Scuba equipment

Great podcasts, but please do something about the phone in guests sounding like they are wearing scuba equipment! Not their fault of course but surely your engineers can solve what is a very annoying problem 👍

Essential listening for Welsh fans.

So happy I discovered this. The hosts are knowledgable, likeable and give you exactly what you need to know. A great addition to the already great coverage by WalesOnline. One thing you guys could look into improving is normalising the sound levels, Andy is noticably louder than Matt so I have to turn it up or down frequently. When producing the episodes mess around with the compression a bit.
