcast I listen to. Despite having it all the way up on my iPhone, the audio can’t be heard over the din in the fitness center where I exercise. Regarding content, I find Alan Chartock to be condescending at times. Plus, he tells the same tired stories over and over. But again, I really enjoy the perspectives of Rex, Judy, Ira and Caitlin (and Alan’s, too).
