Good content, poor audio quality

The content is good and the speakers are interesting. But for a podcast of this caliber, the audio quality of the guests is very poor, which makes it sometimes impossible to understand anything.

Audio

Why does the host sound like he’s recording on a potato? Otherwise neat concept.
