Fine, but major audio issues

This is an amazing story and an well-organized podcast, but i just can’t get over the major audio leveling issues to listen to the whole thing. This podcast constantly flips from phone interviews to in-person interviews with the journalist, and are always WAY too loud and difficult to understand, with no help from the host as to what they’re saying. Constantly turning the volume up and down. A complete waste, might as well not have them if no one can understand what they’re saying and there’s no clarification thereafter.

Best podcast!

My fav podcast yet! I couldn’t stop listening—in my car, at work, during my run, etc. etc.

Review

Enjoyed the story of this podcast, but it dragged out way too long. I tended to get bored listening to all those phone interviews that seemed to get longer as the episodes went on. Great story, but could have been shorter and more to the point.
