Canton Gilligan ,

Love it. Improve the sound quality, please

Love hearing stuff from my home town of Bmore & the BBJ podcast hits the right people & the right topics. I just wish I didn’t need to max the volume in my car just in order to faintly hear the guest. Beef up your audio quality, please! If that gets fixed, this goes from 4 to 5+ stars.
