Need to fix Audio

Even pre covid the audio was awful. I understand local media has to pump sunshine but I wish they would be more realistic about Nebraska athletics struggles.

Abysmal Audio

Do you guys record this in a wind tunnel with the children from poltergeist coming through the TV behind you? Don’t you guys all literally work for a multimedia company? Feel like this shouldn’t be an issue.
