Great, but a few things

I love the Vergecast! I’ve been listening for about a year now, and it’s always relaxing, informative, and thought-provoking. However, since I didn’t start at the beginning of the show, I get confused sometimes, as do my peers who listen.

It would be amazing if the crew could set up an “explained” episode, like a guide to the Vergecast given its complexity and range of topics. Some ideas for discussion:
ARM processors
Paul’s segment (what’s the inside joke?)
RSS readers
The gate towards IR blasters
RCS, Aloe, all of the texting crap
“Promo code”

I just get caught up on all of these acronyms and inside jokes.
Otherwise, keep on being great!

Poor audio control

I do enjoy the topics this show covers. Specifically dropped in for discussion on breaking up amazon and luminary discussion but I found it difficult to follow either due to the terrible audio control.

Why are they yelling to talk? Lots of the language is mumbled between laughs in the thick of the discussions which the laughs will BOOM out, you’re constantly adjusting your volume and still being assaulted. Not clear audio coverage for everyone, altering vocal levels between speakers some sound like they are yelling across the room at a mic...

Constant and continuous cutting other speakers off.. just not very productive discussion habits that make it hard to follow if you’re not giving the podcast 100% of your attention and how many listeners do?

Breathing into the mic or poor speech patterns so speech will end with a loud gust of air into the mic...

These would be forgivable issues if this was a new podcast but they are not new to this. I wish I could put up with it because this is a feed full of topics I care about but I don’t care to be audibly assaulted.

I think shows like this aim to sound like morning radio shows or tv news but in this form it always comes across (to me) exhausting.

If you find it hard to enjoy podcasts with these type of audio issues move on. I doubt if they haven’t worked out these issues at this point that they ever will.

Love the Content

I can’t get enough of the Friday episode especially. Nilay, Dieter and Paul work well together as hosts. The interview episodes are super informative and don’t feel like platforms for execs to spew marketing copy at me.
